Exposure to nature has an immense, positive effect on the wellbeing of the human body, including on healthy brain function. Numerous studies have shown improved physical and mental health from time spent in nature, including through the healing practice of grounding. Grounding, or touching the human body to the earth outside, is a holistic health practice that has shown promising whole-body benefits that include neurological benefits. This review article examines the different cognitive and mental health benefits from grounding the body and suggests possible pathways for the earth to support neurologic health, improve mood, and even support intrinsic brain functions such as decision making, mental clarity, and deeper contextual understandings.
