Overcome Fatigue And Drowsiness Easily During The Day On Shifting System Workers?
I want to ask, I’m a 23-year-old man, I work in a shop, and his schedule is shifting so I don’t get much sleep at night. But when I am off at home I often get sleepy during the day so I get tired quickly how to handle it, thanks
Hello Muhammand Nur Iman,
Night shift work schedules or changes in work shifts can indeed cause sleep disturbances. The body produces the hormone melatonin at night which helps regulate the body's biological rhythm. People who work shifts also usually have less sleep. An adult needs 7-9 hours of sleep a day.
Tips that might help are:
Avoid the accumulation of the night shift, you should still take time off between the night shift schedule Avoid changing the shift schedule too quickly If it is time to rest / sleep, create a dark bedroom, the appropriate temperature, do not put the cell phone near the bed, tell family members to not wake up if it's not necessary Limit consumption of coffee or other caffeinated drinks If you want to be more awake, make the environment brighter, turn on vibrant music, you can play games or do hobbies that you enjoy to make you feel less sleepy during the day during holidays Actually it's natural that you feel sleepy during the day, especially after working at night because in these circumstances your body needs rest. Dangerous sleep disturbance in night shift workers is when they are unable to rest or do not feel sleepy during the day after making a night shift. Especially if accompanied by symptoms of headaches, difficulty concentrating, and the body feels weak. In such cases further consultation with a doctor is needed.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
