The Best Relaxation Tip You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

dog paw in grassThe Best Relaxation Tip You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

What if I told you there was something you could do free of charge, probably in your own backyard or neighborhood, that would boost your immune system, reduce stress, relax your body and mind and increase feelings of well-being…

Interested?

It’s called Grounding, or Earthing, and while it may seem simple, it’s actually a revolutionary idea given how most of us live our lives today.

We wear shoes, commute by car or subway, and our barefeet rarely touch grass. Unless we are active gardeners, we probably don’t have reason to stick our hands in dirt.

Grounding is a simple process of re-connecting to the energy of the earth’s surface. The theory is that being in direct contact with the ground i.e. walking, sitting or laying down on the earth allows electrons to be conducted into the body, and bringing the body into the same electrical state as the earth. I’m not a scientist and can’t vouch for any proof of this, but I do find laying on the grass in some sunshine one of the most relaxing things I can do.

There are many products on the market – mats and sheets and special shoesΒ – all purported to increase the positive effects of grounding. If you’re skeptical, just go for an old-fashioned barefoot walk in the parkΒ – your body and mind will thank you.

Benefits of Grounding:

  • Pain Relief
  • Anti-Inflammation
  • Reduction in blood viscosity
  • Lowered cortisol levels (stress hormone)

TRY THIS – GROUNDING MEDITATION woman laying in grass

Find a park with a sweet grassy area and lay down a sheet or blanket. Plop down on your back or stomach for 30 minutes.

If on your stomach, rotate after 15 minutes to balance your neck.

Close your eyes. Think about the magnitude of the earth and the tremendous energy below you, supporting your physical body, and your life.

Feel yourself coming into balance with a force much bigger than yourself.
