This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Start Walking Barefoot 5 Minutes Every Day

Walking barefoot was and still is one of the most primal instincts for mankind. By walking barefoot we encounter different advantages that we do not get either at all or almost as much by walking with shoes. One of the more evident advantages of walking barefoot is that we have an association with the earth and its attractive field. Our body is conductive to the earth and the earth is conductive to our body. The earth is loaded with negative particles and we surge our body with negative particles by walking barefoot, this is otherwise called “earthing” or establishing.

We need negative ions,exspecially in today’s reality. Positive particles are more abutant in urban communities and anywhere close electronics and electro-attractive frequencies. Think your mobile phone, portable PC, tablet, TV, wireless towers, microwave and so on. Essentially anything with a force source that radiates a sign, bluetooth, wifi, even hardware that do not emanate a sign still transmit positive particles. Since we live in a world of positive particles and separate ourselves from the world’s normal negative particle field we are flooding our body with pro-inflammatory positive particles brought about by the electronics and gadgets around us.


Earthing is the first and very powerful advantage of walking barefoot, but there are numerous different advantages of this also. Such as:

1. Improving Sleep Quality

Our  predecessors slept on the earth itself or close to the earth. By being grounded (otherwise known as earthing) it relieves tension and uproots positive ions to make way for negative ions. Negative ions are relaxing and help you to improve sleep quality. Ever go swimming in the lake or ocean and slept great that night? Or went swimming in the lake or ocean and walked barefoot on the sand that day? You were earthing in the water and on the sand and you slept better because of the negative ions flowing through your body. I also personally believe that walking barefoot helps to balance your circadian rhythm to give you better awake/asleep conscious awareness. The best rested people on the planet wake up with the sun and go to bed when the sun sets. I think walking barefoot is a subconscious reminder of that ‘natural’ time to wake and sleep.

2. Balance Electrons and Influence The Brain

Our bodies are around 70% water and the more grounded we are in nature the more conductive and alive that water is in our entire body. Walking barefoot helps to create an ionic balance within our cells and tissue. Exercises with the most age and wisdom such as martial arts, yoga and tai chi are all done barefoot, do you wonder why? This helps us wire our brain to be on our feet at all times. When we walk with shoes we don’t “think on our feet” as much because we are somewhat disconnected from our feet. Walking barefoot helps to balance emotional and mental stability and well-being.

3. Develop and Increase Your Senses

Our cavemen ancestors walked on sand, grass, wood and pebbles. Because we wear shoes all the time we miss out on the sensory experiences involved in that process. Our feet when stimulated transmit that information to other ares of the body. There are multiple pressure points and nerve endings on the bottom of our feet that go unstimulated because of shoes. When we remove shoes we open up our sensory would and allow our nervous system to explore more.
When you walk  barefoot you must be more ready, aware and present in this moment in light of the fact that you need to watch where you are walking. It takes strolling intuitively and makes it  conscious again which makes you conscious and present which is a significant blessing. Strolling unshod likewise empowers the nerves and weight focuses on the base of the foot which can help to bring chi vitality (life power, prana, distinctive societies have diverse names for this) to distinctive ranges in the body connected with those weight focuses on the base of your foot.
4. Enhances your overall posture 
Our foot muscles are weaker than ever in recent memory due to shoes and soft surfaces that  don’t cause our feet to be flexible and strong and solid like they once were. This prompts terrible stance on the grounds that we get to be dependent upon different muscles to carry out the employment our feet are in charge of doing. Our weak feet can lead to bad posture which can lead to back pain, neck pain, even knee pain which is actually often caused from shoes that misplace your postural alignment. When we begin to walk barefoot, run, jog and play with just our feet we can begin to strengthen our ankles, feet and toes again which give us better balance, stability and posture.
