It’s the time of year when everyone’s talking about New Year’s Resolutions. I’m on the fence whether I think they are good or not — all the more power to ya if you can make changes to improve your life but I find some people get down when they don’t follow through with them (and sometimes they have more than they can handle so they feel like a failure).
Here’s a great article, from Dr. Robert Oexman, I read on the Huffington Post (via www.kriscarr.com on Facebook) regarding how the quality of sleep can affect all areas of our lives. He mentions that this time of year is the best time to work on getting better sleeps and also mentions:
It should be no surprise that people across the world are committing less time for sleep and when they do sleep, it’s poor quality. I’m certain you have caught yourself saying, “I am just too tired to ________” — and simply fill in the blank. This lack of sleep has been shown to impact motivation, concentration, energy, and weight gain/loss. Conversely, making a commitment to get the proper quantity and quality of sleep can help you get focused, feel motivated, and have energy to achieve your goals.
That’s reason enough to focus on your sleep! We’ve been making some adjustments to our bedroom to make it better “equipped” for good night sleeps. The last thing we have to do is remove our TV (even though we don’t watch it in there, it’s still good to remove it, along with a few other simple adjustments, as this site mentions:
Anxiety and Electromagnetic Frequencies
Recently, I did some research on how we are affected by electromagnetic fields.
My inquiry was prompted by the profound calm I experienced when the electricity in my house was cut off in a winter storm. I began experimenting by turning off the circuit breaker to the bedroom.
Both my husband and I were impressed by how tranquil we felt. My dreams became more colorful, vivid and inspired. Our sleep was more deep and restful. Being in the bedroom without live electricity running through the walls felt, as my husband said, ‘like camping out in the woods.’
Electromagnetic energy fields are a form of toxic pollution. They frequently interfere with our vital energy and health, including mental and emotional health.
Anxiety detox solutions can include minimizing use of cell phones, microwave ovens and other noxious forms of what is sometimes called ‘e-smog.’
