When is the last time you went barefoot? We currently live in a time where children (and adults) wear shoes most of the time. We’ve moved away from the joys and health benefits that being barefoot brings. Benefits of barefoot rebounding also figure into the “ditch the shoes” movement we want to start!
Being at one with nature means trodding the ground without shoes. When we were children, chances are the soles of our feet were as “tough as shoe leather” because once summer vacation started, we kicked off our shoes and didn’t put them back on until September and school started again.
Because we are always wearing shoes, our feet can no longer cope with climbing on rocks, stepping on pebbles or thorns or managing to walk on a hot sidewalk or road.
Benefits Of Barefoot Rebounding
We always recommend barefoot trampolining because you don’t to damage the surface of your trampoline. Here are other benefits of being barefoot on your in-ground trampoline:
- When you feel the ground beneath your feet you have better balance. Walking barefoot helps your vestibular system — your balance. This is important for senior citizens to help them keep from falling.
- Your health begins with your feet. Diabetics run the risk of many foot issues and those who are overweight are at risk of diabetes. Keeping your feet healthy starts when you’re young and goes throughout your life.
- A little dirt is good for you! When you walk barefoot you are stimulating your nervous system and this can help improve your immunity.
Going barefoot will help strengthen you, enhance your balance and when you’re barefoot on an in-ground trampoline it’s just more fun!
Take off your shoes when you’re on the in-ground trampoline and you will have better balance and will be better able to feel the give and bounce of the trampoline beneath you. You can feel the sun-warmed trampoline beneath your toes and you will be helping your balance as well as your overall health by rebounding.
