Theoretically, The Secretion of Melatonin
At present, it is medically recognized that melatonin is the hormone that affects sleep the most: if there is more melatonin secretion, people will feel sleepy; if there is less melatonin, people will be more awake.
So what is the effect of light on melatonin secretion? The current mainstream view is: blue light (not blue color light, but light with a relatively high energy wavelength between 400nm-480nm) will inhibit the secretion of melatonin, and red orange light (wavelengths 600-700nm) stimulates melatonin production and helps people fall asleep. In addition, many sleep aid lamps will add white noise function to help people sleep, sleep aid lamps are basically designed according to this theory.

- Turn on for 15 minutes before going to bed. The weak red and orange light can calm you down, and you will get sleepy slowly;
- Use the sleep aid lamp as a night light, and keep it on all night, because it is too dark to make people feel insecure and lonely.
- There is no difference between using and not using it. The conclusion is that it varies from person to person, individual sleep habits vary greatly, and there are many factors that affect sleep, light is only one of them. It is insignificant to some people, but relatively important to others.
