Need to get grounded, but not sure where to start?
I’ve compiled this list of 30 ways to ground yourself for natural healing and rejuvenation. Each person grounds differently, and what works for you, may very well not work for the next person. There are so many different ways to connect and this list of 30 includes my favorites. Enjoy!
