If any of you work nightshift and have to work a stretch of them do you stay up after the last nightshift you've worked so you can get back onto your normal sleeping pattern, or just sleep the day away? For me, I enjoy to stay up till night and then go to bed after working my last nightshift when I'm on a stretch of them.

My brother is a nurse and he works on a night shift. This has been on for four years. He said it was a struggle for him in his first two years. But now his body has adjusted and he can sleep more during the day than during the night. I had a night classes before and during the day I would stay in bed till late. I didn't really like it. It's very difficult to adjust.

Hi Jemina, I feel that for me it's always been easy to adjust to nightshift because I've always been the type to stay up late anyway. But.. for your brother, I can see why it was hard to adjust. thank you for your comment

So, you're a nocturnal then. It's good you don't find it difficult. Well, I guess it comes with what we got used to. I have never really made it a habit even watching TVs late at night. I'd rather get up early than stay up late and wake up late the next day.
