🚶♀️ Early Morning Grounding Walk 🚶♂️
Walking Barefoot in the Woods? Oh, yeah! Sept 30th at 7:30 AM.
Guided by staff member, Jessica Whitehorn, we'll start our day off by taking a walk through Audubon Acres barefoot! This will be an easy walk as we get acquainted with walking outside sans shoes. There will be times for quiet and meditative moments to enjoy the beauty of nature and soak up all of its health benefits.
"Grounding—also known as earthing—is an ancient practice. Essentially, it’s making direct skin contact with natural ground or water to restore the body to a state of homeostasis after dealing with the physical stresses of everyday life.
It might sound like too-good-to-be-true pseudoscience, but the research to back up this practice is robust. Dr. Stephen Sinatra, a pioneer in the study of grounding and its many benefits, has noted both long-term and “rapid effects achieved by what appears to be the body’s broad uptake and use of electrons received from Earth”—primarily linked to a significant decrease in inflammation."
