Question Static Shock

Now that the heat is on I guess the house is a little dryer than usual and the static shocks that I constantly get are starting to wear out my fingertips(LOL)
The shocks are pretty strong, although the pretty blue color is kind of nice.
I have no rugs, it's al wood floors.
Anything I can do to eliminate this or do I need to wear rubber gloves?

A little more humidity would probably help. Are you wearing socks that help create this? Good luck.

Static electric shocks can be minimized by what you wear, by the type of flooring installed, and by the amount of moisture in the air. A whole house humidifier can help with the moisture issue.
