Working at night: individuals at risk

Research is not yet able to clarify if there are long-term effects for people who can adapt to night shifts or if there are risks for everyone working shifts.

Until we know more about exactly who is at risk, those who work at night would be wise to eat healthily, exercise, and look out for early signs of these risks.

We usually release melatonin in the evening when we start feeling tired and ready for sleep, but when individuals work night shifts, the peak will move to daytime.

Some jobs require night shift work, such as hospitals or 24-hour shops. With planning, it is possible to work all night and still get eight hours of sleep in the day.

  • The impact of shift work might be that it is harder to eat healthily. A good meal is harder to find, and you're probably not feeling like a salad when you're trying to keep yourself awake.
  • There is less opportunity for exercise when you've been up all night.
