hi guys I just want to ask for ideas from nightshifters on how they sleep in daytime. thanks!
I have been on NOC 7p to 730 a for 6 years… Never thought I would be able to stay up all night. I use Benadryl 50 mg. Bananas work well with it, also magnesium. Ear plugs, cool room and dark shades. The night before my first shift I stay up to 0100 and sleep till at least 1 or 2 in the after noon with the help of Benadryl. If not back to work I will only sleep 3-4 hours so I can enjoy day light and back on normal schedule
OMG Amy, that’s a really hard one. I’ve worked the noc shift for a long time and still have trouble..Some tell me a warm shower, exercise before helps. To tell you the truth, Luminite helps me..it’s an OTC supplement that you can get at GNC…
I have been back on night shift since January and I make my room as dark as possible by using a dark blanket over the windows as well as using a sleeping mask. You should try to limit the amount of caffeine you drink after midnight.
