Grounding, also known as earthing, is a wonderful way to connect more with nature. When you are grounding, you typically touch physically with the Earth’s surface, like sand at the beach, the ocean, the dirt, and the grass. It is an amazing part of living naturally, and so easy to do.

Understanding What Grounding is

Let’s start by becoming more familiar with what grounding actually is. Grounding is often called earthing because you are spending more time with direct physical contact with the earth. It doesn’t have to be your feet, though that is more common. Any time your skin touches the earth, you start enveloping those negatively-charged electrons. It is such an amazing way to relax, reduce anxiety, reduce stress, and improve other important body systems.

Easy Ways to Add Grounding to Your Life

It is actually really easy to start grounding or earthing on a regular basis. The best and easiest way to do it is by going outside in bare feet. Of course, you want to do this safely. Check the area first before you take your shoes off. Some different areas to go barefoot include in the grass, in dirt, or in the sand at the beach. Going camping? Ditch your shoes when you find a bare spot of ground that looks safe to stand on.

You can also submerse your body in natural forms of water, such as a lake or the ocean, as well as just lying down on the grass at a park. These are easy ways to get more grounding, relax, and live a more natural lifestyle by being one with nature and the earth.
