Did you know that 66% of Americans sleep with their phone next to them at night?
Good sleep is crucial for good health. It can be tempting and comforting to sleep with your cell phone, but doing so is increasing EMF in your bedroom, which can be negatively impacting your sleep. There are many ways to decrease EMF in your bedroom to avoid disrupting your sleep.
Here is everything you need to know about using EMF protection to help eliminate insomnia.
What is EMF?
In simple terms, an electromagnetic field (EMF) is an area of moving electrical charges. You are exposed to EMFs daily. Exposure to high levels of high-frequency EMFs is detrimental to human cells and DNA.
The effects of EMF radiation include suppression of the immune system, anxiety, cancer, insomnia, miscarriage, infertility, and stress.
You will inevitably be exposed to EMF radiation. It can come from power lines, appliances, cell phones, electrical wiring, WiFi routers, tablets, wireless speakers, earbuds, baby monitors, fitness trackers, and other wireless devices.
Typically, you store lamps, cell phone chargers, and alarm clocks near the bed. The electric fields in your room start to increase, which can negatively impact your insomnia. Unfortunately, evolution has not prepared our bodies for such high amounts of EMF radiation exposure.
If you have been having trouble sleeping, the answer may lie in the electrical wiring of your home. There are steps you can take to reduce your exposure during the night to give you a better sleep.
No Electronics in the Bedroom
All electronics are emitting electromagnetic radiation that is damaging to the human body. It’s hard to avoid exposure when you are using your electronics during the day, but they do not have to be near you during the night when you are not using them. If you have wireless items in your room at night, you are exposing yourself to unnecessary radiation.
We recommend making your bedroom a technology-free zone. Yes, that means sleeping without your cell phone nearby. If you must sleep with it in the room, make sure it is in aeroplane mode.
Switch Your Router Off at Night
Most people leave their routers running 24/7, which leads to a lot of non-stop exposure.
There is no reason to keep your router on when everyone in your house is asleep and not in need of WiFi. Take the simple step to turn the router off before bed to decrease your nighttime EMF exposure and improve your sleep.
Use an EMF Bed Canopy
We highly recommend investing in an EMF bed canopy for radiation protection. It acts as a shield made of fabric that defends you from the dangers of EMF when you are in your bed. They are easy to put up and are one of the most effective methods of protecting yourself from EMF radiation.
There is a range of EMF bed canopies you can choose from. You will need to consider the size, fabric, and shape of the canopy you want.
Invest in EMF Shielding Fabrics
EMF shielding fabrics protect your sleeping environment, windows, and body. There are different types of shielding fabrics you can choose from. They have the capability to block EMFs like copper and silver.
First, decide which EMF you want protection from. Then, you can choose whether you want EMF shielding fabrics for clothing, curtains, draperies, bed lining, or floors.
Try EMF Clothing
EMF protective clothing shields your body from harmful EMF radiation. There is a range of EMF clothing, including hoodies, leggings, shirts, tops, and more. These are great if you want to protect yourself when you are away from home.
The previously mentioned methods of EMF protection are great for providing a shield when you are at home, but you are exposed again as soon as you leave your house. There is EMF clothing for men, women, and kids.
Say Goodbye to Dimmer Switches
If you have been thinking about getting dimmer switches, we suggest you do not. Dimmer switches interrupt the flow of electricity, which causes micro surges. This leads to dirty electricity in your home.
If dimmer switches are already installed in your house, you can ask an electrician to switch them out. This step will help to reduce your dirty electricity exposure.
You can create ambience in other ways by using candles or old incandescent light bulbs. Just make sure to avoid using LED lights because they contribute to dirty electricity.
Don’t Use Synthetic Materials
Synthetic materials greatly increase your exposure to static electricity. Try to reduce your use of synthetic materials and instead focus on natural materials in your bedroom. Natural materials such as bamboo, cotton, silk, wool, and linen are natural materials that are a better alternative and will help your insomnia.
We also highly recommend natural bedding material.
Use EMF Monitors
An EMF monitor measures AC electromagnetic fields that are typically emitted from man-made sources. There are many kinds of EMF meters and monitors available.
Fight Insomnia with EMF Protection
EMF exposure is all around us. Using these helpful tips, you will be able to decrease your EMF radiation exposure during the day and night to help combat sleep disruption.
Not only will these help you sleep better, but these methods will also help decrease the other negative health effects of EMF radiation. Whether you choose to try an EMF bed canopy or EMF clothing, or both, you can trust your level of EMF protection will increase.
