These 13 Comfy-Yet-Stylish Shoes Are Perfect For Healthcare Workers On Their Feet All Day

Now more than ever, we are all incredibly thankful for our healthcare workers, and really everyone who is on the front lines of taking care of our neighbors and loved ones during this time. I don't happen to be an "essential worker," but when I talk to my friends who are nurses and doctors, the number-one complaint I get from them has been surprising to me: they can't stop complaining about how badly their feet hurt from running around all day and night. Honestly, I don't blame them.


They all asked me for recommendations on the best footwear, followed by the complaint that anything comfortable tends to look extremely plain and, to be frank, ugly. And because none of our heroes have a minute of time to be scouring the internet for the comfiest, most stylish ways to cover their feet, this list is for them.

Send them a pair (or two) and they're bound to be grateful — we won't judge if you're tempted to get yourself a matching set, too.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget.
