I've worked night shift most of my adult life. And you can 'trick' your body into believing that daytime is really night time -- when i would come home after work, a while after dawn, I would have my 'supper' and go to bed with black curtains over the bedroom windows and turn on some white noise so that I wouldnt be disturbed by neighbors mowing their lawns.
But, of course, weekends screw with that deception; your wife and kids are NOT going pretend that 10AM is the middle of the night!
Like all lies, the ones you tell your body DO catch up to you!
