But when I also tell folks there are other eco-friendly ways to get grounded — ways that utilize items you already own, for example: making …

The Golden Ratio of Our Beautiful Human Body, Both Inside and Out

      You have probably heard about the Golden Ratio (in math it’s known as Phi) before — it is a pervasive pattern in both nature as well as in the natural design of our human anatomy. Even if you didn’t know it was called the Golden Ratio, you’ve probably seen figures like this one — first described by Leonardo da Vinci — that show our body’s torso proportions, limb proportions, facial proportions, finger and toe proportions, external ear proportions, etc… are all designed according to this beautiful, reproducible mathematic principle:       This ratio is a common …

All The Health Benefits Of Nature, But In An Urban Setting? Yep, Here’s How

      I’m so excited to tell you about an amazing medical study today that is super relevant to my favorite holistic healing modality of all time — grounding. This fabulous study suggests that adding even a very small greenspace to an urban setting boosts immune function in a measurable and meaningful way.

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 …

Hearing Birds Sing Might Be Just As Important To You As Your Next Paycheck, Here’s Why

    More evidence that Mother Nature can boost your happiness like nothing else can… a new study suggests that bird diversity is as important to life satisfaction as an income is. This study, published in Ecological Economics on Nov 2020, found that not only is happiness correlated with local bird diversity, but a 10% boost in bird diversity actually increases happiness to a similar magnitude as a 10% boost in income does! We’ve known for a while that animals improve our mood, health, and even boost longevity (I’ve blogged about how pets can do all of this and more …
