Simply put, Earthing is nothing more than reconnecting your feet with the Earth
I didn't wear shoes until I was about 22 years old when I entered the Corporate world and began a cycle of business-casual clothing and practical shoes (even during my Corporate days I was never a heel-wearer). Flash forward a decade or so (ok, maybe even longer than that!) and I hear about "Earthing". I watched the video below and so many things clicked for me.
Adorable video that quickly explains Earthing
After watching the above video, I immediately ordered my first grounding mat to place under my desk while I worked. I receive the mat, excitedly plug it in, take off my shoes, place them upon the mat and it was AH-mazing. I immediately had the sensation of being pulled downwards. Almost as if I was made of honey and I was 'melting' to the ground. Although that might sound alarming, it was quite the opposite... It was fantastic. I felt so calm. I felt grounded. My mind was quiet. It was fabulous. Soon afterwards I purchased a few more mats for my friends as well as the Earthing blanket which can be used as a throw or you can sleep on top of it. Any way you use it, its amazing. They offer multiple products including the mats, blankets, and sheets and more! Click the image below to see their Grounding mat on Amazon. (I may earn a small commission should you decide to make a purchase using the link) NOTE TOO: that while Amazon can carry some of the Earthing brand products, I find that often the Earthing.com website has better deals than Amazon! So be sure to check both. Their website allows you to shop "by need" which helps you figure out which products will work best for you.
"Earthing" Shoes! Yup! That's a thing!
After buying the Earthing mats and blankets I then decided to search for other Earthing-based products and I found a company called EarthRunners.com and they make grounding SHOES! Oh my! Long story short, the first time I put these on and walked into my front yard I felt like a kid again. All at once I suddenly remembered the feeling of always being barefoot and the feeling of being connected to the Earth through my feet - something I had not felt in years simply because my lifestyle did not find me outdoors - and barefoot - any longer. Needless to say, these are my GO TO shoes in the warm weather! Easy to clean and SO comfortable I am just waiting for them to create a closed-shoe version for those of us in the Northeast! Click the image below or just click here to check out the EarthRunner website! And if you buy a pair, let me know! I'd love to know about your experience with them!

And finally, remember that you don't have to buy anything to practice "Earthing"! Just get outside and get those feet on the ground!
Do your own Google searches to find out more information and if you find other Earthing products that you like, please let me know! I would love to hear about them!
