You can slash energy-sapping inflammation just by kicking off your shoes. When the body comes into contact with the earth (called “grounding”), it absorbs free electrons from the ground, neutralizing harmful free radicals enough to cut inflammation by 277%! Almost like plugging into a giant battery, this practice replenishes the body with energy. To get the perks, wiggle your toes in the lawn, walk on untreated sand or soil or go for a swim in the ocean or a lake. Can’t go barefoot? Shoes with soft leather soles also conduct free electrons.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
