I’ve been doing something lately that has helped me to clear my thoughts, feel more content and grounded.
This is something I recommend to other moms and their kids.
And this same technique helps to ease anxiety too. Anyone have anxious feelings sometimes? Or how about anxious kids?
Hot damn! In the world we live in, feeling rushed and anxious has become the norm for many- not a healthy norm, but the norm, none-the-less.
So what the heck is the technique I’ve been using on myself that has helped me a lot?
I take my shoes and socks off and walk in the grass, on the driveway, in the sand or dirt. I do this for at least 10 minutes (or more!)
So what’s the big deal about doing this?
Well, our bodies become affected by the energy of the computers, and cellphones we use, then there’s the lack of being outside and spending the majority of our time inside. There’s our stressful thoughts, chaotic experiences with family or work… On and on.
Each of these things contributes to ‘funking up’ yes, I said ‘funking up’ (never even thought about using the other F word, just felt like using a clever, made- up word! wink, wink!) So back to the point, our energy and bodies are greatly impacted by our environment.
When we take a walk outside and connect with the earth, no shoes, no rubber separating us from the ground, we reconnect with the earth’s energy.
Everything is made up of energy, our earth is no exception. She’s made up of crazy, strong GROUNDING energy. Taking a few minutes to walk around barefoot will allow you to clear out some of that funky energy you’ve been exposed to during the day and realign your body, and even recalibrate your thoughts.
Translation: Feel more relaxed + grounded.
This is also excellent for our kids too!
Even better, have the entire family get outside without your shoes on, and watch what happens after doing this for awhile- you will all begin to feel better.
So simple + yet so helpful!
It’s the perfect time of the year to go outside without shoes on!
Here’s to wiggling your toes in the sand, garden + driveway!
I’m excited to get my tootsies outside right now! Wink, wink!
