Hate It but It’s Gotta Be Done –
I Decided to Ditch the
Electronics in My Bedroom

About a year ago a website I frequently read connected me with Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. I was so impressed with her work on the effects of magnesium deficiencies and what you can do about  them, that I purchased her health improvement program. Dr. Dean said that if you even do 20% of the things she suggests in her Completement Now! program, that your health will improve. So, I’ve been working with her supplement suggestions and do find a steady stabilization of my energy levels so far.

One of the things I’ve resisted, however, is moving my computer, television, and other electronic devices out of my bedroom. I have a habit of waking up in the middle of the night and working, and having the tech around seemed convenient. But, I don’t sleep well. I wake up every 2 or 3 hours all night long. Then, I feel tired all day long. So, when Dr. Dean made the following suggestion:

Remove all unnecessary electronic devices from your bedroom. Your sleeping chamber is definitely NOT a place for televisions, stereos, video game units, sewing machines and
computers — all of which may continue to produce EMFs long after they have been
deactivated.

I started thinking about moving my office out of my bedroom in order to sleep better.

To tell you the truth, it’s been a long process. I felt very resistant to separating my work life from my sleep life, since I have workaholic tendencies. But, in the end, I really want to continue to make improvements in my wellness, vitality, and resilience. I can’t do that without a solid sleep routine, and I can’t sleep well, when my body has to deal with all the extra vibes in my room.

In order to facilitate my decisionmaking process, we moved the office into a room of its own. We brought portable office furniture upstairs and moved the battery box from my room into the office. Today I decided to move my television out the bedroom into the office, since covering it at night with silk didn’t seem to make a difference to my poor sleep patterns.

So, now I have a work space that is separate from my sleep space, and I feel that that’s a good thing. Even psychologically, when I switch rooms from meeting personal needs to working, it’s a wonderful change. My cats come into my room and cuddle, without me trying to type while they are in my lap. When I’m working in the office, I can put my laptop down and shift gears when I’m needed for other things in the house.

In summary, your body is telling you all the time whether what you are doing is working for it or not. My poor sleep patterns were a message that I needed to sleep in my bedroom and work in my office. This awareness and acting on this awareness gives my body the message that I’m listening and honoring its wellness path.

I’ll keep you posted on how my sleep improves, once we physically get the television moved out of my bedroom (We are waiting for the folk to come and rewire the receiver.).
