It has been known for some time now that the glow from the various devices we use can affect our sleep, or circadian rhythm. In a world increasingly populated with various devices that we look at day-in-day-out this can result in a lack of sleep. I don't know about you, but I enjoy my sleep. In Windows 10 you can go in and turn on a setting that helps minimize the effects of monitor glow by changing the color temperature of your monitor automatically.
Typically, your monitor emits a blue tone, this mimics the lighting we are used to seeing during the daytime. By shifting your monitor to a warmer color rather than the "bluer" color that it is typically set to, you help yourself fall asleep when you finally drag yourself away from the computer at the end of a late-night work session.
To configure your computer for Night Light, follow these steps:
Figure 1. Turn on Night light (off until 6:00PM).
Night light will now turn on automatically at the time that is displayed above the toggle.
