I work nights and sleep in the day and have foundsome things that work OK for me most of the time.
I DO find that having the TV on in the bedroom is good. It does seem to desensitise you to other daytime noises like doors opening and closing, voices and movement around the house.
The other thing I found is that I used to wake up after 3-5 hours if I went to bed within 2 hours of getting home. I started forcing myself to stay up until about midday to 1pm and then go to bed.( I finish work at 7am) This enabled me to sleep for 7-9 hours pretty much solid and then get up and have up to 2 hours to wake up properly, have something to eat and go to work at 11pm.
I reversed all my meals so that I have "breakfast" when I get up from my sleep, dinner or lunch at work and the other meal about 2 hours after I get home.
This means that I am doing what I would do if I was on day shift only in reverse.
Was hard at the beginning but I have persevered with it and I now get a good solid sleep every day.
TV is good for dozing off though. I make a point of shutting my eyes in the ads and am usually asleep by the third set.
Hope some of this may help
