Survival Tips For Night Shift Nurses

Do you always dread working night shifts? I'm sure some nurses would love to have normal working hours if given the chance... but night shifts are a huge part of the medical community!

If you’re a night shift nurse, don’t fret!  With the right planning and strategy, you can deal with all the stresses that come with working night shifts like a total pro. Here are some tips you might want to follow:

1.) Take a break:

When we say take a break we don't mean you should gorge on food and drink tons of coffee; try taking a quick nap or a few minutes of body stretching. You can listen to a calming music or just stare at a relaxing view. A 20 – 30 minute break is enough to power you up for the remaining half of your shift.

2.) Bring a positive attitude to work:  Graveyard shifts can sometimes be cruel especially if you are not able to sleep well during the day. Instead of complaining that you can’t join your friends for a night out, you can always choose to find the brighter side of your work. Smile and always think that you’re saving the world! Well, not literally, but you are actually helping people everyday!

3.) Exercise:  Don’t take your body for granted. Workout, do yoga or meditate for a few minutes before going to work. These stress-busting activities will definitely fire you up and awaken your senses. You can workout at any given time of the day, and being assigned on a night shift is not a valid reason why you can’t sweat out.

4.) Eat healthy:  Ok so this might sound a little like your mom nagging you, but this is very true! Eating the right meal and snacks can help your body adjust to the evening routine and cope well with stress. Shift your eating habit, which means you eat breakfast in the afternoon, lunch at midnight and dinner in the morning. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water and limit your caffeine intake!

5.) Get plenty of sleep:  You should have at least 7-8 hours of sleep everyday.  When you get home from work, don't go to sleep immediately.  Relax for a little while, watch TV or do housework.  Your body will tell you when you're ready to sleep, and you'll probably sleep more relaxed.  If you find it difficult to do, take a warm bath, cover your windows with thick curtains and make sure your room is sound proof. A well-rested body is vital for a productive night at work!

6.) Find ways to be productive during lean hours:  A night shift can be full of dull moments and this can make for a very long night. To get rid of the monotony, find some productive things to do such as closely interacting with your patients or covering as many tasks as possible for the nurses in the morning shift.

7.) Prepare for your shift:  Give yourself time to pack a meal and snacks. It is tempting when fatigue sets in to go to the vending machines for a sugary snack to boost your energy. Not only will you crash later, you sabotage your performance and metabolism for long term consequences.

8.) Monitor your health: Always make sure to stay on top of your health!  Making sure to schedule regular appointments with your doctor can help you avoid some illnesses that are associated with working at night.  If you feel like you are getting sick, make sure to stay on top of it!

9.) Wear dark sunglasses when leaving from work: It sounds silly, but Sunlight has the ability to reset your body to its normal daytime cycle. Wear sunglasses to minimize eye exposure to the sun and help you sleep well throughout the day.

10.) Always find time for your family: Family is important!  Devote your day off with your spouse, kids or siblings. Make it a point to spend as much time as you can with your loved ones. Show up on a weekend night out with friends or surprise your family with a hearty dinner. These simple acts of kindness will keep you motivated to go back to work each night.

Whats Your Winter Style?

The cold weather is definitely upon us!  Here in Michigan, we have SNOW already! Crazy, right?  Maybe you're lucky enough to live in a warm weather state and the idea of winter scrubs hasn't even crossed your mind!  But, if you're not that fortunate you might be finding yourself scrambling to grab something that is comfortable, professional and of course - WARM! 

The biggest key to staying warm is to layer up! There are two simple styles when layering that are very versatile and allow you to still use those summer scrubs!

Long Sleeve T-Shirt: Just pair your favorite long sleeve t-shirts underneath your favorite short sleeve scrub top!  This will instantly expand your winter wardrobe and give you the benefit of being able to remove layers if you do happen to get hot!

The Scrub Jacket or Crew Neck Warm Up: Scrub jackets offer the same ease of movement as regular scrubs but give the warmth of full length sleeves.  Most crew neck warm ups are available in both solid and prints too!

So what is your winter style - Jacket/Crew Neck or Long Sleeve Tee?  Let's see your Winter Style! Tag us on instagram (@lydiasuniforms), Twitter or Facebook!

Add A Splash Of Personality To Your Work Day!

We all want to be able to look great in and out of work! Medical uniforms have certainly evolved over the years - Today there are so many options to spruce up your uniforms!  

Are you curious how to make your uniform stand out at work?  Even if your company has a dress code, there are still ways you can add a splash of personality into your everyday work uniforms! Here are a few ideas...

Wear Bright Colors or Designs
A lot of times, when you think of scrubs you may think of the basic white or blue scrubs, but there are so many other options! For women, there are crew neck warm up jackets, fashionable scrub pants, trendy white lab coats and fun designs and animal prints. For men, there are cargo drawstring pants, sporty v-neck scrub tops and warm-up jackets.

Accessorize!
You no longer need to walk around wearing a plain stethoscope or drab surgical caps - Check out all of Lydia's fun accessories you can add to your dress code!

Shoes for Comfort AND Style
Over the past few years, nursing shoes have come a long way in the fashion AND comfort department!  As someone in the medical profession, you are constantly on your feet and it is important to invest in a pair of shoes that will be comfortable but not sacrifice fashion!  If you’re a woman and looking to bring out your inner fashionista, wear flexible clogs with animal prints or trendy tennis shoes. If you’re a male, you might choose a shoe with more of a sporty look.

People in the medical profession today are faced with many challenges on a daily basis, why not add a little fun to your day by tossing on a sparkly stethoscope or wearing trendy shoes? Sometimes it’s the small things that can make a big difference in your day.

What are ways you bring flair to your uniform? Share your ideas in our comment section below or on our Facebook page!
