Meal Planning for Shift Work
Gain an understanding of the natural body clock rhythm and how to plan meals and lifestyle habits for optimal health.
Who it’s for:
Anyone who works shifts themselves or wants to support a loved one who does.
What it covers:
Our body’s circadian rhythm plays a huge part in our health. It programmes the body to be active during the day and conversely, to fast and focus on repairing and restoring itself at night.
Therefore anyone who works shifts will benefit from gaining a better understanding of how to minimise the impact of any disruption to our body clock. Equipped with this knowledge, it is possible to significantly reduce both physical and mental health risks as well as improve general wellbeing and energy levels. In this practical session, we look at:
- How our body clock works
- Food and hydration including healthy swaps
- Some key guidelines about timings with example meal plans for different shift patterns
- Lifestyle habits including exercise, relaxation and sleep
- Practical planning including recommended equipment and recipes
Attendees will have the opportunity to complete their personal meal plan and set goals during the session.
