Our expert says:
It has to do with the way you walk and the type of shoes and clothes you wear - some people have more contact with the floor while walking and if you wear synthetic shoes on synthetic carpets, this builds up static electricity.
You can also use a humidifyer in your office or home as dry air makes this worse. Wear cotton clothes and socks and experiment with wearing different kinds of shoes.
