There’s an easy, much-studied way to do yourself well….
Take off your shoes! That’s right, walking barefoot…also known as Earthing….can have a bounty of beneficial health effects.
“Your nervous system is especially sensitive in your feet…. And people don’t even realize that the nerves there age. The more we wear shoes, we take away that information between the feet and your brain. That’s why it’s important to be barefoot and stimulate your nervous system in that way.”
“a handful of small studies have found that grounding appears to provide some general health benefits, such as better sleep, less pain, reduced stress and tension, and better immune function compared to study participants who weren’t grounded.”
And Laura Koniver, MD conducted a 10 week study examining the relationship between earthing and weight. Participants were asked to touch the earth for a minimum of 15 minutes a day on a daily basis for 10 weeks. 100% of the participants reported: 1. increasing their activity level over all 2. significantly reducing stress levels in their lives and 3. normalizing their appetite/reducing craving. Interestingly, the participants with pain issues had their pain issues resolve, and the participants with no pain issues were the ones that lost weight!
