  • Rotating 7 day shifts here. Just finishing swing today. Yeah :-) 2 days off. It can be hard at times. I find that if I lay down early when I get home that I sleep better. Our rotations are days, graveyards and then swing. Even if I can't sleep, it can be helpful to just lay still as much as possible while trying to adjust. I know what it is like. I do like to drink decaf green tea and go on cafemom for a few minutes of down time when I get home from the later shifts. I am still adjusting, this has been my 1st year of rotating shifts.
