I’ve seen too many nurses retire with the same health issues as the patients they cared for. At least one half to one third of nurses, along with other occupations, work the night shift. My goal is to retire with continued good health, energy, and without health issues so that I can continue being an effective wife, mother, and grandmother. I believe in Complementary Health Care. There is a time and place for medical care and self-care. I’ve seen too many instances where illnesses and hospitalization could have been avoided with due diligence in self-care, a focus on health and wellness, and stress management. Some co-workers have told me they want to look like me when they are my age; healthy and looking years younger.  This first book, Night Shift—Maintaining Health and Wellness, is the first of several books I hope to write. It’s not perfect but, it does convey the strategies and tools workers need to consider when scheduled on the night shift.
