So lately I have been swapping all my day shifts for nights (for various reasons, I am a newer nurse and I find nights less stressful, I don't feel as tired etc etc). I love working out it keeps me in shape and relieves a lot of stress I have. I have been going to the gym right after my night shifts, and although it works out okay, I can never sleep afterwards, I feel extremely tired on my days off and lately my mood has been horrible. I just can't stop crying and feel so down. My questions are
1) when is a good time to work out with night shifts? Would it be better to come home, sleep for 6 hours and then go to the gym, shower and then go back to work for another night
2) is it possible that working all these night shifts is making me feel really depressed and fatigued all the time?
