Frequently Asked Questions

How does Shift work & Jet lag effect us?

Many processes in our bodies follow a daily (“circadian”) rhythm, including sleep/wake cycles.

If we alter the usual times when we are active and when we sleep, e.g. working night shift or travelling overseas to a different time zone, it is common to experience difficulty sleeping.

If you are struggling to function properly because of shift work or jet lag, you may wish to make an appointment to discuss a specific management plan to fit your circumstance
