From the Big Give

In order to change it up and hopefully get some more participation, May's Big Give is a suggestion that is completely free, easy to do and could improve health and reduce stress. Believe it or not, there are new studies being performed that show the healing powers of being connected directly to the earth by walking barefoot. There is even a name for it -- earthing. The earth has a natural electrical charge that can act as a powerful anti-oxidant throughout the body. The body is also a conductor of electricity. So this month, I am asking you to spend 20 minutes, 2 times per week walking barefoot. Take your family to the beach and walk barefoot in the sand or go for a barefoot walk in the park. Spend some time without your cell phone or blackberry and just connect with whoever you are with and whatever you are doing. Take 20 minutes for your health and sanity.

I know this is a change of pace for my monthly email and a few of you will think I have gone off the deep end but what can it hurt. Nothing. In fact, if you dont want to do it, please make a small donation to your favorite charity.
