Have you ever been lead in bed browsing on your laptop and wondering why you still aren’t tired? Well this could be caused by something called blue light. Blue light tricks our brain into thinking its still the middle of the day, this make it harder to fall asleep. This program called F.lux is essentially going to help you sleep. F.lux makes the colour of your computer screen adapt to the time of the day. It will become warmer at night and light sunlight throughout the day. F.lux will make your computer screen look like the room you are in. So when the sun sets, it will make your computer look like your indoor lights. You can even tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have in your house and whereabouts you live. From then on f.lux will do the work for you, automatically.
