However, those who catch up with sleep during the weekends and for that period sleep for 8 hours or more per day do not have an increased risk of premature death.

Torbjörn Åkerstedt, professor at the, led the study, in which his team assessed data gathered from a cohort of 43,880 participants over the course of 13 years.

Researchers have carried out a study to determine how lack of sleep during the week and weekend can correspond with an individual's mortality rate.

There's no clear-cut answer yet on why sleeping on weekends makes a difference.

"Sleep duration is important for longevity", said Dr Torbjorn Akerstedt, first author of the study, at the Stress Research Institute at Stockholm University, and Karolinska Institute, also in the Swedish capital. In the same age group, short sleep (or long sleep) on both weekdays and weekend showed increased mortality.

However, the effect of short sleeps over a few days may be countered by a later lie-in.

Previous studies have found a U‐shaped relationship between mortality and (weekday) sleep duration. Researchers say those who slept in on weekend, but got less sleep during the week had the same mortality rate as those we get seven hours of sleep per night. Possibly, long weekend sleep may compensate for short weekday sleep. He was not involved in the new study. Probably. But do I feel somewhat like human being again after two days of sleeping late?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends adults aged 18-60 get at least seven hours of sleep per night.

Self-reporting is a "limitation but is not a fatal flaw", Grandner said. That's not a healthy approach - as our bodies are built to consume food and water, he pointed out, we are also built to sleep.
