5 Simple Ways to Get Grounded

The phrase, “get grounded” is used often, but what does it actually mean?

How do you know if you are grounded? When considering your energy, the act of being grounded means your root chakra is balanced and healthy. This is often accompanied by a feeling of strong, earth connectivity. You’ll feel stable, and confident. You know you’re protected and safe. Your entire body is at ease.

A few ways to know if you’re not feeling grounded are if you:

  • Can’t finish projects or focus
  • Feel like your nerves are fried or are spacey
  • Questioning things more than usual
  • Difficulty with communication
  • An impulse to hoard things and money
  • Strong urge to be physical or go outside

If you’re not feeling grounded, there are several things you can do to find that confidence and positive energy, and some of them are quick, easy tricks!

Here Are 5 Simple Ways to Get Grounded.

  1. Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy has been used for thousands of years around the world. The action of deep breathing to clear your mind accompanied by the calming smells of natural oils triggers a response from your emotions, steadies your heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and increases memory.

  1. Get Organized

When we’re feeling overwhelmed or overworked, we have a tendency to move faster instead of slower. The more helpful response is to slow down and get organized. Take stock of what is truly important in your life and clean out the rest. This may mean saying no to activities, plans, or additional work.

“You cannot have branches without roots.”

  1. Mental Visualization

Take a step back and picture where you’re going in life, in your year, or even in your day. Visualize where you want to be, how you want to be feeling, and the people around you. Your mind only knows what it is told and if you continue to feed it with positive, self-serving imagery, emotions, and gratitude, you will quickly find yourself exactly where you want to be.

  1. Physical Grounding

Take a walk on the earth, barefoot perhaps. Connect to the physical ground with physical touch. Try yoga, go for a run, or nap in the shade of a mighty oak, as long as you are touching the earth, you will feel a sense of peace and ease.

  1. Listen to Music

One of the most powerful healers for our mental state is music. We connect on a physical level with movement and dance. We connect on an emotional level with songs for motivation, energy, excitement, and even anger. Music helps us sleep more soundly and breathe more deeply.

You may also try the simple act of giving someone a hug. The power of human touch is often incredibly healing. And we cannot talk about grounding without giving meditation its fair dues. This is an increasingly common practice that goes hand in hand with the power of visualization, setting intentions, and focusing on your breath, all with the goal of grounding yourself in your roots.
