Working a night shift for the first time. Help!!! Watch
Its from 9pm to 6am.
How do i prepare myself for this shift?? On a normal day im in bed by 11pm and up by 10am. (I know i sleep loads)
So basically i dont want to fall asleep 2 hours into my shift. I'll be working by myself as the store will be closed so there will be no one there to talk to which is going to make things difficult. I have a huge list of jobs to do so everythings ready for the morning when the store opens.
Those of you who have done night shifts, could you please plan my day out for me tonight and tomorrow so im prepared for tomorrow nights night-shift.
What times shall i go sleep?
What times shall i wake up?
How do i stay alert and awake all shift?
Please plan today and tomorrows day for me.
I dont know how im going to manage
Drink lots of water (you’ll feel dehydrated during the night shift)
If you get a break try to sleep for an hour. For some people this helps them feel better, others not so much and prefer to go outside.
When you come back from the shift, take a bath and go to sleep for maximum 4-5 hours otherwise you won’t sleep during the night which will affect your sleep.
