Should I do earthing?

 

When I first heard about earthing I wasn’t sure what that meant. I found out that earthing is the practice of walking barefoot on the ground - grass, dirt, anything that is directly connected with the center of the earth  - to feel more grounded and connected with oneself. I find it really interesting that we are so disconnected from nature that walking barefoot on grass is actually something that has its own name and “should be practiced”.

Key points of this video:

  • Earthing is the practice of walking barefoot on the grass or the earth in general

  • 5-10 minutes daily have shown to help with overall vitality and wellness

  • Some sources suggest that earthing reduces inflammation

  • Grounding has shown to have a positive influence on the cardiovascular system

  • Earthing stimulates the acupuncture point called Kidney 1, the only acupuncture point on the soles of the feet

  • Kidney 1 helps to quench that constant “being in your head” feeling

  • If your thoughts are on a merry-go-round, then add some earthing to your daily routine

  • Connecting with nature is always a good practice, so go out and do it!

Connecting with nature is always a good practice, so go out, take off your shoes and give earthing a try!
