  1. My wife saw on Dr. Oz this week that using orange lights at night can help with falling asleep. Basically, as the sun rises it emits blue rays which stimulate you and keep you awake and alert. Computers, televisions, phones, lights, etc. produce a similar emission. Then, at sunset it emits orange rays which signal you to relax and wind down and get ready for sleep.The recommendation Dr. Oz made was to place an orange bulb in your room and turn it on about 2 hrs before you go to sleep and let it help wind you down. There is also a program you can install on your computer called f. lux (http://stereopsis.com/flux/) which dims your computer to produce orange light in accordance with the sun's schedule. I need to watch something nightly in order to help relax/distract me from feeling like crap, but it hurts when i'm trying to wind down and sleep at night. I downloaded the f. lux program (totally free) and saw a nice difference at night. I could view my computer screen without feeling so over stimulated and i've noticed a reduction in headaches at night. I have also ordered a standard orange tinted light bulb an a pair of orange tinted glasses which make a big difference. I'd highly recommend looking into this for anyone who has similar issues. There is no downside and I've had some positive results. I'm new to discovering this so if anyone else is more of an expert please chime in!
