With your bare feet in the grass or on the beach always gives a wonderful feeling. I myself always associated that with holiday feelings or free time. Only recently I found out that there is still a very large element that makes it a good feeling. It’s because of the connection to the earth.
At home with your bare feet in the garden? Then you do grounding, also called grounding.
Just a little side trip to a bit of science. If you only want to know why earthing is good for you, feel free to skip the explanation. For others who do want to know how it works, I explain it below.
How does earthing work?
Earthing works because the earth is a large source of free electrons. These electrons have a negative charge and are naturally present in the earth. When we make direct contact with the earth, for example by putting bare feet on the ground, these electrons are passed on to our body and act as a kind of antioxidant.
Our bodies have a natural electrical charge that can be disturbed by the many electromagnetic fields produced by modern technologies such as computers, mobile phones, televisions, etc. When we connect to the earth, this disturbed charge is neutralized, which can help with reducing inflammation and reducing stress and anxiety.
We were previously grounded by our nature. But that is less and less the case. We are no longer connected to our energy source, which maintains our electrical stability of the body. And with that, primarily seen, also the immune system. So it’s not that grounding heals you, but it “removes” the wrong things from your body, making you feel better and that does provide health benefits.
So grounding, also known as grounding, is the process of making contact with the earth by placing bare feet on the ground. The idea behind grounding is that it allows us to take advantage of the earth’s electrical charge, which can have several health benefits. This is also scientifically researched and as this research shows, grounding actually offers benefits for your health. Below I will tell you more about this.
What does earthing do to your health?
These are seven benefits of earthing that give a positive boost to your health:
1 Reduces inflammation
Earthing has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body, which can help treat various conditions such as arthritis, asthma, and even cancer.
2 Reduces stress and anxiety
Grounding can also help lower cortisol levels in the body, which can help reduce stress and anxiety.
3 Improves your sleep
Grounding can help regulate the body’s sleep-wake cycle, which can lead to better sleep quality and an increased sense of well-being.
4 More energy
Connecting to the Earth can help increase the body’s energy levels and reduce fatigue.
5 Improved blood circulation
Earthing can improve blood circulation in the body, which can help treat a variety of health conditions, such as high blood pressure and chronic pain.
6 Improves the immune system
Earthing can also help strengthen the immune system, making the body better able to fight disease and infection.
7 Improves overall health
Grounding allows the body to function better and protect itself from various diseases and health problems, improving overall health.
Earthing is also increasingly being used for to fall off. Think of it more as a spiritual way of weight management that will help you feel better and also help you lose weight faster.
Need more research
While more research is needed to fully understand the benefits of earthing, it is clear that there are many potential health benefits associated with this simple, natural method of earthing.
How can you experience the benefits of earthing for yourself?
Actually, the easiest way to experience it is to take off your shoes and stand, sit or lie down on the grass. Suppose you also have pain somewhere, then this is often an inflammation. What grounding does is reduce the inflammation in your body. Many studies have already been done on the phenomenon of earths, but the best evidence should be your experience.
If you want to ground more and better than just with your bare feet in the grass, you can invest in all kinds of handy products that have the same effect and also enhance it. Because I’m so excited and also see what it does to me, I’m grounding while sleeping or with my feet on a grounding mat while I’m working (as you can see in the picture). I am enjoying writing this article. And tonight I’m going to sleep on my special pillowcase again. Curious? Here you can find these products in the webshop.
The first message is simple, go and try it yourself in the grass! It’s free and it’s fun! You should notice the difference after an hour…
Are you curious if grounding is also something for you and if it can help with your health struggles? Please leave a message below and I will contact you for personal advice.
In case of major health problems, you should of course always consult a doctor first and follow his or her advice. In addition you can see what feels good for you about self-care.
How can you ground yourself?
Here’s a quick overview of what you can do yourself to experience the benefits of earthing:
1 Bare feet on the floor
This is the simplest and most effective way to ground. Go outside and put your bare feet on the ground, whether it’s grass, sand, or dirt.
2 Earthing sheet or earthing mat
If it is not possible to be outside, an earthing sheet or mat can be a good option. These mats have a conductive layer that transmits electrons from the earth to your body while you sleep or work.
I am outside a lot, but I also use the grounding mat and I notice that I feel much better. It is very special how it works through to your body. If you want to know a little more about this, drop it below and I’ll send you some info!
3 Find the water
Water is a good conductor of electricity. For example, by swimming in the sea or a lake you can ground yourself.
Plants have roots that extend to the earth and are therefore connected to the earth. By being near plants, you can also experience a light grounding.
It is important to note that earthing is not a substitute for medical treatment and it is always important to consult with a doctor if you have any health concerns.
in short, enough easy options to experience it for yourself!

PS. It’s actually less nice that I really notice on my computer what energy comes out of the device, because I now feel it vibrate. I didn’t do that in the past, when my feet weren’t grounded yet. So now I feel it and that confirms that something is happening. And yes it does get used to such a slight vibration under my wrists.
Together with Jenny I own Good food Healthy living. After my study period I mainly worked as an online analyst and made great career moves. But my real passion lies with healthy food and cooking! I have often worked with Jenny and I was often able to advise her on which food was right for her. We enjoyed exploring together. What exactly is a healthy lifestyle? What effect does nutrition and exercise have on how you feel? Why is the power of thoughts so strong? This website is my passion. Together with Jenny I like to share tips about a healthy lifestyle.
