What is Grounding?

Did you know that increasing your connection with the earth can lead to a happier, healthier life? In the modern world, we spend so much time indoors and very little time connecting with the earth’s energy. Grounding is a way to re-establish your relationship with the earth and experience the benefits it has to offer. Grounding isn't just a buzzword; it's a scientifically proven method for nurturing your mind and body.

How it works

Grounding is a technique that involves connecting to the earth's energy by touching it with bare feet or hands to help improve your overall well-being. According to an article by Health.com, grounding works by connecting your body, which has a slightly positive charge, with the earth, which has a slightly negative charge. Connecting your energy with the Earth can help balance it and bring about a variety of health benefits.

The benefits of grounding

What exactly are the benefits of grounding? While grounding is still being researched, it is linked to several benefits for your mental and physical health including:

  • better sleep
  • reduced chronic pain
  • lower blood pressure
  • improved mood
  • less stress 

How to do it

Grounding is very simple and there are several ways to do it. Spending time walking outdoors while barefoot is one of the simplest ways. Swimming in a lake or lying in the sand on the beach are also enjoyable ways to reconnect with the earth. If you prefer to ground indoors, you can spend time in the sunlight, keep indoor plants, practice yoga, or use a grounding mat. There are so many ways to connect with the earth and use all the benefits it has to offer.
