Hello and Welcome to The Other Shift!
Welcome to The Other Shift or the shift that you’ll be excited to get up for.
Who are we?
We are Emma and Daniel, an Aussie couple, who split time between “Down Under” and the United States. Albeit Aussies at heart, we love experiencing the real American culture, meeting people from across the globe, and having a life that regularly throws us out of our comfort zone!
And we know a thing or two about shift work too!
To learn about us, click The Other Shift Team page here.
Why The Other Shift?
We wanted to create a special place for shift workers like ourselves who might be battling sleep fatigue, struggling to exercise and stay healthy, or finding the right balance between ‘you time’ and managing your relationships.
Our sole mission here at The Other Shift is to help you be a happy, healthy shift worker who’s firmly in control of your irregular schedule.
We’re excited to show you that it’s possible to do shift work and thrive in most things outside the office.
Sure, there are times when favorite activities get bumped for some much-needed zzz’s — but we’ll teach you to find the silver lining in this unique life we’ve chosen.
Our information is full of raw experience, formatted just for you: No wordy text, videos that get right to the point, and visuals to catch those sleepy eyes before dreaming of that next vacation.

From our newest shift workers to the veterans among us, we have an extensive blog which is guaranteed to cater for all. But feel free to contact us if we are missing anything!
