The first big snowpocalypse has hit the East Coast, and it's safe to say winter is officially here. With this new season comes a beautiful moment to get grounded. But what does that really mean?
Grounding is a state of being emotionally and physically balanced with the earth and your body. When you are grounded, you can identify more emotions, see more signs, and feel like you have more space to live and breathe. Staying grounded regardless of the energy or chaos around you means standing your ground and knowing your truth.
Just as bears hibernate in the winter, the chillier season is a chance for us to go inward and get reflective with ourselves. Winter sets the foundation for the rest of the year, representing a moment to plant metaphorical seeds that we'll harvest in the months to come. I don’t know about you, but I want to be sure I get those seeds deep in the ground so they don't fly off into the air!
This winter, fellow health coach Leslie McDonald and I created a group of guides to help you get grounded using food, meditation mantras, crystals, and more, called Rooted With Love. Here are three of our favorite tips for connecting to yourself and your planet this season.
