Get Grounded

Get Grounded

Let’s face it: the hustle and bustle of our daily lives can sometimes lead us to feel a little overwhelmed. The culture of the Western world has been set up to often leave our bodies in a state of stress. Finding ways to recenter and get grounded is important to combat its serious negative side effects. We’ve put together a few ways to help you achieve this state.

Earthing - This one may sound a little woo-woo, but research has shown that physically getting your bare hands and feet in direct contact with the Earth can be very beneficial.
  • Has been shown to reduce inflammation with injuries.
  • Helps improve sleep
  • Regulates cortisol rhythm and helps keep you in a parasympathetic (rest) state
  • Reduces feelings of pain
  • Improves blood flow
  • Increases energy levels

Can direct contact with the earth do all that? How?
The electrons from the ground can spread over your body upon contact to have healing effects. Think of it this way: any structure or building needs a strong foundation in the earth to provide stability. Humans are no different. All that’s required to receive the benefits is to go outside and quite literally touch the ground for a sustained period of time.

Grounding Mats - Many of us have lifestyles that require us to be indoors, so getting outside isn’t always possible. That’s where tools like a PEMF Mat come in handy. Tools like this connect directly to the earth’s magnetic field for a full body reset.

Sunlight Exposure - A great habit to get into is to get direct sunlight exposure as soon as you wake up. This small, daily ritual helps your body reduce its natural melatonin levels to get you feeling energized and ready for your day. It also helps regulate your circadian rhythm.

Our lives can be stressful. There’s no getting around that. What’s important is what actionable steps you can take to combat the effects of our daily stressors. Finding ways to ground ourselves is crucial to our physical and mental well-being. Get outside and feel the earth. You just may find yourself at more peace than you ever have before.
