3. SLEEP SOUNDLY
For many people, the cellphone follows us all throughout the day, even into the bedroom. Many people place their cellphone at their bedside table before catching their nightly z’s and think nothing of it. But many experts believe that this not only disturbs sleep, but can worsen some of the potential health risks. If you sleep an average of 6-10 hours a night with your phone within a 6′ radius from your head, then you’re only worsening your exposure. Again, either turn your phone off, or put it on airplane mode and use it as your alarm clock like I do. Similarly, wifi routers should stay out of the bedroom as well, and some sleep experts even recommend removing electronics from the bedroom altogether. You don’t have to go overboard, but begin thinking about creating a space that is ideal for sleeping, and relegate electronics to other parts of the home.
4. REV UP YOUR TEXTING FINGERS!
As obvious as it may seem, sending a text to someone requires a lot less signal power than calling your friends and family. So when it’s appropriate, opt for sending texts instead of spending those extra minutes talking on the phone. Although you might seem like an automatron to older generations, texting is the way to go if you’re aiming to avoid unnecessary radiation exposure.
