Rediscovering Our Connection with Mother Earth: The Basics of Earthing for Wellbeing

In today's fast-paced world, we have witnessed a surge in technological advancements that have undoubtedly improved our lives. However, amidst our busy indoor and digital routines, we often overlook our innate connection to the Earth. There is an undeniable urge deep within us to reconnect with nature - a longing that has become more urgent than ever.


When was the last time you went and spent time outside barefoot or otherwise in contact with our Earth? I dont mean to offend, just being mindfulness around how little contact our modern life has us in contact with the Earth and healing ability that can flow into us if we just let it. 


I get it! I do! Our lives seem crazy busy these days. When we think of all the advances of modern technology that should make our lives easier and give our most important commodity back.... Time! Well I dont know about you but at times I do really struggle squeezing my activities into the alloted time for the day!


Earthing is worth every minute though, I promise you. 


When we make direct contact with the Earth's conductive surface, something remarkable happens. From the very first micro-second we touch, we tap into the Earth's natural healing energy, this is called "earthing" or "grounding." Many people have shared stories about the many benefits they've experienced from earthing, including better sleep, reduced inflammation, pain relief, improved circulation, stress reduction, and increased energy levels. You ca check out our reviews if you life :)


The Earth generously provides us (free of charge) with a constant supply of free electrons, which are essential for our health and well-being. We can easily access these electrons by walking barefoot outdoors or using conductive grounding systems indoors, such as Earthing mat, earthing pillows, blanket, desk & floor mats, and more. 


Although vibrant health is something we all desire, achieving and maintaining it in our modern society often requires conscious effort and regular time. Factors like exposure to natural light, regular physical activity, a balanced diet, a positive mindset, and a harmonious environment all play vital roles in our overall well-being.


Living in a world filled with technology exposes us to constant various forms of man made electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) and constant exposure to blue light from screens. While taking breaks from our devices is crucial, given their prevalence in our lives, we must find ways to reduce our exposure to these potentially harmful elements. That's where specialized EMF and blue light protection technologies come in handy.


Our Grounded Kiwi collection offers a range of Earthing, EMF, and blue light protection products to support a healthy lifestyle all naturally. We've got you covered from Earthing products that seamlessly integrate into your daily routine to EMF protection solutions that enhance safety and peace of mind while using technology for the whole family.


For those interested in delving deeper into the science behind earthing, we recommend reading the Earthing book authored by Clint Ober, Dr. Stephen Sinatra, and Martin Zucker. This insightful resource provides valuable information and personal anecdotes about the transformative power of earthing.


Reconnect with nature, embrace the Earth's healing power, and embark on a journey towards enhanced well-being. Rediscover the profound benefits of earthing and cultivate a harmonious relationship with our planet for a healthier and more balanced life.
