Getting Grounded, Go Barefoot
Many of us spend most of our waking hours wearing shoes with rubber or plastic soles. These materials are very effective insulators that disconnect us from the Earth’s natural electron flow.
Walking barefoot is one of the easiest and best ways to get and stay grounded. Leather-soled shoes also let’s us stay grounded with the Earth.
Good grounding surfaces include:
- Sand (beach)
- Grass (moist)
- Bare soil
- Concrete and brick (as long as it’s not painted or sealed)
- Ceramic tile
The following surfaces will not ground us:
- Rubber and plastic
- Tar or tarmac
In today’s world, this is more important than ever, yet fewer of us than ever actually connect with the Earth in this way anymore.
Free radical stress from exposure to pollution, cigarettes, insecticides, pesticides, trans fats, and radiation, to name a few, continually deplete our body of electrons.
By just getting outside, barefoot, touching the Earth, and allowing the excess charge in our body to discharge into the Earth, can alleviate some of the stress continually put on your system.
The next time you feel the urge to kick off your shoes, go ahead and try it, you might like it.
