SHIFT WORK

work that starts and ends at different times of the day. There is 3 shifts, day, afternoon and night. People working all 3 shifts end up with sleeping and mood problems and find it hard to get into a rhythm for sleeping and eating.

SHIFT WORK: "Joe worked shift work for many years and is why he has trouble sleeping now."
