Have you heard of grounding? It’s a simple ritual of removing your shoes, and connecting with the earth for about 20 minutes every single day.
Supposedly, if practiced regularly, it improves your stress level, helps you sleep better, improves blood flow in your body, lessens pain, recharges your energy levels and generally boosts your wellbeing. Doesn’t that sound awesome?
Well, when Chelsea posted about it a few days ago, I immediately thought it would be a great little ritual to start this upcoming spring, but then I remembered that some of you are lucky to live in a warmer climate, so you can start it right away. Anyway, Chelsea’s grounding ritual involves going out to the garden each morning, finding a mossy little bank, and sitting or standing bare foot for about 20 minutes drinking tea. Le sigh, special!
She also mentions that if she has a bad day, she grounds twice and the whole thing gives her a feeling of warm, positive energy through her body and it leaves her feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!
Blimey, I was already really looking forward to spring but after this, I can hardly wait. Would you try it? I am marking my calendar for spring already :) xo

P.P.S: And 30 minutes to yourself in (silence).
