|My new happy feet.|
As an art therapist, I am always looking for new ways to help my clients ground themselves. By ground, I mean feel connected to themselves, others and the world around them. Trauma disconnects us from our sense of belonging.
Any exercise or movement that uses our lower body helps us feel grounded. Running is a great way to feel grounded physically (feet on the ground), mentally (thinking about your legs and movement), emotionally (feeling alive, free and happy), and spirituality (feeling connected to nature).

I just bought some five fingers running shoes. They feel like heaven on my feet! It is almost like running barefoot. What a great way to feel grounded as your foot touches the earth. Their revolutionary design makes feet healthier by allowing them to move more naturally and freely. These shoes stimulate all 26 bones, 33 joints, and 20 muscles in our feet. If you get a chance, try these great shoes!
