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

Some studies have found that kicking off your shoes and “landing” may have more benefits than you think. However, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional first, as it is not a substitute for medical interventions or therapy.

We have put together a list of the benefits that “grounding” has on your mind, body, and soul.

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 they can also recharge us in the same way.

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

It can ease menstrual cramps.

Since going barefoot can help with all kinds of pain, it’s no surprise that it can also help with menstrual cramps. Going out without shoes can do wonders for your mind, body, and soul.

And while there are plenty of pain relievers out there for women with cramps, grounding doesn’t really have any side effects.

You may tolerate stressful situations better.

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

Grounding can result in less fatigue and exhaustion, and you’re more likely to be calm in tough 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 control their stress levels. You can help your children to be mentally strong. Spending time barefoot on grass, or even cement, for 10 minutes at a time is ideal for seeing these benefits.

Also, putting your feet in the wet sand and water at the beach can be the best way to impart energy from the earth, so it’s time to have a beach day with your kids!

It has anti-ageing effects.

Women who are landing often have a slightly pink face due to increased blood flow to the capillaries; this is similar to the face of a child running around the playground in the summer. Even 1 hour of barefoot contact with the earth can improve skin tissue repair and improve facial appearance.
