A surprising new study suggests that working the night shift may actually be better for your health than getting a full night’s sleep.
According to the study, night shift workers tend to have lower rates of obesity and heart disease than those who get a healthy amount of sleep.
Experts are speculating that the constant activity and stimulation of night shift work may be keeping workers’ bodies more active and healthy.
“Who needs sleep when you have a job that keeps you on your toes all night?” said night shift worker Liam Anderson. “I feel like a million bucks!”
While the findings are intriguing, some experts are cautioning against drawing too many conclusions from the study. It’s still important to prioritize getting enough rest, they say.
So if you’re struggling to get a good night’s sleep, maybe it’s time to consider a career change to the night shift!
