For all those who do shift work, how do you find it and any tips for adjusting between day and nights.
Have done day/night/twighlight for the last 6 years. Used to be 5 days per week mon to fri. 39.5 hrs. 2 week rotation.
3 months ago we accepted a new contract and switched to 24/7 cover. I now work 12 hour shifts, 2 or 3 days a week over 7 days.
Have never felt as rundown and tired in my life, finding working only 2 or 3 days per shift is extremely hard to adjust to. Seem to be spending the my extra time off just resting, which is not good.
Any tips? Whats your thoughts on the shifts you work?
