Grounding: A Natural Way To Release Stress

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

When was the last time that you actually went barefoot to feel the ground? Most people would probably think that the ground is too “dirty” to walk on and avoid it as much as possible. Wearing footwear is a trend nowadays but, if we think back, humans never really wore any footwear before.

Let’s try to dig deeper on this natural way of connecting to our earth.

What Is Grounding?

Grounding, also called earthing, helps us get back to a neutral, balanced state when we make direct contact with the ground. The negative ions from the earth gets absorbed by our bodies neutralize the free radicals that are responsible for the degradation of our body. We acquire free radicals from our modern lifestyle of being exposed to pollutants, processed foods and many more.

When we connect with the earth, we put ourselves back into sync with the healthy energy from the ground.

Health benefits

Less Stress and Anxiety. Grounding tends to improve heart rate which can lower stress and reduce anxiety¹. This can lead to lower risks of depression.

Going barefoot is a natural thing to do!

Stronger Heart. Grounding can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease² for it can naturally thin the blood and reduce inflammation. No more heart attacks!

Improve Sleep. Grounding while sleeping contributes to better sleep by lowering night-time levels of cortisol³ or the stress hormone. This means that you can enjoy having high-energy levels all throughout the day.

Anti-Aging. Grounding can give us access to the electrons of the earth which may be the best antioxidants¹. It gives us a stronger immune system, improves tissue repair and reduce inflammation. What makes it better is, it’s absolutely free!

How To Get Grounded?

Grounding on the beach? Why not?

There is no “right way” to do grounding. It’s a natural thing for us to do. We were born barefoot so, it’s not that strange to do it even if you’re an adult. To get started, just kick off your shoes and feel the ground. Grounding seems to work more effectively on wet surfaces for greater conduction. You can casually take a stroll alongside the beach or enjoy a nap on the lovely grass. If you do some gardening, forget the gloves and use your bare hands to feel the dirt.

Doing it regularly would leave you healthier and more energized. If you want to do some indoor grounding, there are some grounding mats and grounding footwear available on the market.
