Why do people call me a hippie? Well, for about a zillion and a half reasons. For one, I cloth-diapered my kids the vast majority of the time. I also babywear. And buy organic foods from farmer's markets. And love classic rock. And I use natural and holistic remedies whenever possible. And essential oils. Oh, and we cannot leave out the fact that I own a tie-dye purse. Yep. I am a hippie, through and through!
One thing I have always believed in is staying grounded, and fully connecting to the earth and things around you. Taking a moment to just exist, take in the beauty that surrounds you, and just feel gratitude and peace. In today's fast-paced, crazy world, it's so easy to become disconnected, mentally, physically, and spiritually. With 2 preschoolers and a teenager, there are moments that I definitely allow stress to cause a disconnect in my life.
Since I am always looking for ways to stay more connected and balanced, the whole concept of Juil footwear really intrigued me. You see, these are no ordinary shoes. They're specifically designed to help create balance in your life.
If we stay connected, these electrons are absorbed to neutralize and release the harmful free radicals in our bodies. While the easiest way to stay grounded is to walk barefoot, that’s not always possible, fashionable, or appropriate. Most footwear insulates our bodies from making a connection with the earth, but the copper “dots” in our sandals act as a conduit and allow you to stay truly connected and balanced."
Pretty cool, right? And if you stop and think about it, it really does make sense! It's all about "synching energies" and maintaining a physical contact with the Earth, therefore helping to alleviate stress and inflammation.
Our Review of the Juil Kilimanjaro :
When our sandals arrived, the very first thing I noticed was how fancy that presentation was! The shoe box was very attractive, and opened with a fabric pull tab rather than a traditional lid. I know...Sounds like a silly thing to point out, but I really appreciate special little touches and a lil extra flair!
Inside the box were the masculine Kilimanjaro sandals, as well as a soft, satiny carrying bag and a Juil notepad and literature. Talk about extra touches! I was absolutely thrilled by the extra goodies included!
I would definitely recommend checking out Juil sandals. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by just how comfortable and well-made these shoes are. These would be especially wonderful for any winter time vacations like cruises, Hawaii, DisneyWorld, etc! Or, if you live places warmer than Ohio, they would be great for everyday wear!
