If you use your phone at night without adjusting the color of your screen, you're doing it all wrong.
Most of us spend at least some time watching TV, on the computer, or looking at our phones right before bed, but the blue tones in those screens can interfere with a good night's sleep.
That's because blue light's shorter wavelengths interfere with the hormone called melatonin, which is key player in inducing sleep.
So whether you have an android or an iPhone here are ways to reduce those blue tones.
If you have an android phone download Twilight.
The app automatically adjusts the color of your screen based on the time of day.
As the sun sets, reddish colors will be used to filter out your screen's blue tones.
If you have an iPhone, iOs 9.3 brings a new feature called Night Shift.
With it, you can adjust the warms of the screen and schedule the filter to be turned off in the morning.
With these tips, not only will you get a better night's sleep, but your screen will be much easier on the eyes.
And now, you're doing it right.
