Show Notes

In this episode I go solo and discuss a phenomenon called ‘Sleep Debt’, which given the irregular hours and rotational rosters that many shift workers are required to work, is a situation experienced by many who work 24/7.

In this episode you’re going to learn:
– What exactly is ‘sleep debt’, and why are shift workers prone to it.
– Some of the short-term and long-term effects of sleep debt
– The million dollar question – can we pay it back?
– Some tips and strategies to help reduce and minimise this sleep debt
