Do any of you out there work different shifts on any given day? Do you find it near impossible to figure out how to come up with a weekly schedule that fits YOUR needs? Look no further! I’ve made some adjustments to my regular weekly calendar so that it is now customized for shift workers such as hospital staff, retail associates, emergency personnel, night-shift crews, etc.
You will notice under the “Early Shift Schedule” column that there is a transparent line that says, “afternoon schedule.” This is in case you work an early shift, but also get out early enough in the day to need an afternoon schedule. If you DON’T need it though (because you will be working through the afternoon) you can easily write over top of the transparency.
You will notice that each schedule (except for the evening shift) has both a morning and an evening routine. Remember your evening routine is the most important because it sets the tone for the following morning. The more you can get accomplished at night will help to alleviate some of the daily morning chaos that comes with getting everyone out the door on time.
*One tip to make it even easier to use this schedule is to print it once and then laminate it so you can use dry erase markers to easily update the content each week.
Enjoy! If the schedule helps to keep you organized … I’d love to hear about it. Also, if you have any suggestions to help improve it even more, I’d love to hear that as well. If I can, I will try to accommodate specific needs.
