5 Tips for Sleeping Better in your Apartment- A Guest Post!
I rarely feature guest bloggers, but this month I’ve included a feature from a friend James Finn, who is the one and only consultant in New York City (!) helping clients look at how the devices in their house, their electrical system, TVs, Wifi, etc all are impacting their health and quality of SLEEP.
You may not know that prior to real estate I was actively involved in concert and music production; I am keenly aware at the vast amount of electrical signals flying through the air in New York.
James has something interesting for us to think about, and it’s definitely worth sharing. Apparently, this is part of the regular real estate conversation on the West Coast, but we gritty New Yorkers haven’t caught on.
Do you have a place in your life where you sleep horribly? How about a place where you sleep incredibly well? Finn firmly believes and can demonstrate that it often has to do with ELF (Extremely Low-Freqency Radiation) or the lack thereof, in your apartment. We all want to sleep better, especially when we’re all working longer hours!
If you’re intrigued, I’d encourage you to reach out to James, by going to his website. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, and has been known to sort out health problems VERY quickly. It’s shocking (pun intended)!
Without further ado, here’s James…..

Things We’d Never Think Of
The last thing that most of us would ever think of while we’re trying to decide where to position the furniture in our wonderful new apartment that Scott Harris and his team at Brown Harris Stevens just helped us land us is how far away from a dimmer switch we need to place our favorite chair.
Most of us would never wonder if the lamps, alarm clocks, gadgets, computers and devices we keep at our bedside are having an effect on the quality of our sleep. This is more than just turning off your phone a couple of hours before you are ready for bed.
Some of you may be old enough to remember your parents impatiently cautioning for the umpteenth time, “Children, please don’t sit so close to the television set!” We’d move back thinking that this new viewing spot just wasn’t as much fun.
Unwittingly, our parents were just trying to protect us from the very real and proven hazards of ELF (Extremely Low-Frequency Radiation.) This energy has been proven in thousands of verifiable studies to cause us all kinds of harm; from cancer and neurological disease to infertility, memory loss, chronic fatigue syndrome. and depression.
You might say,”But, Jim, we don’t have televisions with tubes in them anymore. What’s the big deal?”
Yes. That’s right. Most of us don’t, but we do have other things in our home that can emit very high levels of ELF radiation. The good news is that it only takes us moving a couple feet away from a high ELF source to become safe.
Here are just a few quick tips to help make you and your loved ones much safer in your home from ELF:
1. Place your comfortable chair a few feet away from any light/dimmer switch or wall outlet.
2. When using a kitchen appliance such as a blender or toaster, stand a couple feet away once you’ve pushed the ON button.
3. Toss out that old microwave oven. If the seals are worn, then you are literally slow cooking your neurons.
4. Move those electrical cords under your desk as far away from your feet as possible.
5. Avoid sitting near your circuit breaker box.
I encourage you to become more aware and informed of the possible ill-health effects of all electromagnetic fields. There’s enough conclusive and verified proof out there that we should all start implementing ways to reduce our exposure.
A little knowledge can go a long way towards improving your health and/or preventing a serious illness.
