We all can agree on the fact that every industry and sector has its own working hours. At some places like airports and shops, it is very common to find people with rotative shifts. And, on the other hand, a normal office schedule would be between 9 am – 18 pm.

Normally, people working in the morning are complaining about some things that they miss and the other way around as well. Each of us has the capacity to easily adapt to a different way of living. However, we all have our preferences and internally we work differently.

 

Morning Shift Article

It is one of the most common. A lot of people start working between 6-9am to work in different activities of our society. Call Centres, Offices, Stores, Transports, Services, Restaurants… It is really a big amount of people who start the day working hard even when the sun is still sleeping.
If you normally work on this schedule you probably know already that at the beginning it takes a while until you get your daily routine. Possibly you are not having great breakfasts deserving an Instagram picture but for sure you have found your own way of having a quick coffee in the morning.

Pros

 

-You will have no excuses to stay in bed losing your time. Having a responsibility in the morning will make you squeeze your days from the very beginning

-You will be the first one being informed. Social Media, Newspapers, TV, Radio… Everything starts working early in the morning to give you the latest news.

Cons

 

-Some people can feel how their energy drops when the day is passing. If you like to stay active in the evening you can have less energy earlier than someone who had the possibility to sleep longer.

-You will not always manage to go to bed early. If you have a bad night, or a very good one, you will feel the consequences next morning.

The rest of the world is joining later in the day. Most of the people are relieving their colleagues and continuing with their tasks. In Spain, besides the reputation of the siesta, most of the stores and services are working between 10 am – 21-22pm.

Pros

 

-A lot of people likes to enjoy the morning to do some activities. You can normally have more energy to go to the gym or do some sports.

-It is a perfect moment to solve issues with some entities opening mostly in the morning, as the bank offices or some other places.

-You can enjoy a well-prepared breakfast with no rush.

-If the night before you had some trouble sleeping, you can always have the option of sleeping a bit longer to recover yourself.

Cons

 

-If you do not have some self-authority you can lose a lot of time in bed.

-Normally, if you finish very late you will have to get used to having dinner later than normal.

-Sometimes you will be the last one and it means you might need to stay longer to solve some unexpected issues.

  

 

It is easy to adapt to each way of working. It normally depends on the person and its preferences. While someone can really love working in the morning shifts, it can be a nightmare for somebody else.
