Calm Down and Ground Yourself
We so often operate from the head up, we can almost forget to breathe. Need a bathroom break? That’ll have to wait. Hungry or tired? Again, the body must be patient and adapt to our schedule of priorities.
When we are stressed, it really doesn’t feel good – so we tend to find a myriad of ways to “check out” of having to actually feel anything. This is where problems can arise. Ignoring your feelings and your body’s signals often escalates over time. What started out as a quiet tap on the shoulder can become a tug of the arm and then snowball into a full-on panic attack or temper tantrum.
Regularly grounding yourself brings your awareness back into the body. It allows you to feel more of your emotions. Once you can acknowledge your feelings, you can be guided by them. If you walk with the conscious intention of connecting to the Earth, you can easily ground yourself. Imagining a rod extending from your tailbone into the core of the Earth is another simple technique. Alternatively, you can stand by a tree and imagine that you too have roots…extended from the soles of your feet into the Earth.
Take it a step further – go walking barefoot on the soil, sand or grass. By doing this, you can ground yourself and benefit by accessing the Earth’s electrons, which has been shown to have numerous health benefits such as reducing inflammation, delivering antioxidants, boosting our immune system as well as having an overall restorative effect.
