A friend of mine suggested that I write about something called “earthing,” and that was literally the first time I heard anything on the topic.
I did a quick Google search, only to find out that earthing, aka grounding, is something I actually already do and have been doing for as long as I can remember.
Let me cut to the chase: I hate wearing shoes outside.
I know that sounds CRAZY, or maybe not so much to those of you who know me well, but I really do. I hate them. I don’t feel right walking on grass with shoes, so I like to kick them off when I am in my own yard.
It turns out, according to some pretty smart people, there is something to that and now suddenly I don’t feel so strange.
What is it?
Earthing, or grounding, is the art of walking barefoot to “reconnect the human body to the earth’s surface electrons,” This makes sense to me, because like any other living thing we need water, we need sunshine, we need fresh air so we must need earth.
