Walking barefoot is considered one of the best methods of relaxation, for this intense feeling- away from the brains- makes for a great counterbalance to modern overflow in our heads.
We can again feel everything around us, from the centre of our bodies. Afterall, taking your shoes off is not good only for your feet, but also for your spine, blood presure and veins. It is very recomendable for children. Walking barefoot enable us a direct connection with the ground, enhances blood circulations and improves imune system. During walk we stimulate the parts of brain that coordinate senses, feelings, thoughts and centres for associative thinking.
