We are in a time of information overload. It is a constant flow of dates, times, and numbers, so our minds are working overtime, exhausting our bodies and we are constantly tired, this is a sign we need grounding.
Grounding is simply a process of getting out of our heads and into our bodies and finding that balance between both. We all have experienced those days or times when we are on the go all day and yet achieving nothing, or we begin many tasks and finish none. This is a disconnection between mind and body. When you find you cannot concentrate or make a decision, you are out of balance mentally and physically and you need to ground.
Here are 3 quick and easy ways to ground yourself:
1. Grounding is reconnecting with the earth. The most effective tip that I use myself is when your feet hit the floor first thing, send roots from the soles of your feet down through the floor and through the
many layers of earth anchoring in. This sets you up for the day, from here you can plan and set intentions.
2. Follow your breath. Close your eyes, breathe in for 3 counts and breathe out for 6 counts, feel the flow in your body. You can do this many times throughout the day.
3. Mindful walking. Walking, even around your own environment, without a phone or distractions, being completely present. Feel each foot on the ground, tune into each step in each moment.
Grounding is the basis for all self-care practices, our body connected to the earth is the foundation for a balanced and productive day.
Prioritizing this technique is the key to manifestation and abundance.
