Depending on the dictionary you use, you might not find this word in it. You’ll most likely find “ground” and see that “being grounded” means a ship that is stuck and has hit the bottom of the sea and cannot move, or a plane that is grounded, meaning that it is stuck on the runway, waiting to be allowed to take off.

In fact, a more common, everyday usage of this word is to describe someone who is sensible and has a good understanding of what is really important in life. So, do you know anyone you would describe as being grounded? How about you, would you describe yourself as being grounded? If not, why not? How could you be more grounded?
