“What on earth (pun intended) is that?” you may ask.
Grounding or earthing is placing your bare feet onto the ground, whether it be grass, dirt, sand or concrete. The key is making the connection between the earth and you.
“You want me to get my feet dirty?” you may say.
Absolutely! Getting your feet dirty for a small portion of your day immediately makes you ‘feel better’. If you set aside time to ground every day, you will reap a life time of benefits such as:
– Reduced stress
– Improved immune function
– Improved digestion
– Improved sleep
– Rapid healing of injuries
– Improved blood circulation
– Reduction of inflammation
– Reduced electrosensitivity
Basically, grounding works like this:
“Your immune system functions optimally when your body has an adequate supply of electrons, which are easily and naturally obtained by barefoot contact with the Earth.
Research indicates that electrons from the Earth have antioxidant effects that can protect your body from inflammation and its many well-documented health consequences. For most of our evolutionary history, humans have had continuous contact with the Earth.
It is only recently that substances such as asphalt, wood, rugs, and plastics have separated us from this contact.”
Go outside, walk in nature barefoot, breathe in the fresh air and life will become so much simpler!
