  I can think of no better way to set the stage for a brand new year, 2023, to be full of expression and growth than to simplify and declutter at the start of the year. You need space to expand, it’s as simple as that. Clutter stops growth and expansion, and it affects your health, both mentally and physically.

Surfaces You Ignore Daily That Ground You (And The Ones That Won’t)

    I recently received a great question from a reader asking me to demonstrate with a ground test meter that I was truly grounded while touching cement. Good idea. Not only do I show you that you absolutely are grounded when touching cement in the video below, but I show you 15 different surfaces — besides just grass — that you probably walk by each day and didn’t know could ground you. At the end, I show you the very strongest way to ground out of them all — yes, an even stronger ground connection than standing barefoot on …
