Last year, I enjoyed a two-week retreat in Bali…a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Each day, my schedule included a new activity to connect with nature… from flying yoga to exploring the rice fields to mindfully watching the sunset. But before each day began, I took a daily barefoot walk with my toes in the grass.
These no-shoe nature walks are commonly referred to as “grounding” or “earthing.”
Although seemingly simple, grounding can help you open up and move into the lightness of gratitude while radiating possibility… stepping stones to letting a new you emerge.
I relate to the quote by John Muir, “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” Because there are moments in life that shake you up, heighten your stress, and shock your system. And when those moments arise, earthing allows you to take a deep breath of fresh air, and connect the dots between your inner self and the world around you.
Multiple studies have shown that people who live in urban areas and have less access to greenery have increased anxiety and depression. And, taking a few minutes to unplug from life’s distractions and go for a nature walk has remarkable health advantages…from decreasing anxiety to lowering cortisol levels to reducing inflammation to improving time spent in REM sleep.
Before your morning shower today, enjoy a nature walk barefoot in the grass. Take this opportunity to reveal the deep nature of who you are to help you create a more meaningful, healthier life.
