Why you must catch up on lost sleep in weekends

Why you must catch up on lost sleep in weekends

According to a study by Swedish and U.S. researchers, people under 65-years-old are at greater risk of death if they get less than five hours sleep on the weekends.

Researchers say you shouldn't feel guilty about catching up on your Z's.

Chris Paul listed as 'questionable' for Game 7, coach says
Their big three will have to show up if they want to go into Houston and win the conference title for a fourth consecutive season. Thompson finished with 35 points, and Curry added 29, and they combined to shoot a red-hot 14-of-28 from three-point territory.

But there was no increased risk of death for those who slept five or fewer hours during the week but then managed eight or more hours' sleep on weekend days. People under the age of 65 who slept for five hours or less every night, all week, did not live as long as those who consistently slept seven hours a night.

"The assumption in this is that weekend sleep is a catch-up sleep", said Dr Akerstedt, though he noted the study did not prove that to be the case.

'I let them down' - Karius apologises to Liverpool after final flop
In the next few days I will speak. "If there's something behind this, he should come and clarify what it is today", Ramos said. On Liverpool's night of tears in the Champions League final, goalkeeper Loris Karius cried long and hard.

The effect only applied to those under 65 as the mortality difference disappeared for people who were older. "Well, you can, but you won't live as long". "If you can function on what you get, you are likely getting the right amount of sleep", Åkerstedt noted. Will the findings of this study motivate you to change your sleep habits. Short sleepers slept for less than five hours per night. They are the ones who can compensate with longer rest on the weekends, because there is not as much of a deficit.

So when Saturday morning rolls around, go ahead and turn off your alarm clock - it's for your own good.

Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's partner pleads guilty in deal requiring cooperation
Cohen tweeted Wednesday that he was "one of the thousands" of licensed taxi operators who turned to management companies. Cohen is also said to have been helped by Felix Sater, a convicted ex-mobster and former business partner of Trump.

After a week of early starts, most people look forward to having a long lie-in on the weekend and it turns out that by doing so we're actually prolonging our life. 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. To the authors' credit, he said, they were aware they did not have a fine brush, and accordingly painted a broad outline of sleep habits.
