Sleeping In On Weekends Might Help You Live Longer

Now, a new study suggests a solution: You can actually "catch up" on the health benefits of sleep you missed during the week over the weekend.

Your pets may be pestering you to get up and feed them, and your spouse may want you to get started on that honey-do list, but tell them you're sleeping in this weekend.

Mr Kim and Mr Trump's initial decision to meet followed months of war threats and insults between the leaders over the programme. It will happen!" he tweeted. "And I don't know if it's going to be June 12, but I think it's going to happen", she said .

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.

Researchers from the Stress Research Institute at Stockholm University examined over 38,000 people from 1997 to 2010. Scientists have found out that people under the age of 65 who sleep for five or less hours a day are at an increased risk of premature death compared to those who sleep six or seven hours per day.

Cheapest gas prices in the Triangle
About 35 million Americans were set to hit the roads this year, a five percent increase over last year despite higher gas prices. Anyone grumbling about prices in New Jersey should be happy they're not in Los Angeles, where prices have jumped to over $4 .

Interestingly, people who slept too much, regularly hitting the hay for eight hours or longer a night, also had a worse mortality rate.

The findings are based on almost 44,000 people in Sweden over a 13-year period. The results show that among people sleeping 5 hours a day, there is a 65% higher mortality rate. "If you can function on what you get, you are likely getting the right amount of sleep", Åkerstedt noted. The take home point is that possibly, long weekend sleep may compensate for short weekday sleep. Whether that's going to bed at 8 on a Friday night, sleeping in till 11 on a Saturday morning, or snoozing in the subway on your way to meet friends, do it. Grab that sleep by the horns and don't let go - you may just live longer for it.
