To me, this all sounds like preparation for a nap.

Grounding, for me anyways, is more active. Eating is probably the fastest and most convenient way to ground yourself. It brings all your body's energy and focus back to the center of the body (which is why fasting is one of the common ways to attain an altered state of consciousness). Smoking tobacco will do it, too, but most people aren't appreciative of being told to go smoke a cigarette.

Going outside and making a physical connection to the earth is another way to ground - feeling that solid stability under your feet. There's a pretty common grounding meditation involving visualizing and feeling yourself being a tree, firmly rooted in the ground, receiving nourishment from the earth and energy from the sun cycling through you & into the earth. You can also use a touchstone or piece of iron or other heavy metal to ground.
My mother's boyfriend's dad Mark showed me a spot in the yard thats surrounded by large plants, and overall is the best place to meditate or ground in the yard that I can use today. And no, I didn't reach a meditated state last time. Mark himself said that takes practice.

Harbringer of death and slaughter -
(next time round you'll be the slain)
Refuse the dying man your water -
(thirst when you come back again).
Don't spare the rod don't spoil the child -
(I hope you like to take a beating)
Feed your face while others starve -
(you'd better learn to not miss eating.) - Karma lesson from the song 'thread of evermore' by Skyclad.
