Health benefits of walking barefoot

 

Decreases anxiety & depression

Researches have shown that walking barefoot in the grass can help decrease anxiety and depression by 62 percent. It also increases the levels of endorphins in your body that helps you feel calm by relieving stress and pain.

 

Serves like foot yoga 

One of the best benefits of walking barefoot is that this exercise strengthens and stretches the muscles and ligaments in your feet, ankles and calves. This leads in prevention of knee strain and back problems. It also helps  to keep your posture upright.

Researches have also shown that walking can increase the surface charge of red blood cells. This later causes reduction of clumping in the cells, which therefore decreases blood thickness. Studies have clarified that high viscosity has been directly linked as a risk factor in heart disease.Walking therefore reduces the risk of heart disease.
