How to Ground Your Body (Part 2)

Last September, I posted about one of the most important tools in my toolbox: grounding the body – a wonderful way to release energy, stabilize yourself, and replenish your personal space.

As you become more grounded, you’ll start to notice that it makes the diabetic aspects of your life run more smoothly. There will be spikes and lows as ever, but you may find yourself experiencing more stable blood sugars as you more easily release stress. 

Even if this doesn’t happen for you, being grounded, and a little bit amused, will make it easier for you to alertly and calmly make the choices involved in caring for your diabetic body.

See the new blog post on my intuitive services site for part 2 about how to ground your body. I include some asides on how I apply this tool as a person with diabetes throughout my day.

(I used to put up two versions of these intuitive posts, one tilted more toward people with diabetes here, and a slightly more basic version on my intuitive services website, but I've since heard that some search engines don't like one to put up similar posts in two places. So I'm trying something new by linking you, dear reader, to the new post.) 

How you might feel when you first sit down to ground:

Luckily, you'll use this tool for yourself, not anyone else. You don't have to be perfect when you do it, and you'll feel a lot better when you're done!
