Why be "grounded" - Deepstash

Why be "grounded"

Feel grounded basically means two things:

  1. Feeling connected with your body/ and or the earth
  2. Being fully in the present

It means being in the moment and just experiencing the world as it is rather than through memories or a filter. You are living your life with intent and purpose rather than just passively watching your life go by. 

Being grounded will also help you to:

  1. Quiet and clear your mind
  2. Calm and balance your emotions
  3. Recharge your energy

Simply ask yourself: How do I feel right now?

A bedtime routine will help you sleep
  • It can calm an overactive mind.
  • You can think, plan and prepare for tomorrow, so you don’t lie awake worrying about details when you go to bed.
  • By repeating a regular pattern, you can train your body and mind to unwind ready for bed.
  • Many activities people do in the evening can be overstimulating. So a bedtime routine helps you avoid doing those things and relax instead.
