As said above "ground state" means the lowest energy state that an atom can have and an excited state is when the atom of molecule reaches a higher energy state than its original ground state. Hope this helps!
in really simple terms, the ground state is the most stable and has the lowest energy. It is the electron configuration we are used to writing, where configuration of the electrons match up with the configuration of the periodic table.
