Barefoot Running Research: Why You Should Run Barefoot (even occasionally) Several years ago when I started to see sneakers with webbed feet (Vibram Five Fingers) and hear of people running barefoot, I thought it was ridiculous. Today I have a different perspective, however, because the amount of barefoot running research supporting the benefits of barefoot running is compelling. The photo comparison below highlights the impact of wearing tight fitting and heavily padded sneakers and shoes. Notice in the photo on the left how the man’s feet have conformed to the shape of his shoes with his toes scrunched together and feet narrowed. The photo to the right of a man who walks barefoot has a “fanning” of the toes. Can you imagine the implications of running, or playing sports with feet like those on the left? Below is an infographic from my friends at XRay Technician Schools that highlights some of the issues of running with sneakers (still a very controversial issue) and describes the benefits of barefoot running.

6 Ways To Become Incredibly Sexy Want to know the biggest secret about your authentic sex appeal? It's determined by you. That's right. But when you don't feel sexy, well … I hate to say it … then others won't see you that way, either. One of the biggest mistakes people make in relationships is that we expect another person to make us feel how we don't feel on our own. For example, you want a man to make you feel sexy (because you don't feel sexy), or you want a woman to make you feel hot (because you don't feel hot). Until you feel sexy, attractive and appealing as you are, then it's impossible for another person to make you feel this way for an extended period of time. While there's nothing wrong with wanting to be desired by another person — in fact, it's completely normal and beautiful to feel this way — it's important to understand that how others experience you is 100% related to how you experience yourself. With that, here are six simple ways for you to connect to your natural, sensual, sexy self. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
