Hi Everyone! I am a long term lurker on Allurses but this is my first time posting so please move this if it's not in the right spot. I have been a nurse for 3 years but this is my first time working nightshift (7p - 7a) as I worked 3 to 11 when I worked psych and LTC. Does anyone have tips on how to stay healthy working nights? My biggest challenge currently is sleep as last night actually this morning I was only able to sleep 4 hours. I was thinking about getting blackout shades but I live in an apartment so I need some that will work with my current shades. I am trying to stay as healthy physically and mentally as possible since I have a personal hx of depression and a family hx of cancer, CVD, DM, obesity. Also if anyone has tips on how to have a social life as well I know COVID makes it a challenge in addition to working off hours. I am noticig that even after one night of working that my mental health is worse than normal.
