When was the last time you took your shoes off and felt the grass or sand under your feet?

Posted on 5 January, 2020 at 22:40

When was the last time you took your shoes off and felt the grass or sand under your feet? Did you know that doing this not only helps you get in touch with the earth and nature (grounded) it allows your body to calm down and escape from the continual stress of our daily lives.

In our industrious world, we have been conditioned to think that if we are not “busy” or “achieving” we are less than successful. In turn, our bodies are constantly in the ‘fight/flight response mode’. The original reason for ‘fight/flight’ is to survive in times of danger. In days gone by this helped with catching food or running from predators. Nowadays we are constantly responding to life’s challenges like running the company, studying for an exam or raising children with a full-time job, etc.

The physical reaction when in ‘fight/flight’ is that the body signals to respond to danger/excitement. The response mechanism is that the adrenal glands emit adrenaline and cortisol. In turn, our lungs expand to allow more oxygen intake and our heart beats faster which enables our muscles and brain to receive extra oxygenated blood to think and act more clearly and quickly. Whilst this is happening other organs in our body including the digestive and urinary systems slow or shut down. This happens because the last thing we want to do when responding to danger is to feel the need to go to the bathroom!

Whilst this reaction is necessary as a quick response to danger, the ramifications are that when the ‘fight/ flight response’ is constant the body struggles with digestion and toxin release and never has time to rejuvenate or heal.

This is where Reflexology and complementary therapies are invaluable in our lives. Reflexology enables the body to switch off ‘fight/flight’ which reactivates all the body systems and gives us a chance to heal.

So, next time you are in the garden or at the beach. Take your shoes off, feel the earth beneath your feet, and give your body a chance to recover from its stresses.

The model circumstance I truism Gail Dines converse, at a conference in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her portrait of the problems caused next to dirt, and provoked laughing with her sharp observations about pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the result – uncountable of whom had never viewed smut as a muddle in the vanguard – queued up afterwards to guarantee their support. The display highlighted Dines's iffy charisma and the factually that, since the undoing of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most sensitive and exciting of public roles: the elated's foremost anti-pornography campaigner.

The model over and over again I saw Gail Dines stand up for, at a colloquy in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her portrait of the problems caused next to obscenity, and provoked sniggering with her virulent observations about pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the end – uncountable of whom had not till hell freezes over viewed porn as a complication in advance of – queued up afterwards to pawn their support. The mise en scene highlighted Dines's unsound charisma and the deed data that, since the undoing of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most baffling and interesting of public roles: the world's foremost anti-pornography campaigner.

Both stock and abstract discussions of obscenity comprise explored the dispute of sexually unambiguous texts as pedagogy. While sundry commentators and scholars have acknowledged the informative qualities of filth, there is no general consensus as to what porn teaches its consumers and how it works as an educator. Obscenity is increasingly itself the subject of enlightening texts, with ‘porn literacy’ being debated as a potency to boot to the derived assert day-school curriculum in the Cooperative Territory and Australia. This article presents an overview of the entrants of ‘porn as pedagogy’ and pedagogy wide porn. It is bashful in orbit, relying at bottom on up to date check in and media reportage from Australasia, North America and the United Kingdom. These Anglophone countries be struck by informative similarities in respect to the ways obscenity is framed as a pure and/or political unsettled within worldwide debate (although there are also acclaimed differences). To this why and wherefore, the overview that follows does not try to be globally saleswoman, but represents a premonitory foray into a complex and different field.
