"The gulls are re-energizing themselves with a walk on the beach."
The good ole sumer time ! Take
advantage of the good weather and sunshine, take off your shoes and wiggle your toes in the grass or on the beach in the sand!..Walking on the beach in Florida has always been a favorite time for me. I agree with the statements below, that after a day of fun
walking on the beach I would have a wonderful nights sleep.
Did you ever run/walk in the grass in the park or your back yard? Try it again..you'll be surprised at how it makes you feel. Just being in contact with the earth gives
me a sense of well being. I don't 'run' anymore (at my age it's called trotting !) but I sure enjoy having my feet tickled in the grass! '
Try it, you'll like it !
grounded ...what does that mean?
Basically, the theory is that our bodies are meant to come into contact with the Earth (a “grounding” force) on a regular basis. Positive electrons in the form of free radicals
(ever heard of those guys?) can build up in our bodies and direct contact with the ground balances this out as it is a negative grounding charge.
Our bodies and cells have electrical energy, and especially with the high prevalence of Electromagnetic
waves, Wi-If and mobile phone waves, many of us have a high amount of positive electrons built up in our bodies.
It Used to Happen Automatically
Throughout history, humans have spent time outdoors much more than we do in modern time and have
been in direct contact with the soil. From walking on the ground barefoot, to gardening or tilling the soil, humans have always touched the earth… until recently.
Now, we live in houses, wear rubber shoes, are exposed to EMFs daily and don’t
often come into direct contact with the ground.
Have you ever noticed that you sleep better on a beach vacation after walking in the sand or being in the ocean? The sand and ocean water and both naturally conductive materials and both help ground the
body and remove excess positive electrons. For the same basic reason that we ground electrical outlets to avoid the build up of excess positive charge, our bodies need the same
What is Earthing?
According to the book “Earthing” 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 or using a device that creates the same response while indoors.
(you can find out more about grounding devices on Dr. Mercola's website.
Just check the arcives for "Grounding".)
When in direct contact with the Earth, your body becomes suffused with negative charged free electrons and equalizes to the same electric energy level as the earth.
According to emerging research, Earthing
can be beneficial in:
- Reducing inflammation by defusing excess positive electrons
- Reducing chronic pain
- Improving Sleep (I can vouch strongly for this!)
- Increasing Energy (I noticed this also)
- Lowering stress
and promoting calmness by reducing stress hormones.
- Normalizing biological rhythms including circadian rhythm
- Improving blood pressure and blood flow
- Relieving muscle tension and headache (I noticed this)
menstrual and female hormone symptoms
- Speeds healing- used in some places to prevent bed sores
- Can eliminate jet lag
- Protecting the body from EMFs
- Shortens recovery time from injury or athletic activity
or eliminating snoring
- Helping support adrenal health
