2020 is certainly throwing quite a few curve balls with not only how to manage diabetes, but also how we all go about our daily lives. So, it makes this 'National Diabetes Week' even more important as we focus on diabetes and your mental and emotional health.

And while we all have that little bit more time at home, we thought it would be a nice mental health break to remember the simple and practical things you can do to help take care of your valuable feet.

So how well are you taking care of yourself? From your head to your feet! Make yourself a cuppa and click on the link to learn more.
