How to Balance your Body and Soul by Grounding

How to Balance your Body and Soul by Grounding

Everyone could use a little grounding in their life. You may be unfamiliar with the term grounding or earthing, but it is nothing to shy away from! Grounding is a natural way to ease the stress in your life, as well as improve sleep by using--that’s right--the very ground we stand on! Our bodies were meant to come in contact with the earth daily, multiple times per day even.

Throughout the years, we have gradually spent less and less time outdoors. Between long hours at work, the day-to-day chores associated with owning vehicles and homes, over-stimulation with our various electronic devices, and easily accessible entertainment right from our couch, it has become increasingly difficult to enjoy our leisure time outside.

Usually, we will find tiles, carpet, wood and other synthetic floorings in homes and work spaces, that replace the very floors our ancestors walked on- the earth in its purest form.

Read on for ways you can ground your body and get back in sync with Mother Earth, all while relieving stress, decreasing inflammation, and syncing your body with the earth below you.

Its when these thoughts become a pattern that they become not only harder to shake, but they can also affect our ambition and ability to navigate through our daily tasks as fluidly as wed like.

Negative thought patterns can also affect our sleep, motivation, productivity, emotional strength and stability. Negative energy has this way of being able to pull us down, and the unconscious mind works in such powerful ways that it can diminish our happiness and make us feel badly about certain things in our life.

Sometimes, our mindset can be affected by stress and overwhelm in trying to juggle everything in our business and life. Other times our moods can swing due to our menstrual cycles, the lunar cycle or even just the weather getting us down. It may seem like there is no good reason to be feeling negative, whilst other times it might be very clear what has caused the shift in mood and thinking.
