Feeling stressed? With all the conflicting advice about the best way to deal with stress it can be stressful working out what to do about it! Seeing one of the many therapists out there in the private sector can be a daunting prospect too. Not to mention the prices can vary from £20 - £500!!! Arrgh!!! More stress!!
Well here is a long forgotten and FREE way of quickly melting some of that stress away. And yes, I know once you have read this you will probably think, "that's nonsense" or "it won't work for me". But how often have we said we won't like something or don't like something, only to find out later in life, we were wrong....we do like it!!! What I'm saying is: Give it a go....
Grounding - What the hell is that?
Don't worry it has nothing to do with electricity or running about naked in a lightning storm (Unless you want to of course, but I'll let you decide on that one!) No, it's all to do with connecting to the earth. Ok...I know what you're thinking......but before you write it off as all 'New worldy, space age, airy old rubbish', it's actually backed by science!
So what is it and how does it work. It has been observed that by walking barefoot on the ground, negative electrons pass from the earth (Which has a naturally negatively charged state), up through your feet and into your body. The effect this has is measurable and it can help improve insomnia and poor sleep, inflammation, chronic stress etc. You can read more in this article and HERE.
Surely Officer John McClane can't be wrong!!
Ok, I know it sounds a bit on the edge but honestly, I have been doing it for a while and it definitely feels good! Remember Bruce Willis in the first Die Hard Movie when he's scared of flying? In the movie, the passenger next to him tells him to take off his shoes and 'feel' the ground.....Surely Officer John McClane can't be wrong!!
