Go Barefoot and Live a Healthy LifestylePicture this! One evening in early March, you go about the last few minutes before bed planning what you are going to do the next day. You have just pulled off your socks, and barefoot for the first time since the morning, you lay out next to your bed the attire you plan to wear the next day. Some hours later, that alarm on your nightstand goes off and craving those few minutes of extra sleep, you hit the snooze one or two times. Finally after battling with your subconscious, you roll out of bed. You pad over to your sink in your bare feet, and wash up, brush your teeth and proceed to get dressed for the day, putting on that jacket and tie, blouse or dress. The time seems to flash by and you realize that you’d better hit the road.Forgot Your Shoes?You rush out the door and while waiting for the bus or train, or waiting to receive a package at the UPS office, you casually glance around. Your eyes are drawn to the shmorgasborg of footwear that is surrounding you. A pair of running sneakers paired with ankle socks. Next to that a pair of worn out scuffed up work boots flanked by a pair of jeans. A lady wearing a pair of elegant high heel boots with stockings making her legs appear as they were dipped in a bottle of indian ink. As you shift your stance, you feel your toes bend and as soon as your heel lands softly but unimpeded on the cool pavement, you realize that something is quite not right, but at the same time, it is so right.You finally force yourself to look down and much to your shock, that your toes are in plain view and between your bare soles and the ground exists nothing in between. Before you tell yourself to snap out of it – it is only your imagination, something brings you back to reality when the lady beside you asks matter-of-factly, “forgot your shoes?”You look down again and tell yourself that it can’t be. But there are your toes staring back up at you. You feel the pavement underneath get colder as your foot feels the reality underneath. You lift up one foot and turn it in to notice your bare sole, now blackened from having not worn any footwear since the night before. You put your bare foot back down and look around again to realize that all those looks of those around you – some chuckles, some in shock or slight smiles – are fixed on your bare feet – quite a rare sight!Not even a pair of socks or the most minimalist footwear like flip flops – your feet in the raw! You feel like you’re having one of those nightmares where you are naked in the company of everyone around you that is clothed.Chances are you may react by clutching the side of your head in disbelief as you utter – “OMG! I can’t believe I forgot to put on my shoes and socks! How was I barefoot this whole time?!”You are ready to panic and dash home if you are close enough to scramble into your shoes and socks. If you are far from home already, you resign yourself to the fact you’re somewhat naked – stuck in your bare feet while you toggle through your mind looking for first excuse you can find to tell them that you’re going be late for your job or interview – any way to avoid of being seen “GASP” barefoot!Now rest assured, chances are that since putting on footwear before leaving your home is so routine, it is highly unlikely that this will ever happen to you.Let’s say it did, however. Another feeling comes over you. You shrug and smile at those around you as if to say, “hey, look at that. I’m barefoot on a cool winter day!” It could actually be fun and you may relish in the fact that while others are bundled up, their feet separated from the outside world in their shoes and socks, here you are experiencing full freedom by feeling the cool ground underneath your bare feet.I know I do. Many times I’m asked if I forgot my shoes. The question tends to be irrelevant since most of the time I don’t wear shoes or socks at all.Sometimes the answer is yes – since I’m so used to having absolutely nothing on my feet, those seldom occasions where I feel that footwear might make a favorable first impression, I’ll end up anyway forgetting to bring along my footwear and end up coming to my appointments or meetings barefoot.But rather than panicking, I end up being thrilled as I look forward to another day of living a healthy lifestyle in my naturally reliable bare feet and go forward with what I was planning to do for the day.Barefoot as a Healthy LifestyleGuys, how many of you enjoy that feeling of getting home after a long day of work, and kicking off your shoes and peeling off those socks? And ladies in those uncomfortable heels, how great a relief is it to relieve your feet of that constraining feeling as well as peeling off those hose! As soon as your feet are breathing and your bare soles hit the floor or carpet, you feel like a new person, right?Now how about those days when you go to the park or at the beach, you rush to be the first one to ditch your footwear and feel the cool grass under your soles or ocean waves brushing between your toes! Invigorating, right?Now, just imagine experiencing that relief for an entire day. Your heels, arches, and toes are able happily stretch and breath without the constraints of anything on them. No waiting til you get home to bring your feet back to their natural state – bare – after almost ten nonstop hours in the office, or running around. Just imagine that feeling for an entire day. If you can imagine that, imagine being in that blissful state for multiple days at a time?If you haven’t imagined it, no need to worry, I don’t imagine it either since, to begin with I almost never wear any kind of footwear. So rather than using my imagination, I get to live the experience of allowing my bare soles be in contact with every surface uninteruppted 24/7 and live the barefoot healthy lifestyle!Living A Barefoot Healthy LifestyleMany people are realizing the health benefits of going barefoot. There are many articles written, and several health and wellness specialists are highly recommending it.However, although there is a wealth of resources pertaining to the health benefits of bare feet, it seems that most of Western society looks at it as a something unsanitary, uncivilized and unprofessional while the most fashionable shoes, however uncomfortable and constraining they may be for your feet are seen as sophisticated and fashionable.For the person who is educated about the benefits of going barefoot and conscious having healthy feet, unless he lives in a barefoot society, this can actually cost him his livelihood and social life. and it is for this reason that I created this site and named it the Barefoot Healthy Lifestyle.The Barefoot Healthy Lifestyle is more than just about the joys of going barefoot. In this site I provide ideas and examples about how to implement your lifestyle choice. Your lifestyle choice consists of three components:Health – as this site will show you through the careful research of articles and cases, the health benefits of going barefoot far outweigh the benefits of shoes. You will have the knowledge to present to anyone that challenges your lifestyle.Wealth – This is a key determining factor about making your lifestyle choice. We all need to put food on the table, pay our bills and support ourselves and our families. But the question is do we need to sacrifice the things we are most passionate about? This will not bring happiness or even wealth. Wealth is not necessarily about having a ton of money and material possessions. Rather it is about having the freedom of choice how you want to live.Does your work mainly get you by on your daily expenses or are you able to decide on the choice of the lifestyle you want to live.Since I made the choice to be barefoot every minute of the day, I ruled out the option of a corporate 9-5 job carefully researching my other options and finding many that earn way more income than the 9-5 life.In other sections in this site I will delve further about how you can earn a substantial income without having to compromise your lifestyle. If fact after you’ve gone through this site you will have the ability to earn more than the nine to five employee forced to comply with the office dress codeFreedom – Freedom is having the ability to live a lifestyle you want, deal with who you want, where you want and when you want. In living a life based on wages rather then profit, this is next to impossible.Since freeing my feet and living a healthier lifestyle my goal is to help like-minded people achieve the same goals while accumulating wealth so you will never have to comply with someone else’s rules and thus attain the freedom to maintain the lifestyle of your choice!The Barefoot Healthy Lifestyle promotes the pleasure of being barefoot any time and any place you choose. You will learn and teach others how they can live a not only a healthier more prosperous lifestyle – and of their choice!So kick off your shoes, take off your socks, flex those bare feet, wiggle your toes, and experience the joys of the Barefoot Healthy Lifestyle!
You should find it easier to get cheap car insurance quotes online than offline, due to the way that the internet makes it very easier to compare different auto insurers. However, to get the cheapest possible automobile insurance policy available there are factors that you should know about and apply to each company that you approach.The first secret in getting cheap car insurance quotes is to make sure that you provide the same information to every car insurance company. If you do not, then you are not comparing like with like, and the comparison is not a valid one. The easiest way to do this is to check out what each asks for on their online quotation form. Each of the auto insurance companies will provide you with a quotation form to fill in online, and this will contain a number of basic questions. Check out each one and make a note of the questions asked.Then compare them all and make sure that the same information is being provided to each. Thus, if one company asks whether or not your car is garaged overnight, and others do not, then provide that information to these others voluntarily so that you are giving them all the same information. Generally, however, you will find that they are pretty similar, and ask basically the same questions.Write down the answers that you provide in the first auto insurance form you complete, so that you don’t forget and end up providing different information to each company. This is easier to do than you might think and it doesn’t take long to make a note of the answer to each question. Most will be simple to answer, but questions such as how long it has been since you last made an auto insurance claim can sometimes be easy to give different answers to. So write them down: make a list of your answers, and also make a list of factors that you think might help you to get a cheaper auto insurance quote.In fact cheap car insurance quotes online are considerably easier to get if you understand the factors that affect the price, and there is long list of them. The list is too long to cover comprehensively here, but we shall discuss some of those that you should be aware of. The time since your last claim has already been mentioned, and the longer the better. You should get a good no claims discount if it has been at least three years or so since your last claim.However, you must make sure that your facts are correct since if you get it wrong it could be very costly. Your insurance could be invalidated if you exaggerate your claim-free period. The same is true of any of the information you have to provide, which is another compelling reason for making sure that all your facts are correct and compiling everything into a list. That is the best way to make sure that you don’t make any costly mistakes.Another factor in reducing the cost of your car insurance is safety: the more safety features on your car then the lower the auto insurance rates. Most car insurance companies will have a standard price for certain models and years based on the standard safety features, but if you have added something to make it less likely that your passengers will be injured in a collision then your premium could be reduced slightly. Similarly with security features: if your car doesn’t come with an alarm system but you have added one, then you might have something deducted from the price of the insurance.If you are insuring your son or daughter many companies offer cheap car insurance quotes online if you put them on your auto insurance policy rather than buying them a separate policy. You can do this for three or four years and if they have had no accidents then they will eventually be able to get their own policy cheaper.Other factors include whether or not you have your home insurance or your life insurance policies with a particular company: they might be prepared to arrange your car insurance at a lower rate since you are already a customer. Or you could offer to switch your other policies to them if they provide you with a good discount on your car insurance policy. All of these are reasons for auto insurers to reduce their standard car insurance premium price, and we haven’t even talked about the options such as collision coverage and personal injury protection yet, and then there is the deductible that can also be used to lower the cost. Any insuring agreement has to be less costly if you increase your deductible.There are many more factors than the above that will enable you to get the best possible deal, and if you know how to go about it, and are consistent in the information you provide to the various companies, you should be successful. Another secret is to choose the companies that you intend to use carefully and get a cheap car insurance quote from as many as possible. The internet makes it easy to compare a large number of insurers, and you should also be able to get help from price comparison and review sites.If you follow all of this advice then you should not find it difficult to get cheap car insurance quotes online. So fire up that computer and get going – you might surprise yourself and get that uninsured motor vehicle covered at a very low price.
