Why Hug A Tree & Stand on Mother Earth?
The Benefits of Tree-Hugging
Hugging a tree is a way to connect with nature and has been shown to have positive effects on mental health. According to a study, hugging a tree can release oxytocin, the “love hormone,” which can have a calming effect on your mind, body & soul, reduce stress and tension. It is also believed that humans naturally like to be around other living things, and being in nature can relieve symptoms of ADHD in children.
In fact, there is a term called “nature-deficit disorder” which means that modern humans have become disconnected from nature through our daily activities and this disconnect has had negative consequences in terms of mental and physical health.
How to hug a tree-
Check for spider webs first and do not disturb the web. Then ants, you may need to pick another tree.
Take your shoes off. Encircle it with your arms while gently pressing your cheek to the trunk. Squeeze, Sigh deeply, breathe deep and slow. Be at one with your tree. As you breathe ask the tree a question. Keep breathing until the tree answers your question. If the tree does not answer you may have asked the wrong question and need to meditate more on the subject.
Benefits of Standing On The Earth Barefoot
Studies have found that earthing or grounding is the act of bringing the earth’s free electrons into your body. These electrons will:-
- Reduces chronic pain
- Reduces muscle damage
- Reduces Inflammation
- Reduces stress
- Helps people to sleep better
- Improves their circulation
- Will lower their blood pressure and more.
- Will Increase Happiness Chemicals.
Mounting evidence suggests that the Earth’s negative potential can create a stable internal bioelectrical environment for the normal functioning of all body systems. Moreover, oscillations of the intensity of the Earth’s potential may be important for setting the biological clocks regulating diurnal body rhythms, such as cortisol secretion. It is also well established that electrons from antioxidant molecules neutralize reactive oxygen species (ROS, or in popular terms, free radicals) involved in the body’s immune and inflammatory responses. The National Library of Medicine’s online resource PubMed lists 7021 studies and 522 review articles from a search of “antioxidant + electron + free radical”
