Touch grass

Touch grass is used on the Internet to tell someone to go outside. The phrase also implies that the person the insult is directed to spends too much time online, and they physically need to get outside and “touch some grass” to reconnect with the real world.

It can also mean “take a seat,” as in “calm down” or be less eager.
