Shift worker relaxer help

A PERTH-based personal development practitioner has devised a technique to help shift workers relax.

Impact Training International director Margaret Lawlor says her ‘Blink Chambers’ – or rest rooms – help shift workers relax after long shifts, preventing burnout and ensuring an alert drive home.

“It is achieved by resting in a room where the decor is subtle and calming,” Ms Lawlor said. “Workers play my CD to drop them into total relaxation for ten to fifteen minutes. An automatic buzzer gently lets the person know their time is up and the lights come on.

“It can have a significant effect in reducing the number of accidents while driving home from shift work – feeling rested but sharp and alert.

“The room is also ideal prior to meetings to get one’s head clear and mind focused.

“When used as a repetitive discipline, it has been proven to offer enormous benefits,” she said.
