How Do You Practice Earthing in the Fall and Winter?
Rake LeavesThat's right - get out and rake some leaves this Fall and make sure to touch them with your bare hands as you bag them. If you have children, play in the leaves on your hands and knees. Build a fort with leaves or roll in them. The more contact your skin has with the earth the better, as conductivity can take place. If the leaves are damp or wet, that shouldn't hinder you. Moisture increases conductivity so don't let the dampness stop the fun or your earthing experience.
Wear Fall Earthing FootwearPurchase earthing footwear that uses copper plates to allow electron conductivity, such as Juil shoes. Soft Sole moccasins also work as excellent earthing footwear since they have a natural leather sole which allows electron transfer to occur. The Earthing Store has a new Fall line of earthing shoes available online so visit one of our product pages to see our revised shoe collection.
Hang Out in Your Basement
If the cold weather doesn’t permit you to touch the bare earth, then use concrete as a reasonable substitute. Concrete that is not treated is conductive and if it's painted then it's semi-conductive. Concrete basement floors are connected to the earth and concrete is moist so it is a good medium for earthing to occur. Walk barefoot in the basement or wear conductive socks that are woven with silver.
Touch the SnowSnow is essentially water and touches the earth so playing or being in the snow is a great way to practice grounding. Touch the snow with your bare hands and feet. Throw snowballs with your bare hands, walk in the snow with just your socks. If you're brave, jump out of the hot tub to roll in the snow in just your bathing suit!
Vacation at the BeachStill not convinced that it's easy to practice earthing in the Fall and Winter? Then plan a vacation in the heat! Make your vacation part of taking care of yourself this Fall and Winter as a proactive approach against the cold and flu season. Make sure you vacation somewhere you can walk around in your bare feet. Saltwater and beaches are the best for earthing as you can easily rest and move about with little to no footwear and saltwater is highly conductive.
There are also conductive accessories you can buy such as earthing bed sheets, yoga pads, patches, and wrist bands that can keep you connected all year long.
Hopefully one of these suggestions has sparked your interest and given you an idea of how to continue earthing during the cooler months. Don't forget to check out our line of Fall Earthing Footwear for Men, Women and Children and let The Earthing Store help you stay grounded this Fall and Winter. We strive for timely and courteous customer service, fast and affordable shipping as well as high quality earthing footwear.
The Brown Bear got it all wrong!! 😆 Grounding mats ate plugged into the GROUND plug, not the HOT or NEUTRAL. And yes, its a very awesome idea being in the warm tub with Epsom salt Janie! You are conducting to the water, water to piping, piping to earth! Simple. Also works for apartment buildings and for anyone on high floors. Get those electrons people!! You don’t want to catch the flu. Flu is an electrical disease. Not human to human. And don’t get the vaccine! Who knows what they put in there, besides a few heavy metals.
Would it work to have a piece of sod or a rock inside to stand on inside or does it have to be touching the earth?
A bathtub normally has a metal drain plate where the water leaves the tub. If it’s connected to a metal drain line which runs into the ground under the house, then there is possibility for electrical grounding through that pipe. So saltwater touching the drain touching the metal pipe touching the Earth provides a path for electrons.
Where I live there are about 1 meters of snow and -10 celcius so the walking barefoot will have to wait. I long for the connection though and was thinking about walking outdoors in my indoorslippers. They are made from wool. It should work don’t you think?
Most basement concrete floors are poured over plastic. I would think they would not conduct.
This is a reply to Blanca:
The boots were super cute and were conductive as they had copper dots inside. Unfortunately they are no longer being made, they were a brand called Juil.
Reply to Janie:
Don’t think the bath would work as you would have to somehow be connect to ground outside. Would not recommend any connection through earthing mats or plugs as that would be dangerous with water.
What about an Epsom salts bath in an old iron tub On the third floor of a row house? …Since you said Salt Water was good….(?)
Are the boots in the photo beneath “Wear Fall Earthing Footwear” really earthing boots? If so, where could you find them to purchase?
