I work 7-on, 7-off overnight shifts (9pm-7am Monday thru Sunday). It usually only takes me a day to "flip" back and forth, then again I've thankfully never had problems falling or staying asleep. I sleep about 7-7.5 hours whether it's at night or during the day. Good luck!

This is for me...

It is refreshing to finally feel refreshed. I have finally adjusted, I am now a night time sleeper, daytime worker.

I've done it, but I was much younger. Don't know that I could make that switch now.

hope you can get back to a 'normal for you' sleep pattern

I use to work 2pm-11pm almost 6 days a week and I felt like I had no life, however my weightloss succeeded during that time. A coworker of mine had lower cal surgery so I got her shift of 5am-2pm and I love it so much better. I still do a 2-11pm shift occasionally though. It didn't take me long to adjust because I'm a morning and night person. You should be okay in 2-3 weeks hopefully.

I work days now. How long does it take to adjust. I slept for 4 days off and on. Any feedback or experience with this ???
