Way back when I was in college, it was a favorite pastime to go to the local park and walk barefoot.  I loved the feel of the plants on my toes!  Back then, I had never heard of grounding.

I like to dreams about having a walkable area for grounding.  Hey, a girl can dream can't she?

Here are some plants that might be suitable for walking barefoot or surrounding a grounding area.

Creeping Thyme, Thymus serpyllum

This has been on my wish list for a long time and it is drought resistant.

Creeping Veronica, Veronica filiformis

I love the color of the flowers!

Corsican Mint, Mentha requienii

This is pretty.

Snow in Summer, cerastium tomentosum

I love the white flowers that make it look like snow in summer!

Catnip, Nepeta cataria

Cats love this one, too!

Scotch Moss, Sagina Subulata Aurea

I love moss and this would be so nice to walk on.

These are my favorite choices though there are several others to choose from.

These are a few to give you some inspiration and to get you thinking about what are the best ground covers and plants to walk on?

That sounds like great toe therapy.
 
My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
