Adapting to shiftwork takes more than "getting used to it"

I came across an article on, Living on the Graveyard Shift, that's an interesting discussion of a few shiftworkers. While it hardly paints a picture of what a typical night shift worker faces, it is interesting nonetheless. Unfortunately, it concludes stating that it's just a matter of getting used to it. As I posted as a comment to the article, it takes a more concerted effort that just "getting used to it." That's what many of the posts on this site are all about.
