Grounding is one of the best ways to release any negativity accumulated over the weeks, months or even years and can be easily done independently.
How to do Grounding for Free?
This is a common question that we get asked a lot from our customers, and do not worry as we will now share with everyone how you can do grounding for free.
First, grounding is a unique therapeutic technique involving activities that ground or connect you to the earth. A perfect example is by walking barefooted on the grass.
This technique can be done just about anywhere, but can we actually do it? Meaning if your home has a garden, can we do it there?
The answer is quite tricky as a garden outside our home may be distracting, which will affect our grounding exercise; hence, we need to go somewhere peaceful and quiet to do this.
You may have also read some articles on grounding, and most of them are written by Americans or Europeans, which focus on multiple techniques, some of which we have never heard of.
We write this article at Green Daun, where we are pure Malaysians and understand our local cultures and beliefs; hence we try to be straightforward in explaining what you can do for grounding.
First of all, grounding is a solo mission where you find time to get grounded. It defeats the purpose if you are going to bring your entire family along.
For example, you feel guilty that you do not spend time with your family and then plan a trip to a forest reserve on the pretext of spending a day out.
It usually ends up where you have to monitor your family and kids, leaving no time for yourself, defeating the purpose of grounding.
Remember, find a nice area with a lot of trees, plants, flowers and grass. Next, make sure you put off your phone as you do not need distractions.
The easiest way to ground ourselves is by;
Visiting a park, nature reserve or forest reserve – Make sure these places have many trees, plants, grass as this is the best way to connect back with nature and ground ourselves. Avoid modern parks with many playing or exercising structures as those do not provide a proper grounding experience.
Visiting a beach – If a beach is accessible by you, you can also pay a visit there and once there, take a walk on the sand to ground yourself.
Taking a hike – If you love trekking and hiking, then look for a nice safe hill where you can explore on your own to absorb nature. It is also recommended to do this in the mornings.
