It seems as though too much stress is epidemic in our population these days. If you are like most people, you are doing more than ever before and yet frequently not getting much done! You may find that you are doing too much at once with little focus--and little grounding. There may be too much going on in your head and not enough physical activity in your body.
When you are stressed out, it also seems like time is moving by more quickly and you actually can't get as much done. It is a very odd perception and I think many of you can relate--especially if you are of the tech generation. Part of the problem is that you may have compromised the "balance" in your live that used to come naturally before you became plugged into the Internet and cell towers. By doing so you are compromising your long term health, productivity and feeling of wellbeing that was intended be a natural state for your body.
Stress is Similar to Static Electricity: It Seeks a Ground
In some ways, stress is very similar to static electricity. Do you know how you can be charged with static electricity and then touch something grounded and get zapped? This happens because the energy that you had built up in your body found a route out. You became grounded. This is similar with stress; it sort of sneaks up on you and builds up in your body. To get relief, you need to find a way to let it go. One way to do that is to establish a healthy ground.
Tips to Get You Back in Touch With Nature--Your Healthy Ground:
Here are a few simple ideas that you can integrate into your life to help you get back in touch with nature.
