There was a time when barefoot walking was considered
to be immodest and was frowned upon by people. In fact, watching someone
walking without his/her shoes, or at least slippers, on was bound to
create a negative impression about him/her in other people's mind.
However, this has ceased be the case in the present times. In fact,
today, there is a complete society, called 'Society of Barefoot',
dedicated to the cause of walking barefoot. Have you ever wondered why

In the Children
It has been noticed that people who have walked barefoot in their
childhood encounter much less foot troubles, as compared to those whose
feet were always covered with slippers, sandals or shoes. In other
words, the children who go barefoot, and are allowed to do so by their
parents, have been seen to have lesser foot deformities, greater flexor
strength and more feet agility. At the same time, they are able to
spread their toes to a greater extent than others.
- Irrespective of the extent of care shoes companies take, in
making footwear that suits the shape of human feet, they can never
ever beat the comfort that one gets from bare foot walking. In fact,
those who walk with their shoes on encounter much more aches and
pains in the body, as compared to the people who indulge in home
bare foot walking.
- Barefoot walking helps straighten out the toes of a person. At
the same time, if you walk bare foot, even the lazy muscles of your
feet are prompted to move and develop more, with the result that you
have toned and much stronger foot muscles.
- Another positive effect of bare foot walking, which most of the
people are unaware of, is that it helps the leg muscles pump blood
back to the heart. This makes it beneficial for those who are
suffering from the problem of varicose veins.
- Though most of the people are unaware of the fact, walking
barefoot helps relax tired feet. It has also proven beneficial for
people suffering from flat feet, in many cases helping them overcome
the problem altogether.
- Walking barefoot in the summer season has been found to have a
cooling effect on the body of a person, especially if he/she walks
on morning grass, leaves or a piece of log in the garden.
- In traditional exercises, like yoga, tai-chi and martial arts, it
is believed that being barefoot helps a person absorb Chi, the
life-force energy. As you walk with your feet bare, you increase
your vitality. At the same time, it helps you think clearly and
increases your capacity to work.
- Walking barefoot in your garden or the local park will help you
feel closer to the nature. This will not only take your mind off
everyday tensions and relax your body, but also rejuvenate your mind
and boost your energy levels.
