5. Barefoot running

Naturally, our feet are made in such a way that they are apt for running. During the early man days, feet helped men to run away from predators and disasters. But today, more and more people get hurt because of running. Do you know why? Well, this is because of the shoes. But running barefoot may be a problem, especially in urban areas as you might get hurt due to glass, stones etc. Therefore, we wear shoes that might cause troubles, shock, leg and back injuries. This is because shoes have altered the way we run. They encourage us to run on heel to toe. But actually running is on the ball and lateral edge of the foot. This way shock gets absorbed and spreads through entire body, rather than focused on a single area. So, you can run barefoot or with socks. In case, this isn’t viable, then use five fingers shoe, which is like a glove.
