Since we were kids we listen from our parents, grandparents “put your shoes on”, “don’t leave the house without your shoes!”. The dangerous of stepping on a piece of glass or anything that can hurt our feet is real, for sure. I do not like to walk barefoot myself. I was taught I needed shoes to protect my feet, so they became sensitive to any “weird” texture.
But what you might not know is that when we are grounded, that means, when we are barefoot touching the ground, we feel good. Even if you are in pain, it tends to reduce it. This happens because when we are not centered, grounded, our body is also not centered, not balanced. We are all bioelectrical beings living on an electrical planet. Our body operates electrically. Our cells send multiple frequencies to our heart, muscles, immune system, and nervous system for example. But we are losing that contact with the Earth, we are disconnected. And all this disconnection increases illnesses, like pains, fatigue, anxiety, depression and so on.
In the other hand, connecting to the Earth has amazing benefits that you can start feeling with a couple of weeks practicing it. Some of the benefits include:
Reduced stress levels, by having your cortisol level normalized.
Decreased levels of inflammation and pain.
Okay, okay, you cannot stop wearing shoes and start walking barefoot in the city for the rest of life, right? But how to get all these benefits with this simply practice and how to incorporate it in our daily routine?
Depending on the weather, you can have 20-30 minutes outside, in a park, beach, backyard and walk, stand or just sit with your feet connecting to the ground.
If the weather is not friendly, you still can connect to Earth by searching for some indoor options, investing in grounding products to use to sleep, relax or even at work, like floor and chair mats, chairs, bed pads, body bands.
Time to reconnect to the Earth!
