Walking barefoot on the grass called “grounding” which is also known as “earthing” has some amazing health benefits proven by recent research. Researchers suggested that people who live near green spaces have better mental and physical health than people who don’t.
The idea behind earthing or grounding is, the earth is full of electrical energy and we humans also evolved with this electric charge. When we walk barefoot free electrons from the earth’s surface absorbed by our body and nourishes us.
Let’s have a look at the miraculous health benefits of walking barefoot on the grass:
Increases the feel-good hormone Endorphin and helps reduce depression and anxiety.
Can improve circadian rhythm synchronized with the day-night cycle that leads to having a deeper sleep and may treat conditions such as insomnia.
Antioxidants enter into our body. Negative charge (here, negative is good!!!) of earth’s surface generating electrons continually that could offset free radicals that are responsible for growing cancerous cells, chronic inflammation and other diseases.
Help regulate our autonomic nervous system which is responsible for digestion, blood pressure, hormone secretion and maintaining optimum body temperature among other functions.
Improves posture and balance that can lead to a stronger leg, core muscle and lower back.
Reduces stress by reducing the stress-causing hormone cortisol.
Helps reduce pain from injuries, reduce swelling and heal faster.
Many mainstream health care practitioners are suggesting their patients use grounding as a treatment tool. Researchers have found that walking barefoot on the grass minimum of 30 minutes a day can nourish our body, mind and soul.
