Sleep Interrupted. Thanks, WiFi

The one night in months I went to bed before my wife, she leaves the WiFi on all night. I wake up at 3:30am feeling terrible and can’t sleep anymore. I walk out of the room and notice that all the panel switches are on.

Great, I thought to myself. All the signals. All. Night. Long.

That one mistake cost me three hours of sleep. I was exhausted and grouchy all day. The next day I had a near medical emergency. I was trembling and so weak I thought I might faint.

For a person with moderate to severe WiFi sensitivity, is how little a nudge it takes to move the needle from a functional day to dysfunctional.

How I recover from too much WiFi exposure

It can take up to 48 hours to recover from a bad day of too much signal exposure. There are a couple things I do that have the greatest impact:

  • Drink extra water
  • Avoid prolonged contact with my iPhone and laptop
  • Sit outside away from the WiFi router
  • Go for a barefoot walk on the beach (toes in the water)
  • Take a midday nap
  • Get in a workout and get the feel-good hormones pumping
  • Go for a second walk in the afternoon away from houses and signals if possible
  • Lie on the grass and look up at the sky

Most days, I’m surrounded by WiFi, radio, electric, and a host of other invisible signals. So that’s why it’s so important to reduce exposure when I sleep at night.

Things I do daily to recover from excessive WiFi signal exposure:

  • Turn off WiFi at bedtime
  • Turn all devices in the bedroom to Airplane Mode
  • Turn off all lights and cover all light-emitting devices
  • Turn off 75% of the breakers in the breaker box

What about you? What do YOU do to recover from excessive signal exposure?

You should try using an external keyboard, wired, and an Earthing Strap to rest your wrist on as you type. There are lots on the market but I can’t recommend any in particular.
