TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, March 25, (PIA)--Over 70 slippers for deprived children, this sums up the slipper pool which a Holy Name University (HNU) club and class intends to hand over within the next few days to beneficiaries they could identify. 

HNUs Students for the Environment, Education and Development (SEED) members had to save a few from their meager allowance to buy an extra pair of slippers, while the school's class on tourism impacts and sustainability also pitched in to make the life of a kid more memorable, even if for a bit. 

In its annual activity to cap a semester, SEED members and tourism students put on their slippers and joined in a "walk to remember," a walk for a cause which they hold regularly. 

It's a commitment to the environment, to the community and to ourselves, a SEED member said when asked what he intends to get in joining the Saturday afternoon event March 14. 
What is not regular during the recent activity was that the students had to ascend Banat-i Hill and in portions of the climb, take off their slippers in an attempt to reconnect with the earth. 

The initiative to reconnect with the earth is consistent with a healthy lifestyle trend called "earthing," where man attempts to reestablish his body's balance which has been disconnected from the earth and ground it back. 

An earlier lecture sharing on Earthing happened at the HNU AV Hall where speakers impress the disconnection. 

"Throughout time, humans have sat, stood, strolled, and slept on the ground – the skin of their bodies touching the skin of the Earth," a sharer said. 

And throughout time, such contact served as a conduit for transferring the Earth’s natural, gentle negative charge underfoot into the body, he continued to explain the possible source of imbalance which makes man more vulnerable to illnesses.

But modern lifestyle however has disconnected man from the earth, the usual grounding could not happen when it is hampered by thick soled rubber shoes, non-earth conductor clothing and fast paced life.

Scientists and Earthing practitioners noted that contact with the Earth, appears to uphold the electrical stability of bodies and serve as a foundation for vitality and health, thus the need to re-connect anew.

For all this, SEED members and tourism students under professor Emmylou Palacio-Noel did their little share of the walk to help needy kids, impress their position of environment protection as well as reconnect with the earth. (rac/PIABohol)
