Getting bright light throughout the day could be just as important for improving sleep as avoiding blue light exposure at night.
After exposure to daytime bright light (6.5 hours), evening use of a tablet for two hours did not affect sleep in healthy young students.

It has previously been shown that early bright light exposure can ameliorate some of the suppressive effects of evening blue light has on melatonin levels.
