Eliminating Electropollution from the Bedroom.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about electromagnetic radiation and it’s effects on the body. I can’t remember which book I was reading that got me started on this… 8 Weeks maybe.. or Staying Healthy With Nutrition by Elson Haas… I’ll have to look it up again and report back. Anyway… whatever I was reading was talking about removing electromagnetic fields from the bedroom entirely. I became anxious almost immediately. I didn’t think about having to buy a new alarm clock (one that runs on batteries instead of plugging in) or moving my charging cell phone into another room. The rapid heartbeat was caused by one thought only… I can’t sleep without tv.

Now this is bad. I know that falling asleep to television disturbs sleep cycles. I read that years ago. Now it’s not just my sleep cycles, but my cells that are being disturbed. The body is super vulnerable at night, and those signals are nasty little disruptive beasts. So I think it’s time to try. I’ll be leaving my computer in my office tonight and trying to sleep without it. This could get rough. I think I’ll start early. Around 9… some tea and a book. Try to “wind down” and get to sleep on time. Long two days ahead to get to the weekend and I could really use some sleep. Might be a bad time to do this, but when would be a good time? Never.  So now. More later on electromagnetic fields and seasonal depression…

Lesson Learned

I’ve been having a really hard time keeping up with this. I want to do the 8-Week Program so that I will have an opinion if anyone ever asks me how I feel about it, and I’m motivated even more by the weight that I gained while finishing grad school. But I’m having a hard time committing. I can’t seem to find the time. I expressed my frustration with this fact to my chiropractor recently and she made a great point. I’m experiencing exactly what my clients would – I WANT to change, but it’s hard. I’m getting frustrated and considering giving up. So I think I should work through it. Take a deep breath and try again.

I’ve made a goal schedule that, while it might be a little bit of a stretch, isn’t completely outrageous. It involves waking up at 6am, walking, having a light breakfast while blogging, and putting in a nice long work day. I’ve allotted time for cooking dinner and working on projects everyday. Weekends are more free. I still want to be able to travel down to Brooklyn for the weekend and eat big meals with my friends. But I want to take it easy during the week. Build a routine.

What is this now… take 3?

 

My gift for trying again. Let’s do it together!
