OFF NOCS! How long to feel "normal" again?

  1. I FINALLY got a new position and will be going to a regular day schedule again. I am SO EXCITED ! Night shift was extremely tough on my physically and mentally.
    How long did it take you to feel normal and sleep like a baby at night again?

    Woot woot! So glad that I will have my life back again! (I'm NOT a night person)

    It literally took me no time to adjust. I've worked nights for over 15 years, and just switched to days two months ago. I've had no problem adjusting, and on my days off I'm usually awake by 7:30 am. On my days I work (3-4 12s a week), I usually get up at 4:15am and go to the gym at least one of my work days. The other work days I get up at 5:30. I have not had any problem shifting to days.
