Shift Work Nutrition – The KEY To Beating Fatigue!

Now first class nutrition is essential for absolutely everybody, whether you work shift work or not. But because you’re placing extra strain on your body by working crazy and irregular hours – then it’s even more critical that you adopt healthy eating habits – daily.

And the good news is that first class shift work nutrition is the KEY to beating fatigue. Now the word ‘fatigue’ is certainly a familiar word in a shift workers vocabulary!

So as you take better care of yourself by feeding your body first class nutrition, you will become more charismatic, you will have more energy and you will even become better at your job.

You will simply feel so much better when you put the best fuel possible into your body.

The food that you eat everyday will help your immune system become stronger and your mind fresh and focused. (I don’t know about you but I’ve had so many ‘forgetful’ moments over the years I used to just place it down to sleep deprivation, but in hindsight I think it was just poor eating habits and bad nutrition on my part!)

You see for most shift workers, they blame sleep deprivation as the major reason for making them feel so tired and lethargic. And of course there is a lot of truth to this statement.

But what most people don’t realise is the power of what you take in your hand and put in your mouth can make a huge difference in how you feel – particularly with your energy levels.

I also believe that for most shift workers, they are blissfully unaware of just how food affects their body and their overall health.

So if you’re sick of waking up feeling tired and lethargic – take a good hard look at what is passing through your mouth. If your diet consists mainly of boxed or processed foods then it might be time to make the switch to include more fresh, raw and organic foods.

I guarantee that you will start to feel much more vibrant and energized as you start to feed your body first class shift work nutrition.

After all, do you put contaminated fuel in your car? I think not. So why feed your body with contaminated food – which essentially is what processed food is.

P.S – So your tip for today – write down everything (and I mean everything) that passes through your mouth for the next 3 days. I think you will be shocked at just how much junk you’re actually putting into your body …

    Well done, nice short blog to get shift workers to rethink their diet without preaching about healthy eating, after all before you want to change your diet you should get aware about what you really eat.
    The only thing I would like to comment is that it might be useful for shift workers to do that for the different types of shift they work for 3 days as I would think the food you eat during a night shift would be very different to the food you eat during a day shift,this might help to focus your attention to the worst of the worst.
