When I used to work the overnight shift I found that creating a good
sleep environment was crucial.  I used foil in the windows to block all
sunlight and wore earplugs to filter out noise.  Also, a comfortable bed
takes on even more importance when working overnight.  I know some
people swear by melatonin, but I would be very careful with it, since
the jury is still out on it's long term health effects.  I would only
take it when other methods fail.  I prefer to get my sleep in long
blocks rather than in shifts, but it's important to do what works for
