earthing is so healing!
over the past decade many studies have shown the truly healing effects of earthing (grounding), the practice of placing your bare feet (or any skin contact) directly on the earth.
🖐 🌍 🦶
our atmosphere contains + and - charged IONS (electrically charged atoms). while grounding, the earth acts as a magnet and *pulls* from your body the POSITIVE IONS (counterintuitive to their name, +IONS cause stress/disease and impair brain function, and are created by technology/pollution). research shows that earthing for 30 mins a day significantly decreases inflammation, boosts the immune system, increases blood flow, reduces pain and lowers cortisol levels (stress chemicals), all while causing a calming, connected sense of clarity.

equally, by earthing you are also recharging, in essence *absorbing* the NEGATIVE IONS (the healing ones! causing deep a relaxation and a sense of awe, and produced by nature and natural phenomena i.e. thunderstorms, rivers and waterfalls, the ocean, forests).

on a chemical level, -IONS increase serotonin levels, energize, improve well-being and allow your nervous system to return to its parasympathetic state (rest and digest). another plus of earthing, it helps promote better sleep! unplug to recharge?

I hang out in parks frequently to earth, meditate, journal. stretch and process. return to source. this part of my routine is what keeps me feeling grounded living in a city. especially since I spend so much time working from my computer (literally absorbing +IONS) I make sure to get my daily fix of the magnetic mother earth. nature heals! pro tip: visualizing the +/- dual channel while actively earthing enhances the process by adding mind magic to the mix. as always, xo
