Have You Been Practicing Earthing? Here Is What You Have Been Missing Out On!
Are you planning on taking a vacation this summer? Or maybe you are spending some time camping or in the mountains? Whatever you have planned, make sure to allocate some time to the practice of earthing.
Earthing means walking barefoot and has a number of surprising health benefits that has contributed to making it a recommended health practice. Walking barefoot means walking on soil, grass, sand or any natural surface.
The main and most important connection between walking barefoot and our health has to do with the communication between our bodies and the electrons of the earth.
Our bodies emit positive charges regularly, while the earth releases a healthy amount of negative charges along with free radicals. When you walk barefoot, both your body and the earth connect and restore the balance of positive and negative charges which keeps your internal bioelectrical system stable.
We are surrounded daily with a very high quantity of positive ions coming from our TV sets, cell phones, microwaves etc.. This creates a misbalance in your body and makes it more prone to imbalance leading to inflammation and disease.
But It Doesn’t Stop Here!
Walking barefoot helps you clear your mind. You actively engage in the activity of walking when you are barefoot to avoid any thorns which helps you be mindful of what you are doing and focus on the present.
It also strengthens and stretches the muscles of your feet, ankles and calves.
Walking barefoot stimulates the circulation in your feet by boosting all the reflex points.
Finally, walking barefoot could be just as good as a foot rub! It helps remove dead skin cells from the soles of your feet!
So what are you waiting for? Kick off your shoes and enjoy the feel of the earth on your feet! Happy Earthing!
