Weekend wanderings…

I’m a big believer in taking off your shoes, putting your feet in the grass, and feeling the ground. It instantly helps me feel more grounded.

Water and pebbles work too. We spent some time this weekend working on what we call our “summer feet”.

 I loved this article from the Huffinton Post, with a tip for staying grounded.

“When you’re feeling off balance, see if you can feel your feet from your feet.”

The point is – get out of your head, check in with your feet, and check in with the rest of your body. Stay in the moment.

In this way “we can more easily stay grounded in the experience of the moment and not get knocked off balance by what our minds might be THINKING about the experience.”

Or in the words of Friedrich Nietzsche, “He who would learn to fly one day, must first learn to stand…”


What do you think? Too kooky?

Try it. Kick off your shoes and feel the grass. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
