When you’re out and about, try trading your rubber-or plastic- soled shoes for a pair with soft leather soles. Breathable leather allows your body to absorb the earth’s negatively charged ions – enough to slash the body’s production of pain-causing inflammation by a whopping 227%! Plus, these ions help neutralize the free radicals that promote weight gain, cardiovascular disease, and insomnia. Live someplace warm? Get the benefits by walking barefoot on soil, grass, or sand.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
