Grounding: A Few Steps A Day Can Radically Transform Your Life!
By Marilee Nelson |
After years of working with clients and experiencing my own healing, I truly believe in the power that we all have to transform our health. It starts by making everyday choices to help us thrive. There is so much needless suffering today, and we are in the midst of a national healthcare crisis of unprecedented proportions. The price of convenience—new technology, fast food and instant everything—is robbing us of the richness that life has to offer. But we have the power to take control! As summer kicks into high gear, here is one simple change that you can make today that will be a radical game changer for your health. And it’s completely free!
Ground and Set Your Body Clocks
Why? Grounding restores your body’s natural, internal electrical stability and is one of the fastest ways to reduce inflammation. It is like taking handfuls of antioxidants through your feet! The moment your foot touches the ground, you connect to the earth, and your physiology changes. Setting your body clocks is essential, because we overdose on artificial lights 24/7. This exposure, especially at night, is worse than eating processed sugar. It disrupts our circadian rhythm, puts us in fight-or-flight mode (activating the sympathetic nervous system), and disturbs our sleep.
So, kick off your shoes, put down your phone, take off your glasses, and go barefoot for a walk in the grass or on the beach. Benefits include:
- Improved sleep
- Reduced pain & inflammation
- Encouraged weight loss
- Setting parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest mode) in motion
- Activating your more-than-two dozen body clocks by exposure to sunlight (sans sunglasses) Even gut bacteria respond!
- Activating Vitamin D production.The skin is like a solar panel, so when it gets warm, expose as much skin as possible.
You should aim for 20 - 30 minutes, and grounding is ideal in the morning when dew is still on the ground. Make sure the area you choose has not been treated with chemical pesticides and/or fertilizers. Don’t despair if you don’t have grass or a beach, just take a walk without your phone and without glasses!*
