Did you know that walking barefoot on the earth helps to promote health and vitality, lower stress, relieve muscle tension and headaches, improve blood pressure, reduce inflammation and its associated pain, as well as helping to stabilise the body’s basic biological rhythms, promoting better sleep, and protecting the body against potentially health-disturbing environmental electromagnetic fields (EMFs)?
Pretty impressive huh!
Martin Zucker, co-author of Earthing – The Most Important Health Discovery Ever states that “the modern disconnect from this natural resource right under our feet may likely be a totally overlooked factor behind the alarming rise of chronic disease in recent decades, and inflammatory-related conditions in particular.”
I’m a big fan of multi-tasking, and LOVE combining my daily exercise with earthing via a walk at the beach. From my point-of-view, there’s no better way to start the day.
Don’t live near a beach? I hear you. Throughout my life I’ve lived on the beach in Sydney, near a park in Milan, on the outskirts of the desert in Las Vegas, in the concrete jungle of London, in the midst of rolling meadows in the English countryside, on a marina in Gibraltar, amongst olive groves on the idyllic island of Ibiza and most recently surrounded by gum trees in the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland. Irrespective of where I’ve lived, there was ALWAYS an opportunity to gift my body a moment of earthing. All it takes is a little imagination and the choice to put it in to action.
