Want to calm and center? Then look to your feet!

The power of meditation and breath is undeniable.   It’s been around for years.   There’s a meditation class in every suburb and the power of long slow deep breathing has been proven over and over.    But there’s another aspect to calm and centre the body and ground us back down to the earth.

And it’s simply called ‘Earthing’.

Have you ever wondered why something as simple as a walk along the beach feels so good?   It’s more than just the sand, the water and ocean air.   There’s an undeniable electrical charge.

A great friend of mine gave me the book titled ‘Earthing‘ a few years ago and I’d never heard of the concept before.    But now all those relaxing walks on the beach make so much sense.   The reason it’s come up for this blog post was after a conversation I had with a girlfriend over lunch today.   She’s facing some serious work stress, health stress and life changes are huge for her at the moment.   I know she’s barely holding herself together but she’s looking forward to a week at the beach soon.
