Let's get earthing

If you live near the ocean go for a walk along the beach in the morning or just sit in the sand and bury your feet in or If you have a park close by go for walk and sit down under a nice tree and connect your bare feet to the grass or the dirt.

Or just step outside your door into your back yard bare foot, just sit and be present. Take in all of the sounds and smells around you. Feel the grass and the dirt under your feet.

Make the time to get outdoors and get grounded, if you feel strapped for time eat your breakfast and your lunch outside. Just 15 minutes per day outdoors is better than no time at all. 

Get outside now and see how it feels, take note of how you feel while you are earthing and how you feel after.

Don’t forget to take your shoes off, and enjoy!
