Earthing, or grounding, is a way of connecting to the earth by walking barefoot or being outdoors in nature. And then reaping all the health benefits. Here in the jungle we are naturally immersed in nature and don't have a fancy name for it. But I was delighted to find the Earthing Institute Research website, along with this research article that shows that healing in nature works!
And if you're keeping up, forest bathing was developed in Japan in the 80's, while research on earthing began in the 90's in the U.S.
