Walking barefoot outdoors or stay “electrically connected” to the Earth in some other way is supposed now to be the right way to have a good health, many scientists affirm. Results published in science journals show that grounding improves mood, quality of sleep and immune function, while reducing stress and tension. “Just as the Sun gives us warmth and vitamin D, the Earth underfoot gives us food and water, a surface to walk, sit, stand, play and build on, and something you never ever thought about – an eternal, natural and gentle energy. Think of it as vitamin G – G for ground. What does that mean to you? Maybe the difference between feeling good and not so good, of having little or a lot of energy, or sleeping well or not so well,” a such study says.
Experiments were made and proved that subjects who were earthed reported higher pleasant and positive moods compared with the unearthed control groups. All is about the circulation of free electrons in our body. A definitive conclusion was not yet defined and more researches are needed. But based on those findings some people believe that isolating ourselves from the Earth by wearing shoes, or indeed even being indoors, causes illness. There is no specific guideline. But we have nothing to lose if from time to time we will walk with bare feet on the ground. Doing it on grass will be pleasant at least.
