Wifi Could be hurting us in our sleep!

Who Sleeps with their phone beside you? Is your phone constantly connected to the internet? What does this mean for you? What are the health impacts?

I’ve attached the article below but to save you the trouble of deciphering it all. I will summarise it all for you.

Two year 9 students from Denmark conducted a scientific experiments in high school to find out how wifi from mobile phones and routers affect cress seeds.

The results found that cress seeds in a room with wifi surrounding it, did not grow at all. Instead they all died. However, the room with cress seeds but no wifi, all started growing.

This means that wifi is harmful to us as organisms.

This is shocking! How many of you sleep next to your phone? Walk around with in in your lap? Caress it like the darling it is?

Although the experiment was conducted informally, there are many articles out there already speaking about the health impacts of wifi.

They range from migranes, sleep disturbances and heart palcipations. Come to think about it, we at NSYL have also felt that nights spent near our phones left us a little odd the next day.

We don’t suggest you do anything until you’ve checked out the article for yourself. But please do, who knows, it might be important in the future.

Wifi radiation is in the form of EMF radiation, the same kind you get from

Binaural Beats for Sleeping!

Breaking Fast asked:

Hahaha love the minion banana song! Great songs! Do you think songs with no singing might work better/relaxing type of music?

(In response to “Music that will guarantee a snooze in seconds!”)

Interestingly, if any of you really want to sleep, an actual catagory of music called “binaural beats” exist. Where the frequency of the stereo audio is so close to each other that they help the brain to relax. It is even used as medicine!

Here is one example of a binaural beat. If you want to listen to more, there are related videos in youtube. Just search “binaural beats”!

 

Lucid Dreaming: Controlling Your Dreams!

Here’s something that will make you can’t wait to fall asleep as students:

Lucid dreaming. What is it? Heard of Inception? Well, it’s not exactly like that but take the idea of being in your dream and being aware that you are dreaming. For example, say if you were dreaming about winning the Tour de France. You are about to cross the line, your legs ache and your forehead is soaked from the sweat beads dripping off your fringe. You suddenly realise that you are dreaming but the dream goes on, you accept it and continue with the scenario (possibly even manipulating it without much effort or realising it) and you finish the race, victoriously popping that champagne bottle.

You’re a star.

Only momentarily though.

After a few moments you wake, knowing that when you were in the dream, you recognised it and just played along with it.

Why is it so fascinating? Think about it! You have the possibility to control your dreams. Think up whatever you want and bam, it’s almost like an alternate universe. Miranda Kerr? BAM! There she is! A pile of cash? BAM! It’s all yours!

Lucid dreaming is actually easily achievable and more common than many people think! Here’s some ways to get you to lucid dream better. Get ready!

 

1.) The most common time to have a lucid dream is a few hours after you wake in the morning.

What can you do? Set 2 alarms. One 3 hours before you have to wake and another when you usually wake. Otherwise, if you are prone to clicking the snooze button or turning off your alarm and sleeping in, you may have been lucid dreaming without even knowing it!

2.) Another tip is to keep a dream journal, as soon as you remember your dreams, write it down.

This may give you some indication as to what you are dreaming about and what aspects of your real life is imitated or triggering these dreams. Look for patterns and similarities!

3.) Give yourself a symbol to indicate you are in reality.

Okay, this one sounds a lot like Leonardo DiCaprio’s little spinning top in Inception. Well, it is similar. He spins it to let himself know whether he is in a dream or in reality because sometimes we are not aware if we are dreaming and as soon as we wake, we forget our dream. Pinch yourself and repeat the words “I’m awake” or even give yourself some kind of action that is personal to you. If you do it enough in real life, over time, when in dreams, you will also recognise to do this and know whether you are dreaming or not. If you are dreaming, it will not be the exact same action, or you feel like you can’t see parts of your hands etc.

Music that will guarantee a snooze in seconds!

Here at No Snooze, you Lose, we are keen to give you anything that will get you guys sleeping better! Tunes are always a good bet!
Here are some songs that are bound to get you snoozing! This is a fun, satirical blog that will hopefully put a smile on your faces!

What are some songs that get your eyelids dropping?

 

1.) 2 hours of Despicable Me’s Banana song:

The first time I watched the shortened version, I thought it was cute. Then on my related videos there popped up this video. It was late at night and obviously past my bed time but it was too good to resist. Boy, was I wrong!

 

2.) The Polygon song: 

I guess you math geeks out there may think this will be great for the class but for older students, I’m sure we all know how many sides a Mr Square has.

 

3.) 10 hours of the Pikachu Song: 

Don’t get me wrong, I love Pokemon! Despite being a girl, I used to play Pokemon cards with my two brothers at home sometimes. The show was so good as well! Oh, don’t forget the gameboys and early Nintendo games! This was just…weird.

 

4.) Nyan Cat: 

know someone who has this as his ringtone. Oh please, if you are reading this, change it! argggh.

 

5.) Justin Bieber’s Baby: 

Need I say more?

Tips that will get that head of yours on that pillow:

1)      Get into a routine! Sure, sometimes you get bogged down by work and there’s always that sneaky You Tube video that is begging to get your attention, but making an effort to stick to a set time each night will also get your life clock feeling naturally drowsy at a certain time.

2)      Limit caffeine after 4pm. Coffee is great, don’t get me wrong, but when it gets to the point of just drinking because you are addicted to it, then you know you’ve got a problem. If you know you have that dreaded assignment that you have to stay up for later tonight, it’s better to take a nap in the afternoon than load up on energy drinks, soft drinks and coffee.

3)      Just close your eyes. Sounds simple, right? Well, sometimes simplicity is the best. There’s a little trick that always works. Avoid distractions and just lie still. Let your toes go numb so you don’t feel them. Work your way up to your knees and so on. Chances are, you will wake up in the morning without realising where you got up to.

4)      Listen to soothing music. Having some background noise that triggers some memory or far off relaxation will help calm your body to a state of sleep.

5)      Don’t do strenuous exercise before bed. We’re not saying you have to find yoga cool but don’t run up and down the stairs before you go to bed because it will just keep your heart rate up.

6)      Avoid heavy meals 4 hours before bedtime. Having a full stomach will sometimes aid in feelings of discomfort when trying to get to sleep.

7)      Drink something warm! Something like warm milk and drinks with no sugar or caffeine will help calm your body.

8)      Take a warm shower! Having the warm water massage against your skin will help relax you just before going to bed. Try to avoid washing your hair though, unless you really have to.
