Nothing beats being in direct skin contact with grass, sand, or soil, but for those whose circumstances make this difficult to experience on a regular basis, there are grounding sheets that can be plugged into the grounding hole of a 3-prong socket, allowing for indoor grounding while resting or sleeping:
