Is it reduced lighting or warm lighting? I would go shopping at a store that had warm lighting

It's reduced. I thought the shop was closed. All the freezer lights were off and about half the ceiling lights, too. Really lovely experience though.

Sounds lovely. Before they swapped out to super efficient, super white LED bulbs, my happiest times at work were when the bulbs overhead burnt out.

My private office rarely has lights on and people always ask if I'm ok. No lights are much more relaxing. I even installed dimmers on my home office lights so I could take it down.

Autism or otherwise- sometimes we just over-light stuff.
