The Summer holidays are here in Australia and, with a bit of luck, the weather will be kind so we can all enjoy plenty of time outdoors in nature. Many studies have shown that just two hours per week spent in nature significantly boosts health and well-being.
Combining time outdoors with some barefoot earthing can help to regulate stress levels, reduce pain and inflammation and promote better sleep. It’s simple, all you need to do is kick off your shoes while outdoors, or wear a pair of grounded shoes, such as Earth Runners sandals or Grounders. Earthing on grass or sand is best. Summer is a time for fun and relaxation so here are some of our favourite ways for the whole family to incorporate earthing into outdoor activities:
A swim in the ocean: if you’re lucky enough to live close to a beach, nothing beats the rejuvenating feeling of paddling in the shallows or swimming in the waves and there is no better way to earth!
Relaxing or playing on the beach: if the water is not your thing, then a simple barefoot walk on the beach or building sandcastles with the kids will provide you with the perfect amount of earthing time to feel all the wonderful benefits of soaking up those free electrons from the Earth
Camping: you don’t get much closer to nature than when you’re camping. What’s better than sleeping under the stars? Plenty of opportunities for barefoot earthing here … even if it’s just camping in your own backyard
Get out in the garden or plant a veggie patch: a lovely, mindful way to spend the day while getting your hands dirty
Go for a nature walk: head into the nearby bush or national park and discover some amazing bush walks. Earth Runners sandals are perfect for this adventure and you’re bound to find a perfect rest spot where you can kick off your shoes and ground yourself in the glorious natural environment.
Become a twitcher: grab a pair of binoculars and go bird-watching … barefoot of course!
Enjoy an outdoor picnic: whether in a local park, your own backyard or further afield, is there anything better than unfolding your picnic blanket, kicking off your shoes and enjoying a relaxing afternoon dining alfresco?
Go fishing: grab your gear, head to a good spot near you, kick off your shoes by the water’s edge and enjoy a peaceful couple of hours hoping for a bite
And earthing doesn’t need to stop when you return home or head back to the office. With a wide range of earthing products available for both day-time and night-time use, you can enjoy the benefits of earthing wherever you are!
