Walk barefoot and build resilient feet
Did you know that you can benefit a lot by walking barefoot? When your bare skin comes in contact with the earth directly, the negative ions present in the earth can help balance the positive ions in your body and this will improve your health in many aspects.
Build strong and resilient feet by exposing them to a variety of surfaces on a regular basis. This is why:
– The feet are packed with nerve endings that sense deep pressure, light touch, vibration, etc. These nerve endings are there for a reason… They are supposed to be stimulated regularly as your feet are exposed to surface variation.
– Our feet tend to get very soft and delicate these days. Being in shoes and socks all the time will do this. The skin on the bottom of the feet gets highly sensitive when always protected and padded.
– Building strong and resilient feet means exposing them to various surfaces and desensitizing them. You will build stronger and more resilient skin and your feet working like they naturally should by doing this.
Walking in rock gardens is a good way to do this. It “hurts” at first, but then your feet get used to it over time. It starts to feel really good and actually is a great way to naturally mobilise and massage your feet after a day in shoes.
