Anyone that works on their computer at night on a regular basis may find it hard to get to sleep afterwards. 

That blueish light coming from the computer screen especially at night has been shown to keep people from getting to sleep afterwards. 

Anyone experiencing this sleeping after use problem or anyone wanting to reduce the potential for eye strain from your computer screen should checkout a free app called ‘Flux’. 

The Flux download will automatically warm up the computer screen at sunset and returns it to normal after sunrise because it will know the time zone of your computer. 

It lets you adjust the warmth of the display at night or manually turn it off whenever you’re doing color sensitive work. 

It may take a bit to get used to, but once you see the brightness of the normal setting on your display, you will understand why this change can help. 

Flux is free and available for Windows and Mac users at
