Here I am facilitating a wellness workshop, one easy to do method to be more relaxed and present is grounding to Mother Earth. Apparently, it sounds woo woo, out there, a bit like tree hugging. It kinda is, it’s standing or sitting, with the soles of your bare feet, or the palms of your hands, connecting directly to the surface of the planet.
When the skin comes into contact with the ground, the human body becomes a sponge that soaks up negatively charged electrons from the earth. Research in 2017, that summarised 12 international peer reviewed reports, confirmed these electrons are a kind of electric nutrition, with potent and rapid anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. The evidence confirms that grounding is simple, natural, healing and an accessible strategy to reduce non-communicable diseases.
I do this for a minimum of twenty minutes each day, it’s a deal breaker for me. If you are wanting to be less stressed, sleep better, feel healthier and not so overwhelmed with life, challenge yourself to really change the way you spend time, and your team members, and the environment you are in. Set aside a certain amount of time each week for outdoor events and being in nature. For your next staff meeting or workshop, hold it outside amongst nature and get grounded to the earth. You will be amazed at how relaxed you and everyone else becomes. Take time out for you, get into nature today.
