Well, things like concrete and shoes can interfere with how your body absorbs the earth’s vibrational frequencies.

HOW CAN YOU PRACTICE GROUNDING?
It’s easy to do grounding if you live near a forest, park, beach, or even if you have a backyard. But how can you do it if you live in a big city without easy access to nature?
If you’re lucky enough to live near the beach, earthing is as simple as going barefoot in the sand as often as possible. Start with whatever works for you and your schedule. I usually try to get in 30 minutes a day, but some days I only manage 15 minutes.
In order for it to be most effective, you can’t wear shoes or socks because your skin needs to be in contact with the sand for best results.
If you live near a park or natural preserve, try to occasionally walk barefoot on the soil.
Another option is to play in the grass in your backyard at home.
You can also buy earthing mats or sheets to use indoors. These are usually sold as kits and don’t require dirt or soil. They look like doormats, but they’re electrically conductive.
