All Fluorescent Lighting / Sign Lights

I have a 4w Magnetic ballast fluorescent note checker light that I leave on 24/7. I use it as a night light. The fitting is designed for a BLB black light tube but I just put a Standard White tube in and it works nicely as a night light.

For me, it has to be the TV with the volume down low. Watching an old show helps me fall asleep and it's reassuring if I wake in the middle of the night.

Set your TV in warm white configuration, it'll help you to sleep easily, and/or turn the brightness all the way down.

Thanks I'll keep that in mind. Actually I'll take any advice I can get on being able to sleep better.

Some people have had success in wearing glasses with orange lenses for couple of hours before going to bed. I cannot attest to this as I have never tried, but I like to limit my exposure to lamps that are above 3500K for a while before retiring for the night.

You can use cheap yellow building glasses, are very good filtering the blue light. Avoid any L*D, and CFL before going to bed, use incandescent or halogen in your room.

I have a daylight LED bulb in my bedroom lamp. I like the cool color but I didn't know that it could cause a problem. I've read about how blue light can affect sleep but wasn't sure if it was true.

Try replacing it with a low wattage incandescent for a couple of weeks to see if things improve.

If you wanna even sleep better, read magazines of your interest instead of TV shows while listening to calm music, and leave the computer, TV or whatever an hour before going to sleep, and buy a lamp with a dimmer and a 40w incandescent bulb, so you can regulate the light while you read. And don't listen to heavy or dead metal before going to bed.  LOL

Thanks I appreciate all the help I can get. I'll certainly try all of your advice. Nope no heavy metal at bedtime maybe classical. Again thanks for all the advice. Gotta get rid of that daylight LED in my room and everywhere else.
