iExperience – Mindful Barefoot JoyHike, Elends Gorge, Palatinate Forest, 11 km
What are the benefits of walking barefoot?
Some of the science-backed benefits include:
Regulates cortisol, your body’s main stress hormone (better regulation means you recover from stress quickly, instead of having feeling anxious long after the stressful event)
Neutralizes free radicals, which are highly reactive molecules that damage cells
Reduces some risk factors of cardiovascular disease
Shifts the body from the stressed fight-or-flight mode to the restorative rest-and-digest mode
Be aware that if you are not used to walking barefoot you don’t have the necessary calluses to protect your foot. This means that you might need to put your shoes back on after a time or temporarily when crossing a stretch that might be too difficult. You can also participate in this event if you wish to keep your shoes on but the pace will be set by the ones who walk barefoot.
