Walk Off Your Stress… Literally!

Walking has always been a kind of therapy for me. Along with its many health benefits, the simple practice of walking has always grounded me and brought me back to a sense of peace within. Believe me, over the years I have Soul Stepped a million miles! (It certainly feels that way, at least.)

What’s ‘Grounding’ and Why Does It Matter?

When is the last time you walked barefoot on the earth, with your toes touching the soil or sand?

There’s a notion called grounding or earthing in the wellness community that I believe in wholeheartedly. Grounding is simply walking barefoot and feeling a deeper connection to the earth, with the goal of tapping into the earth’s negatively charged ions. To reap the full benefits of this connection, many recommend walking barefoot near or in bodies of water, wet grass, or wet sand.
