The human body is designed to sleep at night, and discussing the effects a chronic lack of sleep does to the human body covers a different topic altogether.
Working the night shift. Whether its you, or people you know, working in healthcare, maintaining peace & order, working the BPO industry, or still even doing WFH; sleep becomes an important activity.
Stating the obvious, the human body is designed to sleep at night, and discussing the effects a chronic lack of sleep does to the human body covers a different topic altogether. Therefore, here are some tips for coping with working into the late and early hours of the day to reduce stress levels.
Below are five tips on how to cope with night shifts to reduce stress and anxiety:
- To reduce stress you need to manage your sleep patterns. Adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep.
- Sleep right away coming home from a night shift. Not doing so would make it harder to go to sleep and will only increase stress levels.
- Eat and drink before sleeping. Pangs of hunger and thirst can and would break your midday sleep.
- Control sources of light and noise exposure. Our quality of sleep during the day is already less compared to sleeping naturally at night, so it best to manage any “daytime” stimuli
- Notify friends and family of your working hours so they do not disturb you
