Sleeping In On The Weekends Can Help You Live Longer, Study Finds

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.

The authors from Stockholm's Karolinska Institute tracked the sleep of more than 43,000 people for 13 years from 1997.

Average sleep duration at weekends and the percentage of those saying they did not feel rested at waking, did fall with age.

What remains to be seen is if each team will get one of their key pieces back for the biggest game of their seasons thus far. They're crossing fingers whenever Kevon Looney , Jordan Bell and/or Nick Young are pressed to play more than 15 minutes.

It's not so much about being able to store up sleep, but he thinks short sleepers who are changing their habits on the weekends are making up for some of what they lost during the week. Researchers say those who slept in on weekend, but got less sleep during the week had the same mortality rate as those we get seven hours of sleep per night.

The study found that people who sleep five hours or less per night including the weekends had higher mortality rates. In the same age group, short sleep (or long sleep) on both weekdays and weekend showed increased mortality.

"It seems that weekend compensation is good" for the sleep-needy, Akerstedt said, though he cautioned that this was a "tentative conclusion" of this new research.

The NFL Players Association said it will challenge any part of the new policy that violates the collective bargaining agreement.

"This is in effect an argument for lazing around all weekend".

"If somebody is routinely awake for more than 18 hours daily, then they are also routinely sleeping for less than six hours daily", explained Dr. Klerman. The take home point is that possibly, long weekend sleep may compensate for short weekday sleep.

Previous studies have found a U?shaped relationship between mortality and (weekday) sleep duration. He was not involved in the new study.

Twitter reacts to Warriors choking away Game 5
Houston won Game 5 despite James Harden missing all 11 of his 3-point attempts while finishing with 19 points on 5-of-21 shooting. Golden State's Andre Iguodala will miss Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets on Thursday night.

There are few things in life more satisfying than crawling into bed on Friday night knowing you'll get a well-deserved lie-on in the morning. If you don't get enough sleep, you wake up with that sleep pressure and start the day with a higher need for it.
