The importance of walking barefoot, sometimes, cannot be overemphasized, because making an effort to spend more time barefoot in nature can provide the human body with some amazing benefit.
As a matter of fact, studies have shown that walking with your feet, directly touching the soil, allows your body to absorb negative electrons through the Earth, which helps to stabilize daily cortisol rhythm and create a balanced internal bioelectrical environment.
In other words, the negative ions present in the earth can help balance the positive ions in our body (if we allow contact). And when this happens, it improves our health in many ways.

A study revealed that walking barefoot influences physiologic processes as well as inducing relaxation. It has also been shown that people who had been exposed to grounding have better sleep at night when compared with those who did not walk barefoot regularly.
