While we all secretly know that our gadgets shouldn’t be in our bedrooms if we want a good night’s sleep, it seems almost impossible these days for some of us to part ways with our devices.
Thankfully, software developers have been working to solve this problem for some time now, with one developer creating a piece of software called Flux (available for Windows, macOS and Linux) that enables you to adjust your display’s colour temperature according to location and time of day. The software claims to help your eyes to rest while reducing eye strain during night-time use.
If all else fails and you can’t get an app installed, there is an alternative and it comes via two Australians. Called Swanwick Sleep, their Brisbane-based business sells amber-coloured lenses that filter artificial blue light from digital devices and modern energy-efficient lighting.
