Take A Walk On The Grass

Take A Walk On The Grass

When is the last time that you took off your shoes and yours socks and you walked barefoot on the grass.  If you’re older than twelve I’m guessing it has been quite some time.  It’s funny, when we’re kids, if we see a mud puddle we JUMP right in it.  When we become adults we walk around the mud puddle.  Not only do we walk around the mud puddle…we complain about it! 

Stop complaining.  It’s not really serving you.  Start living.  Get outside and re-connect with our planet.  This isn’t some hippy dippy statement.  We (human beings) are electrical beings.  That’s right, we are electrical beings.  Electricity is constantly flowing through our bodies.   In fact, without electricity you wouldn’t be reading this post right now.  Without electricity running through your body your brain would cease to function. 

Sometimes we need to re-charge.  We need to “ground” ourselves.  One of the ways to do this is by getting outside and walking barefoot on the grass.  While you’re walking (barefoot of course) do some deep breathing – you’ll be accomplishing two things at the same time (there is nothing like multi-tasking when it comes to your health).  Walking barefoot on the grass will “ground” you, literally.  Doing this will help you release built up electrical energy that’s in your body.

As stated above, your entire nervous system is run on electrical energy.  Get walking, ground yourself, do your deep breathing, and make some positive changes in your life.  This doesn’t cost you a dime.  What have you got to lose?

Yours In Health!

    Funny enough, my mother who was from the country, taught me to walk in the grass early. Of course I didnt like it. It looked as being so poor. Now I do it in the sand every opportunity I go to the beach. Great post.

    This is something to do daily if possible. Getting out into the forest barefoot is the next step. Even if there were no health benefits, it’s worth losing yourself in the act.

    there is a great deal of scientific and anecdotal evidence that walking bare foot on the sand, grass or dirt is not only calming but greatly benificial to how the body chemically functions.

    What a great suggestion! No wonder I was so happy as a kid. I still love feeling the grass under my feet.

    Hello Gary,

    It is very good to feel nature with bare feet, it is pleasure & beneficial. Europeans (especially Polish people) discovered this a long time ago. To focus on this is a great idea.

    I love being out in the morning when there is a bit of dew on the ground and walking on the grass. My feet are so happy.

    Walking barefoot really is an amazing experience in a world full of shoes and keeping our bodies as far away from the ground as possible.

  18. I LOVE this advice! I walk barefoot whenever and wherever possible. Believe it or not, it’s not been long at all since I’ve felt grass under my feet. The physical connection with the earth is important, as you’ve pointed out, and shouldn’t be underestimated.

  19. Gary,
    great suggestion and good for the energies coming from earth. I know an elderly man in my neighborhood. I see him every morning barefoot, walking and collecting empty bottles. I don’t know if he is homeless or just taking care of the environment, but he looks very healthy for his age.

    Barefoot – my feet LOVE the freedom. The hardest part of going to workis, having to wear shoes. 🙂

    Timely advice. I get teased routinely because I hike in the mountains in moccasins [ “Doesn’t that hurt??”]
    Well, yeah a bit, but the connection is worth it.
    Not barefoot but close.
    Be Well.

    I don’t know if I told you this yet but I was studying something called Sungazing.

    It is supposed to be pretty healthy and I have practiced from time to time.

    to get the best results (And to not burn out your eyes) You are supposed to gaze at the sun with purpose. you do this within 15 minutes of sunrise or 15 minutes before sun down. this is when the sun won’t damage your eyes.

    you start with 10 seconds and then add 10 seconds each day until you are at about 4 minutes.

    Apparently you get a wealth of benefits too long to list.

    One of the major things is contact with the Earth. Barefeet on bare soil is the best.

    Thought I would share in case it sparked an interest.
