What if you could “plug in” to the energy of the earth and power your body with it? For eons, humans did that. They charged their bodies and reset their circadian rhythms by walking on the ground. They also restored energy-depleting imbalances by sleeping on the ground.
The earth is like a giant floating battery that carries a net negative charge. And thanks in part to heavy use of electronic devices our bodies often have too much of a positive charge.
We can balance ourselves by grounding to the earth.
Your feet have some 1,300 nerve endings per square inch. So spend some time walking barefoot in the grass and see how good you feel. The health benefits are many, and they are significant
Why Grounding Works
Grounding, or “earthing” as many call it, requires your bare skin to be in direct contact with the earth. This skin-to-ground contact restores a negative charge to the body. This charge seems to stabilize it, bringing it back to its natural electrical state. It also means the body can regulate itself and heal more efficiently.
The Earthing Institute cites almost two dozen studies on the health effects of grounding. These effects include improvements in inflammation, stress and cortisol levels. They also include improvements in mood, circulation and wound healing.
Here are 3 ways to recharge your battery with earth energy:
Tip #1: Ditch the beach chair - To soak up that earth energy, sun your body with your skin in contact with the sand. So push the towel aside!
Tip #2: Party on the patio. Concrete is an excellent transmitter of negative earth energies. Just make sure it's not painted or stained and that it's in direct contact with the ground. When you're relaxing on your porch, kick off your shoes and dance the night away.
Tip #3: Drink up. Be sure you are getting enough water. A hydrated body is a better conductor of the earth’s energy.
