Getting ourselves closer to the earth is a simple way to feel more grounded and relaxed. We are made up of 60% water which makes us great for conducting electricity. The earth has a negative ionic charge and when we go barefoot are bodies are able to ground that charge. Negative ions are proven to detoxify, calm, reduce inflammation, and even synchronise our internal clocks, hormonal cycles, and physiological rhythms. Next time you are outside take off your shoes and embrace nature!
RELAX UNDER A WATERFALL
Visiting a waterfall is a cleansing experience for the mind & the body by the sheer beauty of being there are also through the invigorating ions.

Negative ions are generated by moving water so get out the beach, go on a hike next to a river, or swim under a waterfall.
