Grounding at the beach

At BeGrounded we’d love to live by the beach and spend more time wandering barefoot on the sand, and swimming in the sea, absorbing all those amazing electrons!

Perhaps one day we will… but for now we make sure we use our BeGrounded mattress cover each night on our beds to top up our electrons.

Regular trips to the beach also help to connect us back to nature and revitalise our spirits – just like our recent trip to the wonderful Kippy Cottage in Cornwall, just 100 yards or so from Porthtowan beach.

We thought it would be a good idea to explain the benefits of grounding in bodies of water, like the sea, for those new to earthing / grounding to explain why its’s so beneficial and why you feel so great after a sea dip!

All you need to know about being grounded in water…

Not only is being in natural water a great way of being grounded, among many other benefits, it makes you feel alive and ready for whatever comes your way.

Pure water like distilled water has no minerals or salts dissolved in it and so is a poor conductor of grounded energy.

However when certain minerals, such as salt, are added to pure water, then the water becomes conductive.

The following types of water WILL ground you:

• Ocean Water: It’s full of dissolved salts and minerals and represents a superb conductive medium for grounding.

• Lakes, Ponds & Rivers: They generally contain less minerals and salts than the ocean but they are still great conductors.

• Mineral Hot Springs: The high mineral and salt content will ground you….

The natural water is one of the reasons why we seem to feel so refreshed and re-vitalised whenever we go to the beach or swim in the sea on holiday!

And here is a reminder on the positive effects on your body when you absorb electrons in natural bodies of water

  1. Electron Exchange: The Earth’s surface holds a negative electrical charge, and when you come into direct contact with it (like swimming in the sea), you can absorb electrons. The sea, being an excellent conductor, facilitates this electron exchange, which can help neutralize free radicals in the body—a major win for your health!
  2. Reduction of Inflammation: Many scientific studies suggest that grounding can help reduce inflammation in the body. The electrons you absorb from the Earth’s surface, particularly in water like the sea, may contribute to this anti-inflammatory effect.
  3. Improved Sleep: When you’re grounded, your body’s circadian rhythms (your natural sleep-wake cycle) may sync up better with the Earth’s natural rhythms. This can lead to deeper, more restful sleep after some time spent in fresh or salt water.
  4. Stress Reduction: By absorbing Earth’s electrons through water contact, you can help balance cortisol levels (the stress hormone) in your body. This can lead to decreased feelings of stress and anxiety.
  5. Enhanced Energy Levels: Feeling a bit sluggish? Grounding in water, particularly the sea, can give you a natural energy boost. The electron transfer from the Earth to your body is like plugging in to recharge. Many people report feeling revitalized and more energetic after spending time in nature, especially near water.
  6. Mental Clarity and Mood Improvement: The calming influence of water combined with the electron exchange can lift your spirits and clear your head.
  7. Natural Pain Relief: Some studies indicate that grounding can help alleviate chronic pain. Water grounding, such as in the sea, may have additional benefits due to the minerals present in seawater, which can complement the pain-relieving effects of electron absorption.

So, next time you have the chance to take a dip in the sea or simply walk barefoot on the beach, go for it!

Connecting with Earth’s electrons through water can be a powerful way to boost your overall health and well-being.
