In short, earthing or grounding is putting the body in direct and uninterrupted contact with the earth. Remember being a little kid, running barefoot? You felt so free! But unfortunately, those experiences become few and far between as we grow up. As adults, we always wear shoes outside the house —so our feet rarely touch the ground. Modern life is designed to keep us from having direct contact with the earth.
Take a look at this cute video - it explains it perfectly!
Research is continually mounting on how much grounding can do for you, and let’s say the benefits are eye-opening!
If you’re struggling to sleep, consider that grounding can result in improved sleep (which can positively affect your energy, while warding off depression, anxiety, and other issues connected to insomnia). And when you’re awake, grounding can help reduce inflammation—which can cause or aggravate everything from chronic disease to premature aging.
(Research suggests that grounding can even reduce pain, stiffness, swelling, redness, and other signs of inflammation following an injury caused by strenuous or unfamiliar exercise.)
I have personally seen amazing results by connecting with nature and using grounding products within my own home.
