When it comes to earthing, we need to consider that not every surface will work. Whether you are going barefoot or wearing earthing footwear, you need to ensure you’re in contact with a conductive surface.
The best surfaces for grounding are sand, soil or grass. It’s even better if the sand is wet or the grass is dewy as the conductive nature of water means that moist surfaces offer enhanced conductivity providing an abundance of electrons to your body. Oceans, rivers or lakes are also fantastic grounding environments. You can even ground on concrete, gravel, stone pavers and certain types of tiles however they need to be made from natural materials and be laid directly on the Earth or a concrete slab. With modern building and manufacturing practices, it’s likely that plastics, glues, paints or other chemical bonding agents may be included with which would act as an insulator and prevent you from receiving any electrons from the Earth. Surfaces that will not ground you include vinyl, wood, carpet, tiles and painted/sealed concrete floors.
Daily contact with the Earth can keep us grounded for optimal wellbeing. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible and our modern, busy lifestyles often get in the way of us living naturally earthed. We have obstacles like living in insulated homes, working in high-rise offices and wearing rubber soled shoes. Our planet offers free electrons to help our bodies function at their best, yet most of us don’t make the most of this. Studies have shown that regular earthing helps to significantly reduce inflammation which is the leading cause of chronic disease so incorporating this practice into our daily lives couldn’t be more important.
The best way to live a grounded lifestyle is to kick off your shoes and take a stroll along the beach or through a field. This isn’t always possible; you may live in a city, nowhere near the coast or perhaps don’t like going barefoot at all. Luckily, we can solve this with our wide range of earthing footwear that will help whilst walking on different terrains in comfort.
