Recommendations for Managing Fatigue
Fitness
People who work varied schedules often have to be creative when trying to fit in fitness . 82 . Look for 24-hour gym facilities
83 . Regular aerobic exercise stabilizes circadian rhythms and burns off excess energy ; aerobically fit individuals also achieve better quality of sleep
84 . Light to moderate exercise just prior to beginning a later shift will boost energy and improve concentration
85 . When working daylight hours , limit intensive exercise 2-3 hours before sleep ; light to moderate exercise an hour or two before sleep is a proven sleep stabilizer – try going for a walk
