A while back a wrote asking if anyone had tried Earthing and what their experiences were like. Didn't get much of a response, but wanted to follow up with my personal experiences.
I went ahead and bought the small mat, not the 1/2 sheet like I planned on buying. My husband is fussy and I didn't want to invest in something that would go on his side of the bed too that he could complain about. The mat is only about 10" x 20". I place it under my pillow (I am a side sleeper) so this works well for me. I place my hand on top of the mat, but under my pillow. You are suppose to have direct skin contact with the mat, or sheet. Here is what I have experienced.
I definitely noticed that I am sleeping more deeply, and I usually can go back to sleep if my cat wakes me up pawing at the door (for me this is a really big deal, I have a really big problem falling asleep, staying asleep, and not feeling rested).
I have been falling asleep much faster, and I think I'm getting to the REM part of sleep.
I am not tossing and turning like I normally do, I have awaken in the same position that I fell asleep in. Also, I haven't had a problem with the hip pain that was stopping me from getting to sleep in the first place.
Also, something I didn't expect I have noticed that my congestion which is off the charts this year with my allergies is much less severe since I started Earthing. I can actually breathe when I'm laying down!
I will continue to Earth as part of my routine.
