If your home is carpeted and you wear shoes and you find that, this time of year, you’re zapping everything you touch—try a heel grounder.

The fabric strap hanging off them can be wrapped loosely around your foot (I always do mine on the outside of socks) and then the grounder fits over the heel of your shoe. They keep you from building up static charge.

This little thing won’t just make you more comfortable—it can save your expensive computer equipment.
