The night shift….Hello February

Different situations trigger the need for a night shift work. When you think of your responsibilities and the goals you want to achieve you are compelled to work. 
Your strength for financial capacity increases and you are able to go any length to make your self flexible, have enough and save at least. Day time workers are no exception, especially when working very long hours…”at least man must work and chop…… a little sleep a little slumber, the folding of hands till poverty comes”
…….Not a bad initiative but there are also the cons to working night shifts. 

Health consequences such as the Shift work sleep disorder is a major one. It’s associated with cluster headaches, stress, fatigue, loss of concentration and poor sexual performance. 
To pull your night shifts off and remain healthy… need to Sleep well and eat well.! not crap, junk, or pick food… eat very well.  

Eba and Okro the Alhaji cuisine way

In a situation you start work at 11pm and finish at 7am, eat your dinner in the morning like 8:30am …. it could be Eba you like and Okro or vegetable soup, eat and drink along side a glass of juice and water, watch T.V and then go to bed just in time. Other wise, eat a plate of rice, fish stew and plantain with hot chocolate and sleep not later than 9am (no matter the time ensure you have a minimum of 6 hours sleep).

Rice, fried plantain and Fish stew

Plan to be up by 3pm take a bath, a cup of tea and get on with your day’s activity, enjoy your day as you wish. When its 7pm have your lunch, it could be beans porridge with nice thick bread, or beans porridge and soak garri with fried fish. 

Fried Fish

After few hours, depending on how much time you spend, take another bath and prepare for work. At work, you can kick off breakfast with a cup of coffee and biscuits or take porridge oats or a slice of toast with butter or yogurt and fruits, or cereal. 

Tea and Biscuits.

When it’s well into the midnight, like 3am take a fizzy drink, have a sandwich, or a muffin or any kind of pasty/pies, it could be chips or fried plantain made and packed from home. However, eat something reasonably light and with sugar content. This should take you through to 7am when your shift would be over. Same applies to any night shift, so far it starts at night.

Do same routine, each day. 
 And on weekends or off days?? sleep tight and eat tight.* winks.
