Top Tips to Ease the Stress
There are some ways to make shift work more bearable.
1. When you are working, make sure the light is bright, and when you are meant to be sleeping, make sure the room is dark.
2. Don't wait until the night you start your shift to change sleeping patterns. Try to go to bed a little later each night in order to anticipate the change it will make to your wake-sleep patterns.
3. Eat proper meals and don't resort to convenience food and alcohol to help you wind down. You will cope better if you eat nourishing food.
