This book is informative, thought-provoking, interactive, and encourages the reader to evaluate his or her bodily response to working night shift. Working at night alters the night shift workers sleep/wake cycle. Alterations in the sleep/wake cycle expose the shift worker to risks such as restlessness, irritability, insomnia, weight gain, fatigue, and over time- sleep deprivation. Chronic sleep deprivation can lead to forgetfulness and other cognitive changes, development of diabetes and/or problems with digestion, a diminished ability to fight off infections, and is a probable risk factor in the development of cancer. Although, this book is written from a night-shift biographical perspective the reader is encouraged to individualize the strategies and tools to maintain their own health and wellness. Forewarned is forearmed and knowledge is power to effect a change for a better life.

About the Author:

I’ve seen too many nurses retire with the same health issues as the patients they cared for. At least one half to one third of nurses, along with other occupations, work the night shift. My goal is to retire with continued good health, energy, and without health issues so that I can continue being an effective wife, mother, and grandmother. I believe in Complementary Health Care. There is a time and place for medical care and self-care. I’ve seen too many instances where illnesses and hospitalization could have been avoided with due diligence in self-care, a focus on health and wellness, and stress management. My 76 year old mother’s A1c was greater than 10 when she came to live with me. Prior to her fall and knee injury which resulted in her nursing home placement; I was able to assist in reducing her Alc to 6.9. Some co-workers have told me they want to look like me when they are my age –healthy and looking years younger than my approaching 60 years of age. This first book, Night Shift—Maintaining Health and Wellness, is the first of several books I hope to write. It’s not perfect but, it does convey the strategies and tools workers need to consider when scheduled on the night shift.
