You may have been using Windows 10 for some time now, but it’s likely that you haven’t mastered all of its features just yet.
If you, like so many others, use your computer late at night, before (or even in) bed, then you may have found that it throws off your sleep cycle. Despite being tired when you got into bed, after staring at the backlit screen for a few hours, you’re not as tired anymore.
This has to do with melatonin – a chemical produced by your body when your eyes see that it’s dark and determine its time for sleep. Looking at a bright screen throws off this natural process, and the lack of melatonin makes it harder to get to sleep.
Did you know you can reduce this effect with Nightlight?
Nightlight is a feature that lowers the brightness of the screen and changes the colour spectrum in order to limit the interruption to melatonin production. To turn it on, find it under Settings, and set a schedule for it to follow based on your preferences for late night computing.
