I listened to a podcast from NPR about healthy feet and plantar fasciitis in which they said that our feet might be healthier if we walk around our houses barefoot. Growing up, I pretty much wore shoes from the time I dressed myself in the morning till I was ready to go to bed. In the past several years, I've walked around the house in my stocking feet quite a bit, but never intentionally as much as incidentally. In Phoenix especially I remove my shoes to be cooler during the summer. When there's no one to be bothered by it, I leave the thermostat between 81 and 84 degrees most of the time, so it's nice to have more air exposure. Now I do it for my health also.
