Sleep advice for shift workers

Thu, May 24, 2018

If you work shifts, aim to have at least four hours sleep at the same time every night/morning (eg, 3am to 7am). This will help to keep your sleep clock regular. Use the weekend or days off to get in some extra “recovery” sleep. Make sure the sleeping environment is as conducive to rest as possible.

A comfortable bed in a dark, well-ventilated, room is essential. And when we say dark, we mean dark – invest in some blackout curtains. If you work shifts, you really need to re-set your biological clock. Avoid stimulants (eg, coffee), large meals, or vigorous exercise for at least three to four hours before going to bed. Also, avoid over-the-counter sleeping aids which may make you over sleepy when you need to be alert (driving home, for example).
