When I was looking for a job as a new nurse I knew there would be some sacrifices to make. One of them being working nights. I've never worked a full night shift before. The latest I've ever worked was till about 3am. I don't think I'll have any trouble staying awake, my worry is getting enough sleep the next day to go back to work that night. So to prepare myself I have purchased a few items I think will help me.
This is a herbal supplement that claims to reduce stress hormones to support the body's relaxation response.
We have French doors and two windows in our bedroom. That makes for a lot of light during the daytime hours. I've though about getting black out shades/curtains, but then what do you do with them during the day? So I thought I'd try wearing a sleeping mask. I ordered this one online and it came in the mail today. I am anxiously awaiting to try it.
