An Earthing mat (otherwise known as a grounding mat) is a small mat which conducts the earth’s natural energy via an electric outlet to give you all the benefits of earthing without going outside or making any changes to your daily routine.
These versatile mats can be used almost anywhere and are a great way to practice earthing while you’re indoors whether you’re working, resting or playing.
How do you use an Earthing Mat?
To use an earthing mat simply plug it into an electrical socket without switching it on and place it either on the floor and rest your bare feet on it or on a desk and rest your hands or wrists on it. You could also place it on your lap and rest your arms while you read or scroll your social media feeds for example.
