Feet Like a Cat

Feet Like a Cat

Our feet are built to be dextrous.

They are designed to be able to sense the ground, and make shapes on the ground that give you a good base of support in whatever you are doing, and whatever surface you are on.

However, we often don’t give our feet much attention.  And it seems we rarely set them free to do what they CAN do.   Instead, we stuff them into shoes, and kind of ignore them… until and unless they start to hurt.

Compare this to how cats seem to use their feet… how light they are on their feet, and how much they use their feet to sense the world.  They move so beautifully and powerfully on their feet!

This video offers two simple and fun tips to help your feet become more enlivened, stronger, and healthier… kind of like having Feet like a Cat! 🙂

These are things you can do every day.  You can do this in your home, or out walking on a beach, or anywhere where you can spend just a few minutes in bare feet.

Your feet – and quite possibly your whole body (which is carried around on top of those feet, eh!) – may really wake up and feel quite different, simply by doing these two things.


Happy exploring –
