Go Ahead and Sleep In This Weekend

Go Ahead and Sleep In This Weekend

The latest study, published last week in the Journal of Sleep Research, address the association of both weekday and weekend sleep duration with overall mortality.

This study relied on people to describe their own sleep habits, which can generate a "mish-mosh", in Lauderdale's view, of "accurate and less accurate information".

Researchers have found that adults under the age of 65 who get five or fewer hours of sleep for seven days a week have a higher risk of death than those who consistently get six or seven hours of shut-eye.

Also, the point of the study done in Sweden is to point out that it is possible to make up for a sleep deficit, not to lay out the most ideal way to do it.

"Apparently, sleeping in in on the weekends can be a real help", said Åkerstedt, a professor and director of the Stress Research Institute at Stockholm University.

This study follows previous research, including another sleep study that found that weekend sleep can compensate for missed weekday sleep.

The team pointed out that they only assessed individuals aged 65 or under, not bearing the sleeping habits and mortality rates of those older in mind.

The scientific jury is still out on why too much sleep is associated with an uptick in mortality rates.

But when the short sleepers slept in on the weekends, their mortality rate did not differ from that of the consistent seven-hour-a-night-ers. That was compared to those who slept seven hours a night.

Regardless, the next time you feel bad about sleeping in more than normal, just think of it as an investment in your long-term health.

All that said, however, that doesn't mean you should start depriving yourself of sleep during the work week.

Dr Peirson, based at the University of Oxford, noted that sleep requirements varied from person to person according to genetics, but he added that "sleep debt" needed to be "paid off". "Well, you can, but you won't live as long".
