Blinded by your computer screen?

blackenedbutterfly:

Turning the brightness down doesn’t alleviate that, does it?

Recently, researchers have found evidence that suggests the colour temperature of one’s monitor can effect on your circadian rhythms, headaches, etc.

Obviously, it’s not a cureall, but it goes a long way to help. I’ve been using it for years, and it helps avoid headaches and other annoyances.

Here’s what f.lux has to say:

Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?

Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

During the day, computer screens look good—they’re designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn’t be looking at the sun.

F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

It’s even possible that you’re staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

It’s available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and iPhone/iPad.

I just got this and I think it will help with sleeping patterns a bit more! You can turn it off for colour sensitive work and if you don’t mind having your screen slightly more orange/pink during the night then this is a really cool option!
