With the modern lifestyle, it's mostly children who walk or run around barefoot only to be reminded by parents or older siblings to put on their shoes or sandals - afraid that their little feet would get hurt or become dirty. If you observe children, you will find in them a natural desire to walk barefoot. This desire is there is some adults too. So you find some people walking barefoot inside their homes. However, most of us are used to home slippers at home and our choice of footwear when we leave home.

It's so important to connect to nature. We are all so much an integral part of it and why not try out the different feel and benefits of walking barefoot on sand when you go to the beach. Try walking on the dry sand. It's a different feel compared to walking on bare ground. You can feel your feet go deep into the sand, as you walk,  a lovely feeling. This is a good exercise, that strengthens calf and foot muscles. It's very relaxing and soothing too, actually quite therapeutical. According to a book called 'Earthing'  by Martin Zucker, you would experience the flow of the earth’s electric energy connecting to your physical body, which has been scientifically proven to promote healing and create a deep sense of well-being within us, when we walk barefoot. It's called 'Grounding'. Connect directly to earth through your barefoot and enjoy the health benefits, all for free offered to us by earth.!
