Feeling sluggish after the night shift?
Working on a remote site and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is challenging. Whether you’re working on a drilling unit, terminal or production platform, the need to do your share of night shifts inevitably arises. However, burning the midnight oil too often can play havoc with your internal body clock, affecting every aspect of your health, from digestion to immune function to stress levels.
In this fascinating webinar aimed at shift workers, specialist Tom Gurney will take us through the latest nutritional science relating to circadian rhythms and optimal dietary patterns when working the night shift, including:
- How your body and mind are affected by disruptions to your circadian rhythm
- When, how, and what to eat pre and post-night shift for optimal nutrition
- Which supplements to add to your offshore diet when you have limited supplies
From how well you sleep to how stressed you feel at the end of the day, ignoring your circadian rhythm can hold you back from being your best self. So, while you’re recovering from the 6-week RigRun event, take some time to reset your rhythm ahead of RigRun Qualifiers in September!
