Questions about nighttime light hygiene

    I really love to read in bed but often fall asleep while reading so I"m worried about the safety of using candles at night in the bedroom.. my Kindle has a blue light blocking feature on it . does anyone know if that is effective?

    Is candle light the best for night time lighting before bed or are red or amber light bulbs just as good?

    Thanks everyone!

    No light past sunset.

    Unfortunately I live with someone else who will not be ok with that... they will be ok with candles or red or amber light bulbs though so which is best?

    Simple solution. Stop living with them.

    See Audrey if you are not good enough for yourself.......who are you good for? If you keep settling you'll keep making adjustments and breaking natures laws and it drives your heteroplasmy rate higher as you make up excuses to suit your circumstances and those circumstances then breed procrastination to take control of your life by making CHOICES FOR YOU.

    You are the CEO of you. If people are not in alignment with you and your choices you have a duty to change that.

    I could consider that but wow, really everyone who does this lifestyle goes to bed at 6pm or earlier every night in the winter? Or if not, what do you till bedtime?

    Real fire has been used by man for thousands upon thousands of years.

    It is sunset in the UK at 5PM, I can not sit in the dark for hours. I use lowbluelight bulbs, and soon I will use red panel. Candlelight would be OK too if you can get toxic free candles.

    Is it critical to block up to 550nm even when using candles? When using candles I use my uvex rather than my RaOptics. The UVEX block up to 500nm. Get much better visual with the UVEX when using candles

    There is an upside for me. The darker it is in the room the more I look like a celebrity. In fact, in a pitch black room I might as well be Brad Pitt.

    We have grown to love the dark .......we do go to bed early - around 8:30 - and listen to music or just talk [lots of cuddles etc. which are super important to both of us]

    we generally wake up around 5:00am and head to the ocean for sunrise.......tough job but someone has to do it!

    @drezy you’re already a mirror image of Brad Pitt. You got no worries getting there. Hope you take that as a compliment!

    So my real answer to the question is that we sure listen to audiobook way more often now. The last hour or so before bed we just listen to them.
