Surviving night shift with quality sleep
For most people working the night shift, #thestruggleisreal holds true. Even before the influx of call centers, working while the rest of the world is sleeping is the daily reality of the medical community, security personnel, law enforcement professionals and media entities, among countless others whose jobs are at rotating or irregular shifts.
Having erratic schedules, people who work non-traditional hours could suffer from “shift work sleep disorders,” which could lead to absenteeism and potential health problems. The sleep-deprived can become more irritable or less focused, depressed or grumpy.
Uratex, the Sleep Specialist, recommends that shift workers should avoid bright light as they head home from work. Wearing dark glasses can also reduce exposure to the sun or too much light. Once home, the shift workers should darken the bedroom with heavy curtains to block out light so they could have fresh start for the day after a restful sleep.
As the “Provider of Good Sleep,” Uratex promotes better sleep in the Philippines under the “Ganda ng Gising” campaign, which embodies the benefits of good sleep to inspire Filipinos and lets us imbibe the value of good sleep so we could wake up happier and ready for the day—or night—and the world.
“Wake up to better, brighter tomorrows with Uratex because you can do more and be more with good sleep,” urges Cherry Wong-Tan, Uratex marketing director. “Uratex brings new innovation and research-based technology through better sleep solutions and products to its consumers.”
