Sleeping Grounded - Start Here

Sleeping grounded means maintaining your electro-magnetic connection with the surface of the Earth, while you sleep. 

How do you keep your electrical connection with the Earth?  Either by removing the insulating layers between your skin and the surface of the Earth, or by using a conductive tether between the two.

Here is a summary table of the cost, comfort and lifespan for some of the different ways to sleep grounded.


Bare skin contact with the surface of the Earth or through clothes made of natural fibers.
