Nowadays, there are many material ways to keep yourself feeling and looking young like lotions, creams, etc. But staying young can be much easier and less time-consuming: it can be just walking barefoot in nature.

Some studies have found that taking off your shoes and “grounding yourself” may have more benefits than you might think. However, it is advisable to consult a health professional first, as it is not a substitute for medical interventions or therapies.

We have compiled a list of the benefits that grounding brings to your mind, body, and soul.

Walking Barefoot: Health Benefits

It can help prevent insomnia.


Walking barefoot, also known as grounding and earthing, can improve sleep and increase your energy levels. Our earth has many electrons that recharge the earth and water, and can also recharge us in the same way.

If we are not physically connected to the earth, our important functions become unbalanced, leading to inflammation and disease. When we are sick, we feel pain and this often interferes with sleep.

You may tolerate stressful situations better.

Since walking barefoot can help with all kinds of pain, it’s no surprise that it also helps with menstrual cramps.

Going out without shoes can do wonders for your mind, body, and soul. And while there are plenty of pain relievers for colicky women, grounding doesn’t really have any side effects.

It can help your kids grow mentally strong.

Just as the vitamin D in our body is produced by the energy and frequencies generated by the sun, the ground we walk on sends energy and frequencies to our body. Walking barefoot can improve your mood, you can feel more energetic, and you can tolerate stressful situations much better.

Grounding can result in less fatigue and exhaustion, and you are more likely to remain calm in difficult situations.

It can help your kids grow mentally strong.

Letting your kids run barefoot in the dirt can help boost their immune systems, get rid of allergies, and manage their stress levels. You can help your children to be mentally strong.

Spending 10 minutes to an hour barefoot on grass, or even concrete is ideal for seeing these benefits. Also, sticking your feet in the wet sand and water on the beach can be the best way to transmit the energy of the earth, so it’s time to enjoy a day at the beach with your children!

It has anti-ageing effects.


Women who are earthing usually turn a bit pink on their faces due to increased blood flow to the capillaries; this is similar to the face of a child running around the playground in the summer.
