One simple tip this week: take off your shoes!
I know, you paid a fortune for them / they’re super-cute / they’re “really actually comfortable.”
But they ain’t your feet and your tootsies know it.
Proponents of minimalist (“barefoot”) footwear call shoes “foot coffins” for a reason: they restrict natural movement, essentially freezing your muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments into a living rigor mortis. Some energy medicine specialists even say they cut you off from the true energy of the earth, preventing any kind of grounding and keeping you disconnected from the planet’s healing energy. Orthopedic shoes and inserts can minimize the “shoe death trap,” but the best solution is just to take ‘em off.
Wiggle your toes, do some ankle circles. Set your feet free.
