Step 2:  Talking and thinking about a life on a farm..inspired me to bring up the idea of Grounding or what is called Earthing?  This might sound strange but its an important part of our health.  Did you ever wonder why you feel so good when you walk on the beach?…or why your kids never want to put their shoes on even when its snowing outside??  The earth provides us with a healing energy just like the sun.  It’s simple and an easy to do.  Go barefoot on the earth as much as possible.  To Learn more about earthing and to see all the cool products they have made to bring earthing inside the home click on website link below.

Going Barefoot“Throughout history humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground. But modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber- or plastic-soled shoes, has disconnected us from the Earth’s energy and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground. Fascinating new research has raised the possibility that this disconnect may actually contribute to chronic pain, fatigue, and poor sleep that plague so many people.

The remedy for the disconnect is simple. Walk barefoot outdoors whenever possible and/or sleep, work, or relax indoors in contact with conductive sheets or mats that transfer the energy to your body. People who do on a regular basis say they sleep better, feel better, and have more energy during the day.  This simple practice is called Earthing, also known as grounding, and it is both a technology and a movement which is transforming lives across the planet”   Stated on www.earthing.com

 

 

Here is a great documentary called Grounding to show you how it all works:
