So tomorrow evening I have a Security Guard position I'll be taking from 7pm to 7am Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings (and 1am to 7am on Friday mornings).

It's currently 8:50pm here and I don't know what my sleep should be to prepare for this now. Work is 22 hours away, but I'm not sure how and when I should sleep now to prepare. What should I do?

1am to 7am Friday Mornings NEXT week, I mean. Not tonight.

Work backwards. Figure out when you need to start your shift. Work out how much time you need to commute there, work out how much time you need to get ready prior to leaving your home. Then subtract 8 hours from that time. That's when you need to start your sleep.

Just to add to this, pad out an extra 10-30 minutes to take into account the little things. Preparing shit once you get to the workplace, potential traffic issues, etc.

Okay, so looking at traffic and making pack lunch and breakfast, I'd wager the four hours are 8pm to 4am. But what about tonight? How do I get to that? Just stay up all night now? Take a nap and THEN sleep at 8?

Try to stay up a bit later each night. At least until 3-4am.

Make sure you get a lot of sleep the day before your shift.

No, you don't understand. There is only TOnight. As in, when do I sleep TONIGHT? Like, a quick nap to knock the edge off and get to the timeframe or something?

Here's my schedule

Work:
Friday May 20th, 7pm - Saturday, May 21st, 7am
Saturday, 7pm - Sunday, 7am
Sunday 7am - Monday, 7am

Then it's
Friday, 1am - Friday 7am
Friday 7pm - Saturday 7am
Saturday, 7pm - Sunday, 7am
Sunday 7am - Monday, 7am
from then out out.


It's currently 9:30pm Thursday
So right now I have ONE NIGHT to start with 8am-4pm sleep. How do I get my body ready for that? Keep in mind I slept 6 hours last night, so idk what I should do.
>>
It's hard to tell since I don't know what your time-zone is so I would say just stay up until you have to have your sleep to get yourself extra tired and then add an extra hour or two to your sleep to get some extra rest, i.e. 6am-4pm or something.
>>

So you're night shift now? It's not
That bad.

Stay awake until 6am. Go to bed at 6am, and sleep as much as you can until to go to work tomorrow night.
