Grounding for LIFE!

When I say, “Grounding” am I bringing back childhood memories of being grounded or perhaps, for us parents, something we’ve had to say now and again to our kiddos? Well, No, I’m actually talking about Grounding, also known as Earthing. It can be the basis of restoring our health and vitality.

This concept, of course, is something that has been done since the beginning of time. The practice involves the connection between our body to the Earth’s surface energy by standing, walking, sitting or even sleeping outside. Grounding actually changes our bodies physiology at the cellular level. You can also use a grounding mat while indoors to get the same effect. Our body is able to absorb the electrical charges from the earth!

Grounding is a simple concept of us getting back to nature, getting back to our purest energy, and our connection with the Earth.

When you think about it, the further we get from nature and our soul’s connection to its natural healing properties the more health challenges society seems to have. Unlike any time in history, we are being bombarded by electro-pollution and EMF’s. We are affected every minute of every day via cell phones, computers, tv’s, microwaves, electrical appliances, power lines, cell towers.

Grounding brings us back in balance!Grounding

Reactions from grounding can vary from person to person. Some may notice a difference immediately and others may take a few days or even weeks.  In studies, it seems that people with the worst inflammation will notice the biggest difference from grounding.

Benefits of Grounding: Lessens pain and inflammation, Reduces stress, Increases energy, Improves blood pressure, Increases circulation, Helps restore restful sleep, Relieves muscle tension and headaches, Helps adrenal fatigue, Anxiety, and Depression.

Grounding is my new “go to” self-help treatment. I absolutely love it. Every morning I get outside for at least 20 minutes and walk in the grass, it’s energizing and really evokes a sense of peace and centeredness. This is also a great time to soak up that Vitamin D from the sun so you’re going to have compounding health benefits. Grounding is also an important thing to do with our children – they are getting hit with the same type of electro-pollution, maybe even moreso than some adults. (If we want to be healthy, it’s important to look at many different ways to lessen the toxic load our bodies endure each day)

How long does it take? Well, some people report feeling better after just 20 minutes and grounding/earthing research has shown physiological changes and significant improvements in the body’s electrical activity after 30 to 40 minutes.*

The good news is that Grounding is so simple, everyone can do it. Just go outside barefoot and get in the grass, dirt, sand or even concrete (wet).


If you can’t get outside, I recommend grounding mats – there’s many to choose from and you can use it in bed, at the computer, even in the office.  Grounding/Earthing is a simple way to lessen inflammation, help you get more centered, balanced, and another thing you can do to restore or maintain your healthy lifestyle, give it a try right away!
