The New Normal
Life is different for nearly everyone now. From what we do in our spare time to how much spare time we have, everything has changed. We now speak in terms of either “Essential Employee” or “Non-Essential Employee”, amid this new (but hopefully temporary) way of life. And for those suffering from bunion pain, the current state of their bunion pain can usually be described in one of two ways also; debilitating or recuperating.
For anyone considered an Essential Employee during this unfortunate time, they are working harder and longer hours than they’ve ever had to. Working double time on their feet, usually in a high intensity environment, with little time to rest. Their feet throb so bad that even when they finally lay down to rest, the pain prevents them from falling asleep. And when someone suffers from bunion pain, the throbbing and essentially shredding of skin over the bunion from rubbing in your footwear is just all that more intensified.
Non Essential Employees (We’re all essential)
Now the other category of folks that are laid off, furloughed, work hours reduced, or for business owners that just don’t have the business to work on, they have exactly the opposite challenge. As unfortunate it is to not have work (or very little), they have been granted the opportunity (we like to call it a “silver lining”), to rest and heal up the area around the bunion that often takes on hours of abuse each day. Now they’ve been given a reprieve from bunion pain as they no longer have to cram their feet into high heels, still work boots, or in general, walk miles or stand for hours on their feet 8-12 hours a day. This stress on the foot has been proven to actually progress the bunion even quicker, by the way.
Additionally, those who had their bunionectomy scheduled have now found themselves adjusting to the idea that their bunion surgery has either been cancelled or postponed so that hospitals can save resources and space for those who are critically ill, specifically COVID-10 patients. Sadly, others yet have lost their employment which usually means their healthcare and financial support to undergo an elective procedure such as bunion surgery. Now they must find another solution to their bunion pain.
How to Win or Donate a Bunion Bootie
This all sounds dreadful. But we do have some good news for Essential Employees and Non-Essential Employees alike! First, for the time being (ending when life starts to resemble our old way of living), Bunion Bootie will be donating Bunion Booties to those in need. There are two ways actually!
- First, just by visiting their website www.BunionBootie.com and providing an email address when prompted, visitors can be entered into a weekly drawing for a free Bunion Bootie. No purchase required, they don’t sell your information, no strings whatsoever.
- Additionally, for every customer that buys 3 Bunion Booties, a 4th one will be donated to an Essential Employee in need. Use Promo Code “Donation” at Checkout until May 3, 2020.
Best Without Shoes
For those who have more time on their hands, there’s good news for them too. Bunion Booties are MOST effective when worn without shoes. Barefoot or with loose socks, the Bunion Booties are no longer overcome by the brute force of footwear pushing against the big toe, reducing the chance for correct positioning. Wearing them without shoes gives your feet exactly what Bunion Bootie intended; maximized support, temporary correction, and the room to move. Which results in less bunion pain. This is your time to heal the skin that’s been relentlessly rubbing against your shoes. This is the time to put your feet up and allow the swelling to come down. Massage your feet with Bunion Balm or our Essential Oils for Bunions.
Take care of yourself and your feet. Remember, someday everyone will need to get back to work. And that work might look different too. Instead of a desk job that no longer exists, you might find yourself in retail or a service industry that requires long hours on your feet. Let Bunion Bootie help you prepare your feet to return to the working world without bunion pain. The majority of Bunion Bootie products are on sale as you read this; Bunion Booties (select skus), BunionETTE Booties (select skus), Bunion Balms, and our Essential Oils for Bunions. And please don’t forget – the more you buy, the more you save with our everyday discounts that are automatically applied when you buy more than 2 Booties.
Be well friends & stay safe.
