What on Earth is Earthing?

This time, I’m posting a 7-minute VLOG instead of my usual article. This is all about earthing, also known as grounding. If you want to know what it is and know about its health benefits, then watch this short, sweet, fun, and informative video! I recorded this video with a good friend of mine - Maggie. If you like what you see in this video, then subscribe to our newly created YouTube channel "Shine-high Wellness Sis". This channel is for Chinese and English speakers who want to learn how to live in a way that’s nourishing, fun & uncomplicated!

We recorded this short video after our yoga session in the park. Maggie is not only my good friend but also she is a wellness explorer and advocate. She focuses on teaching functional medicine and holistic nutrition to Chinese speakers.  Her mission is to empower people with knowledge to reach a life of optimal health and vitality. To find out more about Maggie's work visit her WeChat/Weibo: 青墨健康 GreenMojo.

I hope you're having an amazing day filled with love, laughter, and loads of negative ions!
