Health Tips - Electricity in Bedrooms

 
Electricity in Bedrooms

People tend to live in a sea of electronics, computers, radiation and wireless technology. These have a big impact on the electrical field of the body. Bodies need a rest from this type of interference to go into a repair or healing state at night. In order to survive well and keep from premature aging, bodies must be allowed to fully repair during sleep. Electrical stress can contribute to headaches, insomnia, fatigue, and all manner of illness.

Ideally in your bedroom, you would:

  • Use a battery operated alarm clock instead of an electric alarm clock. If you must use an electric clock, place it over six feet from your bed.
  • Take out all unnecessary machines such as computers, printers, T.V.’s, radios, stereos etc. (Remind yourself of what the purpose of a bedroom is by reading Purpose of a Bedroom). If they must be in the room for any reason, aim for six feet away from your bed.
  • Never use electric blankets. There are so many cozy wool and cotton comforters to use instead!
  • Keep any heating or massage equipment unplugged during sleep.
  • Try not to place anything electrical near your bed except for a lamp that can be dimmed.
  • Never use waterbeds as they require heaters.
  • Arrange bedroom furniture so that the head of beds are against walls with no major electronics on the other side of the wall in the next room. As the other side of the wall is inches away, look for any electric panel, electric meter, refrigerator, freezer, television, computer, air conditioning unit or any other device that would produce electromagnetic stress during sleeping hours.

Before moving into a living space, have the neighborhood and building checked for high levels of electromagnetic and wireless radiation, such as from high tension wires. Once in your living space, handle any electrical problems as soon as you notice them.
