The return to childhood

Every kid have somewhere along his childhood, walked barefoot into a puddle after summer rain. We all did this, and it was fun standing with bare feet
in the puddle, feeling the cool water between the toes, and enjoying the refreshing cool water that were cooling you off on a hot humid day.

I have returned to those days – no I am not a kid again (I wish I was), but while in the park in the early morning, for my barefoot walk on grass, before I go to work, the parking lot had quite a few puddles from the rain that night, and I did not think twice, and walked into those cool refreshing water, with bare feet. I got lost in the wonderful feeling, and was almost late to work.

These were wonderful few minutes, going back to times where I could do this and no one will pay any attention (except my Mother), no one asked me where are my shoes, no one said it isn’t good for me, and my feet were happy feet.

This week end it will rain again in my town, and I will be in the park, looking for more of the same, returning again to the good old times.

Barefoot on morning grass

I now have a new routine every morning, to start my bare feet exercise.
I leave home about 15 to 20 minutes earlier then normal, and drive to the park near by.
It is a small park, and the ground is very uneven, with ups and downs, tree roots above ground, and some rocks and tree stumps.

I go there, and just take a 15 minutes morning stroll barefoot, it wakes me up, the wet grass feels real good on my soles, and between my toes,
And it starts my day on a good note. Once done, I have a small towel in my car, and I dry my feet, so I do not put them wet, into the darn shoes & socks which I have to wear for work.

I intend to do this everyday (if possible), as I enjoy it very much, and it takes all the worries away, refreshes me, and a delightful way to start the day.

Hope others would try this, and enjoy it the same as I do.

Happy barefooting

Barefoot education

I was talking to a colleague of mine at work, he is diabetic, and is injecting insulin every day. He was telling me that his feet hurt when wearing shoes and as soon as he takes the shoes off, and walks barefoot, the pain goes away. This guy knows me, and seen me in the supermarket barefoot, and he tried to tell me it’s illegal to walk barefoot in stores, and it’s against the health department regulations.

My answer to that was first to warn him, that with diabetics, he has to be very careful regarding walking barefoot, and it is not recommended that he does that other then at home. The second thing I told him was that it is NOT illegal to walk barefoot anywhere, also drive with bare feet, and the health department has no regulations regarding customers walking with bare feet – it’s a myth which store owners want you to believe because they are not educated, or have something against bare feet.

This is a person who, if it was not for his diabetics, would be walking barefoot and enjoy what we enjoy by doing so. It is a shame that he can not do so.

If you have a friend that is healthy, but his shoes hurt him, explain to him / her that there is no laws or regulations against walking barefoot, anywhere and everywhere.
He might just thank you for this, and decide to try it, to get rid of his foot pain.
