Light hacking help (what bulbs should I get/avoid?)

edited December 2017 in General Discussion

I've read the page about light hacking but many questions still remain.

I want to setup a full-spectrum lamp at work to keep me awake. I'd prefer to use a document lamp and not have a huge lightbox shining directly in my face. What kind of "full spectrum" bulb should I buy? Halogen is too hot I start sweating afaik.

Are all LED lights bad? I see an un-recommendation for CFLs and White LEDs. What about the more yellow "Daytime" LEDs?

What red/orange light bulbs should I buy for my screw-in type bulbs for my bedroom?

If I have long florescent lights in my home office, what should I replace them with? They are ceiling mounted.
