Biologically, I am a night owl.
It is the easiest shift for me to work. The morning or first shift knocks the life out of me.
I never had a problem adapting to the night shift. I naturally prefer to sleep during the day and I am active at night.
My friends call me a bat, or a vampire -- I retreat to the dark when the sun comes up.
There are those of us who are naturally disposed to being awake early, and those of us how are on the other side of the clock. If you try to work the shift that isn't preferred by your body, you need more sleep and usually have problems awakening.
It takes the body at least six weeks to adjust to a new shift, which is why I don't understand why professions, like law enforcement, put people on swing shifts, where they are working a different shift every few days. The body never adjusts, leading to sleep deprivation, anxiety, anger, and health problems.
Ok, I guess I have said too much. Guess I'm just garralous tonight.
Yeah, I have worked the night shift.
Acceptance on someone else's terms is worse than rejection.
