The problem comes with irregular sleep patterns so working daytime one week nights the next week your body can adjust to sleeping at a different time, but ideally it will only shift one hour per day and remain in full working order. Without this gradual change your body is subject to jet lag. https://youtu.be/OWqBsITdDUc
