Just curious, if you work night shift or you have in the past (either 11p-7a or 7p-7a), when do you usually sleep? Do you get a full 8 hours?
I'm just curious because I work nights and generally I will sleep almost as soon as I get home (around 730 or 8 am) and I wake up around 2 or 3 pm. Sometimes 4 pm if I'm really lucky. I wake up feeling rested, but I find that lately I've been exhausted all throughout my shift. I find that if I take a nap, even an hour, right before my shift it helps a TON.
I have tried to stay up later and go to sleep around noon so I can wake up closer to my shift, but that never works out. I'm so exhausted when I get home! I guess I'm not a natural night owl. I do like working nights though, because I find it is more laid back than the other shifts, most of the time.
What about you? Do you stay up and go to sleep later, or do you sleep as soon you get home? Do you sleep in one block or split up your sleep time?
