Easy Grounding Practices


Methods For Feeling More Grounded

It’s simple to lose sight of what really matters in a time when technology dominates our lives and diversions are everywhere. We neglect our physical environment in favour of a digital one. As a result, we are cut off from our true selves, reality, and other people. Instead of following our instincts and relying on them, we approach problems with a technology-first mentality. Here are a few strategies to help you feel grounded if you’re prepared to return to reality and establish a deeper connection with who you are.

Walk Without Shoes – Nothing brings us closer to nature than bare flesh on the grass or dirt. So, remove your shoes and socks and give your feet some breathing room. Feel the comfort of the soil. If there isn’t a suitable location, consider doing it in the comfort of your own home. Consider how the water purifies and surrounds you with clarity when you’re in the shower or bath.

Breathe – Despite the fact that breathing occurs naturally, it should always be done consciously. The mind and body can be freed by pausing to take a few deep breaths. Even better, breathing in some pure, fresh air rejuvenates the spirit. Whenever you can, go for a walk in an area with lots of natural scenery. Watch the trees dance, listen to the wind sing, and keep an eye out for wildlife. It’s time to wash your problems and clear your mind.

Chew your food—This is not a joke seriously. Nowadays, speed is practically built into everything we do, including eating. When was the last time you skipped bringing lunch to work or eating it on the go? The next time you eat in front of a table, take your time and enjoy every bite. Give the flavours you can identify: sour, salty, bitter, and sweet. It’s not a race to complete your plate; take your time. Rushing makes it difficult to get in touch with your body and recognise when you are full. Your mind will welcome the right pause, and your stomach will reward you because meals will digest more easily.

Journaling – No matter how sensitive you are or whether you’re not a writer, keep a journal. Everyone has the ability to write down their thoughts and emotions; all you need to do is silence your surroundings and spend some time alone in order to truly hear what your heart and mind are saying. (If this seems frightening, keep in mind that fear is merely information. To evolve and act, one must have this knowledge.) You can write as much or as little as you want; it doesn’t have to be flawless. You can also draw, paint, or create a collage. You don’t even have to adhere to the page’s lines if you don’t want to. Make the time you spend journaling count, no matter how you do it. To feel a little lighter is the aim. Make it somewhere you want to go back to since it’s only for your eyes.

Move around – We weren’t intended to sit around all day staring at our phones or computers. We were designed to move to sing, dance, and shift as frequently as the water does, even if it’s dreadful. This is the perfect opportunity to connect with your intuition. Put on your earbuds, turn up your preferred playlist, and allow the pulsating energy to move you. Alternately, find a quiet space and gradually practise the yoga poses there. Make good use of movement for your needs. It might improve your mood or calm your energy.

Listen, I know it’s terrifying, unpleasant, and extremely distressing right now, but you’ll be OK. This is something you must do for yourself. You must go beyond what is known and strive to believe that you will be fine no matter what. Even if things don’t work out. Even if you don’t find what you’re looking for, it’s still a good thing to show that you tried. It is with this thought I introduce my new book “Acceptance”. Hope we find the courage to accept what is. https://a.co/d/jli7oHN
