Sleeping In On Weekends Might Prevent Early Death

Sleeping in saves lives Go Ahead and Sleep In This Weekend: New Study Says It'll Make You Live Longer

A recent study by Brigham and Women's Hospital has confirmed that sleep deprivation negatively impacts your work performance even when you do not feel exhausted.

Sleeping in on weekends might make up for the negative health effects of not getting enough rest during the week, according to study results published this week in the Journal of Sleep Research.

The mortality rate among participants with short sleep during weekdays, but long sleep during weekends, did not differ from the rate of the reference group.

Torbjörn Åkerstedt, a clinical neuroscience professor at Sweden's Karolinska Institute and one of the authors of the paper, said the findings are similar with previous research into sleep duration and the connection to mortality.

A superior metaphor, he said, is a diet.

The time that all hockey fans have been waiting for has arrived. "It'll be a challenge", Fleury said of Ovechkin. Vegas might have more gas in the tank because it needed just 15 games (12-3) to get to the title round.


Researchers took various factors into account, such as gender, education, body mass index, severe disease, use of hypnotics (like sleeping pills, ) as well as things like smoking, alcohol intake, physical activity, coffee intake and employment status.

The study also found that the link between sleep patterns and mortality disappeared for those aged 65 or older. Short sleepers slept for less than five hours per night.

Interestingly, people who slept too much, regularly hitting the hay for eight hours or longer a night, also had a worse mortality rate. People in their late teens and 20s slept on average for seven hours a night during the week but 8.5 hours on days off. This study was not an experiment, Akerstedt emphasized, and these data can not show that short or long sleep is responsible for higher mortality. That was compared to those who slept seven hours a night.

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".

Self-reporting may be considered a limitation of the study, but researchers note it's a practical way to accumulate large-scale data.
