Have you ever heard of “grounding”?

I must admit the term was new to me, but it’s a fascinating concept that a lot of people swear by.

The term refers to the therapeutic or nurturing powers that one gets from walking barefoot outdoors.

“Grounding, also referred to as earthing, means having direct contact with the earth — such as walking barefoot. Researchers have found numerous benefits when we do grounding, such as reducing pain and inflammation, and even improving sleep.” – Marilyn Rogers
