Walking barefoot in the grass or down the beach can be calming, balancing, or energizing. You might think it’s because of the sun on your face or the wind in your hair, but there’s more to it than that. Connecting to the earth provides you with something more: Electrons. When you touch the ground, your body absorbs the free electrons and all the amazing benefits they provide. This is called being ‘grounded.’
We live our lives mostly insulated from the earth (wearing rubber-soled shoes, living indoors, driving in our cars, etc). Over time, this causes our bodies to become depleted. Touching the ground replenishes our electron balance and restores our lost connection to the earth’s energy.
We’d all like to spend more time in nature in direct contact with the earth, but spending hours in nature every day is impractical for most. That’s where Earthing products come in. They are like extension cords that allow you to connect to the earth when you can’t be out in nature. They allow you to easily incorporate grounding into your everyday life whether you are relaxing, working, or even sleeping.
