A large-scale study that included 38 000 people has proven that people who sleep until later on Saturdays and Sundays are not at risk from the same health problems. Looking at data from 44,000 people in Sweden, they found that people who slept for five or fewer hours per day experienced higher rates of morality than those who slept for six or seven hours per day. There is also no risk of early death.
The scientists discovered that people who slept five hours or fewer during the week, but got over eight hours of rest on the weekends, did not have any increase in their mortality rate.
According to new research, getting extra sleep on the weekend can undo the damage of failing to get enough during the week, ultimately helping you live longer.
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. The latest study, published last week in the Journal of Sleep Research, address the association of both weekday and weekend sleep duration with overall mortality.
Not having a sufficient amount of sleep obviously isn't ideal, as it's been linked to having a higher risk of developing conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
The study considered factors such as sex, weight, physical activity, smoking, stress at work. Researchers say that older people need less sleep and they also sleep more during the week.
After a long week of working, most people like to just sleep in all day during the weekends.
Previous studies have found a U?shaped relationship between mortality and (weekday) sleep duration.
With all these factors combined, clearly for most , going to the beach or a barbecue was the better option this holiday weekend. And if you don't know what they want, it's time to find someone in charge who does.
