The practice of earthing basically involves coupling your body to the Earth’s surface energy by walking, sitting or sleeping outside in direct contact with the Earth. It is known that the Earth maintains a negative electrical potential on its surface. When you are in direct contact with the ground (walking, sitting, or laying down on the earth's surface) the earth's electrons are conducted to your body, bringing it to the same electrical potential as the earth. Living in direct contact with the earth grounds your body, inducing favorable physiological and electrophysiological changes that promote optimum health.
While that's a lot of fancy talk
what I've learned is that just
a few minutes at the end of the day
can make me feel that much better!
Besides, its easy and cheap!
I mean.... it can't hurt, right?
So I slip off my shoes,
and head out into my own
backyard, and plant my feet
onto the ground (being mindful
of sharp pointy rocks or cactus thorns!)
There. LSNED (Learn Something New Every Day -- that was my motto when raising kids!)
Now go out and try some Earthing of your own!
