Reconnect with nature
For me, taking my shoes off and consciously choosing to slow down to walk barefoot in nature, in often unfamiliar territories, helps create the spaciousness in my mind and body that helps me top up my feel good feelings, in a really grounded way – and quickly.
Yes, I have to avoid those stones, shards of glass and even the odd doggie doo doo but, in doing so, I feel connected, present, relaxed and better able to face the rest of my day in an even more positive way and if it’s nearly sunset time, I know I’ll get an even better night’s sleep.
Why not try it and see what happens to your sense of wellbeing? Ignore the funny looks you might get for returning to a natural state of being and instead stay focused on keeping your feet safe, one step at a time. It might just be a helpful health game changer ☺
Here I am, on the Preseli Hills, the day after twisting my ankle (in my lovely smart long boots). The swelling disappeared 24 hours later after this, along with some sound therapy and CBD oil lovingly massaged in.
