The earth has a slightly negative charge which provides a grounding force for our electrophysiology. With the advent of rubber shoes, cars, houses and elevated beds, we no longer come into contact with this grounding force. Think about it, when was the last time you had your bare feet planted on the earth for any real duration?
The benefits of connecting to the Earth include better sleep, improved blood pressure and anti-inflammatory and protection against EMFs. All you have to do is take your shoes off and put your bare feet directly on the earth or hug a tree.
Start with 10 minutes and pay attention to how you feel.
Simply take off your shoes and put your bare feet directly on the earth (grass, dirt, gravel, sand, etc) for 10 minutes. That’s it!
This is the best part? It’s completely free and it doesn’t require a whole lot of effort.
Do it in the morning, do it in the evening or do it every few days. If you see and feel the value in it, you’ll do it more.
As you increase, try barefoot hikes or increasing the amount of time you are connected directly to the Earth. It just feels right!
Don’t think of weather as a barrier, but an opportunity to connect.
Feeling of mud squishing between the toes is the best. It’s perhaps a more ancestral way to be.
As long as you’re getting out and about, I assure you that being outside will entrain your bio circadian rhythm so that you can set up your best sleep, which leads into your best week, which leads to your best life.
