Hey! – Rob here
Your Daily Health Fix today is about …
What’s it about
Re-equalising your body’s electric charge to the electrical potential of the earth.
We’ve spoken in the past about the effects of synthetic shoes and building materials on our feet, but an equally forgotten yet important element of ridding yourself of shoes is the opportunity to get back in contact with the earth and to resync with the ecosystem in which we evolved. Sound’s voodoo? Not so fast . . .
Why you should do it
Regular Earthing (or grounding) is has been shown to effect the human body in the following positive ways. . .
Upregulated neuro-modulation (reducing cortisol, increasing calm, improving quality of rest and recovery)
Reductions in chronic pain
Relief from PMS
Improved sleep apnea
Improved Heart Rate Variability
Stabilisation of blood oxygen
Faster healing and recovery
Reduced in inflamation
Quicker immune or stronger response
Reductions in blood viscosity
Improved blood circulation
Solid (in sync) circadian rhythm
Boosted mood & focus
How to fit it into your routine
It couldn’t be simpler – just go outside without your shoes on! Get in contact with the ground (ideally grass or dirt rather than paved surfaces).
As one of our most valuable tools is the “Sunlight before Screenlight” rule for ensuring morning daylight (sunlight) exposure, then why not combine the two protocols by slipping of your shoes when you first get outside. Not ready to walk far from home yet? No worries, just sit on the grass. Too busy with the kids? Why not get down to earth with them and check two boxes at once?
The practice of grounding is so simple to implement that there’s almost no excuse not to get started today!
. . . That’s it for this dose,
Until the next time – Stay Motivated!💪🏼
