So, I’ve got another video to share with you guys!
I did three nights in a row last week and so thought, seeing as I get so many requests to share what I do for night shifts and how I get through them, it would be a good one to share!
Three in a row is never easy, and this was no exception, but I think I’m getting a little more used to it now.
I try to sleep a little in the afternoon before my first night if I can, then doze a little on my break. In this case, by first night didn’t follow either of these – I just couldn’t sleep! But I certainly made up for it when I got home!
Nights are always tough on your body, but I just try to look after myself as much as possible. I sleep when I can and eat when I feel that I need to…for me, I have breakfast before my shift and then have dinner on my break; other people have dinner before they start and have breakfast on their break. I think it’s completely individual as to what works for you!
If you have any questions about night shifts, please leave them in the comments below and I will do a Q+A soon!Image by chuttersnap
