You Will Live Longer If You Sleep More on Saturdays and Sundays

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

"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", a section of the research read.

But before you hit the sack to celebrate, the study also found there can be too much of a good thing.

However, research has often overlooked what happens on your days off, said sleep researcher Torbjörn Åkerstedt, co-author of a study published in the Journal of Sleep Research.

Inadequate sleep has always been proven as a trigger and cause for mental and physical illnesses and even leading to an early death.

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

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends adults aged 18-60 get at least seven hours of sleep per night. The findings showed that people who slept for short amounts of time during the week and the weekend had a 52% increased rate of mortality.

The effect only applied to those under 65 as the mortality difference disappeared for people who were older.

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.

Sleep is something you need to replenish regularly if you don't want to hurt your health.

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.

"I think people like the idea that you can compensate for lost sleep", Åkerstedt said.
