The Doctors share a study with surprising findings; a study published in the Journal of Sleep Research found that people who get little sleep during the week may be able to make up for it on the weekend. ER physician expert Dr. Travis Stork says this is not at all what they had learned in medical school!
The study followed 40,000 subjects for 13 years and those who slept less than 5 hours each night during the week had an increased risk of early death compared to those who slept 6-7 hours per night. This isn’t new information. What is? Those individuals who got short amounts of sleep during the week, if they slept in on the weekend, actually improved their mortality risk. They came back up to the same category of people who got 6-7 hours per night.
Dr. Travis says his concern with this study is people may think they can under-sleep during the week and then just sleep in on the weekends. He believes the best pattern is still to get 6-7 hours per night, if not a little more, and be consistent with your sleep-wake cycle.
Dermatologist expert Dr. Sonia Batra adds that retiring the alarm clock on the weekend, at least, and sleeping in if needed, could be a healthy habit.
