Positive Ions Disturb Our sleep Pattern
The advent of technology has brought so much to our lives. We have instant access to information and people 24 hours a day, and we can work from our homes, cars and even our beds.
Have you ever found yourself surfing the web or answering an email while right before turning out the light? Do you set your phone’s alarm and then put it on your nightstand for the night?
These seemingly innocuous rituals might be interrupting your sleep.
Each electronic device emits positive ions, little invisible charged bits of energy that flood your environment and send stimulating signals to your brain and body long after you put them in “hibernate” mode. These positive ions can bombard your body at a frequency up to 20 times higher than the fastest brainwave and make it very hard to get a good night’s rest.
Where do salt lamps factor in?
There are so many benefits of salt lamps, with users reporting respiratory ailment improvement to attention disorder cures, but even the healthiest people can benefit from them.
One of the most popular benefits of salt lamps is the fact that they are a natural source of negative ions. Salt is an ionic substance and it is a hygroscopic material, which means it attracts water. When you turn on a salt lamp, the light bulb gently heats the salt, causing the moisture on its surface to evaporate and release negative ions in the process. Using a salt lamp in your bedroom ensures a constant supply of negative ions to counteract the positive ions, and helps restore peace and calm to your surroundings.
Using a gorgeously hued pink salt lamp as a nightlight can set a calming mood and bring focus, even aid with meditation- which can help alleviate anxiety and contribute to a better night’s sleep. The negative ions will neutralize positive ions all night long, which enables the body and brain to thoroughly relax and restore, so you wake up refreshed.
Even if you can’t completely unplug from technology each night, plugging in a salt lamp can make a big difference in helping you get to sleep and stay asleep, so you can start each day refreshed and recharged.
