There are several potential benefits to walking barefoot, also known as “earthing” or “grounding.” Some people believe that walking barefoot can help reduce inflammation, improve sleep, and increase energy levels by allowing the body to absorb electrons from the Earth. Here are a few specific benefits that have been suggested:
- Reducing inflammation: Some research suggests that walking barefoot may help reduce inflammation in the body, which is a contributing factor to many chronic diseases.
- Improving sleep: Walking barefoot on the ground may help improve sleep quality by reducing the levels of stress hormones in the body and increasing the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep.
- Increasing energy levels: Some people believe that walking barefoot allows the body to absorb electrons from the Earth, which can help increase energy levels and improve overall well-being.
- Improving balance and coordination: Walking barefoot can also help improve balance and coordination by forcing the muscles in the feet and ankles to work harder to stabilize the body.
- Strengthening the feet: Walking barefoot can also help strengthen the muscles and tendons in the feet, which can improve overall foot health.
And remember daily practice is key to maintain your health and well being, although it isn’t a problem if you skip a day or two from time to time, it is much easier to make it a habit and part of your daily schedule. Every little bit helps, if you really don’t feel up to it and don’t have much time, even a 5 minute practice can help. Better little than nothing! Your body will feel so much stronger and flexible, when you keep practicing yoga regularly!
