Ditch the electronics….

Tired? No focus? Did you know that your technology has a large part to do with it? You could be “sleeping” enough hours, but still seem restless, and it has to do a lot with how plugged in you are throughout the day. Technology puts your body into flight or fight stress mode which imposes great stress! The more revved up you are during the day, the harder it is for you to not only wind down at night, but get into a deep state of REM. Electronics also emit a EMR (electromagnetic radiation) which again does not allow you to sleep as effectively as you might like. 

How can you change this?

1. Turn off all electronics at least an hour before sleep. Give your brain some time to come “down”

2. Move your cell phone out of the bedroom or away from your bed

3. Try to limit how much technology you use throughout the day. 

I know its hard to fathom limiting our technology when we live in such a high powered and fast moving world, but if you are having trouble feeling rested, this could be a good place to start! Image
