Understanding the sources of EMF pollution and…
…learning how to reduce your exposure is a lot to absorb. It’s a big topic and it can feel overwhelming knowing where to start. I get it. I’ve been there and I’m still there today with my family.
And let’s be realistic. Our society has a widespread reliance on wireless technology.
Most people carry a smartphone or a tablet. I’m not asking you to give up yours (although, it would be great if you could!) Rather I’m offering a few options to use your technology wisely.
Here are a few simple tips that you can put into practice to begin your journey toward a low-EMF lifestyle:
10 Tips to reduce EMF exposure:
- Use a wired headset or speaker phone every time you use your mobile phone. Do your best to keep your mobile phone away from your head at all times.
- Turn off your household wireless network (WIFI) at night or when not in use.
- Call your utility to swap your wireless “smart meter” for an analog meter.
- Put your smartphone on “airplane mode” (not “do not disturb” mode) if you use it as a morning alarm or use a battery-powered alarm clock.
- Use an Ethernet cable with your computer (instead of WIFI).
- If your child uses a smartphone or tablet, download all content (like videos) first via a wired connection and activate airplane mode before use.
- Opt for a wired baby monitor, not a wireless one.
- Use a landline with a corded (not a cordless) phone.
- Keep your laptop and your tablet out of your lap.
- If you use your tablet as an e-reader, download via a wired connection and enable airplane mode before use.
One more bit of wisdom is to remember that proximity is an important factor in exposure.
Generally, the farther away you are from an EMF source, the lower your exposure.
