Walking barefoot reduces stress - in the office and at school
Those who take off their shoes have less stress in life. This is exactly what two different studies claim:
1. Walking for half an hour a day without shoes has a positive effect on well-being
Another study by the California Institute for Human Science has confirmed that people who walk barefoot are generally less stressed : running for 30 to 40 minutes a day without shoes has a positive effect on wellbeing and is also healthy for the feet or the whole holding apparatus. People who walk without shoes are generally less stressed and have less pain.
2. Students have better grades if they don't wear shoes in class
Another 10-year study by the University of Bournemouth found that students behave better and get better grades when they don't wear shoes in class - and that applies to all nations worldwide. The reason given is as follows: The pupils feel more at home and are therefore much more relaxed. They are more relaxed when it comes to difficult tasks.
Ergo: Get out of your shoes! The season begins in spring and many people go barefoot again. Because the feeling of the sole of the foot on the ground, this “grounding”, relaxes and makes you happy - it brings you (again) to the ground. If you want to get a feel for your own feet, you should go barefoot on different surfaces. Especially now in spring it is a good idea to go out without shoes and go for a lap. You don't need a lot of space for this, a small piece of garden is ideal. If you don't have a garden, you can try out the park, because grass is particularly suitable for the first steps without shoes.
And who knows: What starts in your free time may also manifest and continue at some point in the office or at school - more efficient work and better behaviour, because barefoot runners are more relaxed and much less stressed.
