We rely on our devices to communicate, but the electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) our cellphones and laptops emit can trigger fatigue, brain fog, and insomnia. That’s because EMFs increase the body’s production of free radicals that damage DNA and other cellular proteins. The easy fix? Holding your phone 1 inch from your ear when you’re talking cuts EMF exposure by 75% say scientists at the University of Utah. Also smart: stashing it in a handbag rather than your pocket and leaving it in the kitchen overnight.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
