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.
GENIUS! maybe this will help my sleeping problems!
I’ve been using Flux since it came out and it really is the best thing. I used to get horrible migraines at night, even with the lights on. And honestly, I don’t even notice it is running anymore. Sometimes I’ll disable it for a moment just to see if it is doing anything and ajksflkajsfnlkjasdfb my eyes melt. So yeah, I can’t speak highly enough of Flux.
i kinda wish flux were a little more flexible than it is, but i’ve been using it for a week and i can’t imagine turning it off.
Holy shit. This is amazing. I just downloaded it. It’s perfect.
Oh my god. Goodbye headaches.
Bringing this back. Sometimes on my mac, it’ll keep redshifting, so if you notice your screen is a little off, just quit and restart the application, and it’ll be fixed
Oh, wow, I’m so glad this got blogged. I had this on my computers and had long since acclimated to it the point of not even seeing the color change but then I replaced the laptop.
I’ve had this running for maybe five minutes and already my head/eyes feel a thousand percent better.
I started using this approx 28 minutes ago and my head is definitely less achey than normal. Installing it on my work computer in the morning.
Installed and reblogged. No more blurry eyes when I read fanfiction important literary works online!
Ello there darlings
