Sleep in this weekend

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

But people who managed less than five hours each day for a week, then around six to seven hours at the weekend were no more likely to die than those who consistently slept six to seven hours a day over the same period.

The study found that people who sleep five hours or less per night including the weekends had higher mortality rates.

Torbjörn Åkerstedt, a professor and director of the Stress Research Institute at Stockholm University told CNN he was quite surprised by the findings on sleep during off days. The study's authors followed 38,015 survey participants over 13 years to track their mortality rates. "I suspected there might be some modification if you included also weekend sleep, or day-off sleep".

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 sleepers.

"Short sleep (or long sleep) on both weekdays and weekend showed increased mortality".

Italy's 5-star leader says president should be impeached
The parliamentary election, held on March 4, failed to produce a clear victor but saw support for traditional parties collapse. Paolo Savona has likened Italy to being in a "cage" of austerity restrictions favoured by fellow eurozone member Germany.

However, people who slept for short amounts of time during the week, but compensated for it by sleeping in on the weekends, displayed normal rates of mortality.

Previous studies have found a U?shaped relationship between mortality and (weekday) sleep duration. That, Dr Akerstedt said, was perhaps because older individuals got the sleep they needed.

Scientists in the Journal of Sleep Research conducted a study on the sleep patterns of adults.

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.

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.
