Me and my body clock

Web Worker Daily and my recent UK trip inspired me to write this post.
I’ve never been one for that sleep thing really. even as a child I had sleeping issues.

Right now I’m getting tired early in the evening and waking up around 4 or 5 in the morning.
The good thing is that, with my line of work, I can do it…. whenever… (except for when I’m dispatching of course) then, when I am set to get a good night’s sleep you can almost guarantee that there will be a 2am fire call or something equally as inconvenient.

While traveling I’ve always found that it’s best to try and keep to my daily sleep/waking routine as much as possible. Well, as must of a routine as I normally have.

How is your body clock? how do you ‘tamper’ with it?

    We recently traveled to Australia/NZ (14-16 hours ahead) – I almost think that time shift was easier to handle than the one to Europe and back, maybe because it’s nearly opposite and the plane ride is sooo long. We boarded in LA around midnight and arrived after a 14-hour “night” in Brisbane in the bright and sunny AM – so it wasn’t too hard to shift. Coming back was a little harder – left Auckland around dinner time after a full day of activities, and arrived in Pgh at midnight the same night after traveling about 20 hours. I think daylight is the key to shifting your body clock quickly.
