I think it is just right to make a little note of how we are feeling now that the grounding has begun this to compare how we will feel in a few weeks from now. We are trying to spend about 30 minutes a day on grass or regular ground. The kids only got around 10 minutes this morning and they might not get as much as we do since they go to school but perhaps we can double, triple, their dose of grounding once the weekend rolls around.
So here is current status for project’s participants:
Mom – sneezes every morning, is tired a lot (Mom thing no?) and suffers from many allergies, lower backpains
Dad – is constantly clearing his throat and is often stressed, lower back pains
6 year old – asthma and many colds, has an attach about once every 2 months more as the winter season hits
4 year old – often has a runny nose
Having done a first day of walking on grass or ground throughout the day I can’t really say I feel any difference. The only thing was that the actual grounding came with a sense of calm and freshness, but then again, so would any break with fresh air so nothing conclusive yet.
The experiment moves on…
I am posting this quickly to let you know that I will start a grounding section in this blog. Having learnt more about this concept we have decided to give it a try. If you are new to grounding and its benefits, like I am, you should probably check Wikipedia to learn more about how the natural energies of the earth can work against the bad effects of free radicals in our bodies. It all sounds logic to me but I will not believe that it works till I see it with my own eyes.
We live in a Jungle of Asphalt
Once we decided to start the grounding it dawned on us that we live in a jungle of asphalt. There is hardly any grass or dirt to walk barefoot on! Having a small patch of grass next to our building I decided to start there late last night. In our community women do not walk around barefoot so in the cover of the dark I stepped around for a few minutes. The immediate feeling was good, relief, but that could all be an illusion since I know it is supposed to be good.
This morning the kids got to walk on this small patch for almost 10 minutes. After that we had to rush to get to the school bus on time. I didn’t think they would want to stay there for so long but it turns out they loved it and could have kept on walking there for more time. It is winter and the ground is chilly, but I made sure that they are properly dressed and that they don’t get too cold. Their feet were not icy cold when I put their socks and shoes on so it looks like it is not such a big deal that we are starting this now that December is coming around.
What are we looking for…?
I will continue to post on this section and give insights into our grounding test. I am looking to get rid of my constant sneezing and colds, I also want to see if the kids’ problems with asthma and colds will be reduced and if my husband will stop coughing. I have heard that these things can improve with the grounding after a few weeks so we will see if this is true.
Come back and see how it goes for a real life reference to the effects of grounding!
