Also known as earthing, grounding is a therapeutic technique that involves getting barefoot on the ground in nature to electrically reconnect you to the earth.
Grounding has been found to benefit your mind, body, and spirit. It is a process of absorbing the earths free flowing electrons from the ground through the soles of your feet. – Your body's electrical system's conductivity gains a charge from the energy force within the earth's surface.
Grounding charges your body's proverbial batteries!
Many of us living in the world today find ourselves moving from home, to work, to shops, to venues... But how often are we taking time out to just be one with nature? Getting outside and spending time on the earth, barefoot and fancy free, this is something many of us enjoyed as children... running around and playing, not thinking about life, but just living it in all its glory with our tiny feet dug deep into the grass, the dirt, the sand, the waves. We were charging our immune systems and we didn't even know it!
As adults, we lose touch with that playful side of ourselves, we get zoomed in on our careers, our family life, our goals, our next agenda... It's important for our health, our mindset, our spirits, to be disconnected from the hustle and bustle and take time out to get grounded.

So what about you? When was the last time you put your feet directly on the earth - not the sidewalk, or your back deck, not the driveway, or your patio... but on the earth itself - nature / grass / ocean / streams / beaches / mountains / trails. When have you last disconnected with life so you can connect the life within you on a higher level, more energized, more powerful, more relaxed, more resilient... MORE GROUNDED.
