How to use flux if I work graveyard shift?

  • I'm on an unnatural sleep cycle, but that is what I must do for my financial survival. Do I just let flux work the same way? What's the science about restricting blue light if I'm working on a different sleep cycle? Is there a way to prevent flux from turning on daytime spectra in the early morning when I'm getting ready to go to bed?

  • Yes, the scheduling is more complicated - there are several "ok" schedules but most people do not achieve them. Avoiding daylight is a bigger concern than displays from a circadian perspective.

    General advice: set your wake time in f.lux, but set it a few hours earlier than you actually wake up.
