Some of us don’t have the luxury of enjoying only one job. For people who have to care for sick or aging loved ones, juggling home life and work can be difficult at times. Because of this, primary caregivers tend to care for their loved ones in the morning and work in the evening (or the other way around). This helps them organize their schedule better without having to sacrifice one important thing over the other.
For primary caregivers, eating meals throughout the day may benefit your health if you work the night shift. In a recent study, it was shown that individuals who worked night shifts for 14 days and had some meals at night experienced an increase in blood sugar levels, possibly putting them at an increased risk for diseases including diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
If you are a primary caregiver who is experiencing this, it is best to time your meals during the day to prevent heart risk. This is especially true if you are older since older adults are more prone to these types of risks.
