Research has shown nowhere light cast by bright screens (like the one on your laptop or mobile device) reduce our ability to fall asleep fast, and keep our energy throughout the day. This light actually tricks our brain into believing it’s evening, which throws off our circadian rhythm, but that’s a scientific query that is better left for googling.
Initially, we had f.lux, an app that aimed to remove the blue from our screens that kept us up during the night. In newer Windows 10 builds, the functionality is baked in to a feature called Night Light. Here’s how to activate it.
1. Open the Start Menu.
2. Click on the gear icon to bring in the Settings Menu.
3. Choose System.
4. Select Display.
5. Toggle the Night light switch to On.
6. Click Night light settings to regulate the amount of blue displayed, or determine the time for Night Light to activate automatically.
