Earthing: Why kicking off your shoes and walking barefoot on the earth is good for your health and wellbeing

I was reminded today was Earth Day so I thought I’d do a bit of a throw back to March last year when I posted the video below on Earthing. 

Earthing, also called grounding, it’s a really simple technique some claim can help with reducing stress, improving your sense of health and wellbeing, and feeling more positive.  There’s also ongoing research into how it can help with reducing inflammation and pain.

It kind of makes sense really.  Our feet have so many nerve endings in them, and all of them are working to tell our brain where ‘we’ are (also called proprioception) and how we are interacting with our environment.  

By wrapping them up in shoes and socks and only walking barefoot inside, we’re depriving our brain from some really important information, and a really important connection with the earth.

So why not give it a try?  It’s so easy to do – just kick off your shoes and socks, get barefoot and get walking, and reconnect with the earth!

Have a great weekend!

Much love, Sarah x
