How often do your bare feet touch the ground?
How long has it been since you took your shoes off and walked on a beach, across some grass or squished your toes in a mud puddle?
I’m guessing for most it may have been a while…
Often it’s the simple things that can make the biggest difference in life.
I spend pretty much all of my time at home barefoot.
If I can get away with not wearing shoes I won’t.
Even if I’m running a workshop or attending a course you can guarantee the shoes will be gone by lunchtime..
If I am stressed the first thing I do is to get my feet on the earth and “ground” myself.
I once read about a Swedish study that found those who took their shoes off under their desks at work lived an average of 3 years longer than their shoe-wearing office counterparts.
(I actually can’t find that study on Google so perhaps I made it up- it sounds good anyway…)
So, why should we get our shoes off?
