Take Root Thursday
Ever noticed a shift in your energy after walking barefoot in nature? Whether you're exploring while on vacation, spending the day at the beach, or simply laying in the grass counting the clouds overhead, nothing beats the benefits of Earthing. And there's nothing like the quality of sleep that follows.
That's because the Earth is a natural source of electrons. When we are in direct contact with the Earth, also known as Earthing or Grounding, our bodies are filled with negative charged free electrons bringing us to the same electrical potential as the Earth.
Our bodies and cells have electrical energy. Positive electrons in the form of free radicals can build up in our bodies. Earthing balances this out as it has a negative charge.
Earthing also gives us amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, improved blood viscosity, heart rate variability, sleep, nervous system balance, reduced effects of stress on our bodies, increased energy, normalizing biological rhythms including our circadian rhythm, and speeds up the body's natural healing process.
So if you feel sick, tired, are having trouble sleeping, or feel a decrease in your energy, step outside, slip off your shoes, and experience the beauty and benefits for yourself! - Brandy L. Drenk
