Apart from all the wonderful fruit, veg and herbs and flowers you can grow in the garden to keep everyone healthy and away from the processed food, gardening is one of the best hobbies you can take up for grounding reasons.
Since I was little, I remember being told that it’s good for you to go outside without shoes, and lately there has been scientific research proving that grounding is one of the best possible things you can do for your health – mentally, physically and spiritually, but notably, at first glance, definitely physically.
The atmosphere is charged with positive electrons and the earth with negative. Because we tend to live in carpeted houses, go to work in insulated offices, and wear rubber soled shoes, many of us are actually carrying a huge amount of positive electrons in our bodies which in turn can put the system out of sync!
As soon as you touch the earth with your bare skin, the positive electrons are released into the earth and neutralized. Wow – nature is amazing isnt it?:-)
Obviously we can’t run around on the beach or the lawn whenever we want to – shame – but we can remember to get in touch with the earth from time to time – it’s good to get about 45 minutes of being in touch with the earth every day – but one minute is better than none!
These points of contact will help:
*simply walking barefoot outside on a natural surface. I’ve heard that old concrete works, new concrete doesn’t because of added ingredients but I can’t find anymore details on that so far. (I’ll update if I find anything)
*hug a tree! I know, we’re not all hippies but honestly try this when you get a chance. Wrap your arms around the tree as far as you can, close your eyes and feel the vibrations of the tree.
*Shower rather than bath if possible. The rubber plug in the outlet stops the grounding process. You can get round this a little by staying in the bath while the water runs out but that doesn’t take long and you don’t get a huge benefit from doing that. Shower if you can!
And if all else fails, you can actually buy Grounding mats these days. I’ve never tried these but there does seem to be a market for them so if the outside space you have available isn’t convenient to wander around barefoot, this may be an option.
I found this one on Amazon (UK) at the time of writing. I haven’t tried it but it looks kinda cool! There are mixed reviews though.
