Sleeping in on weekends may extend your life

A recent study by Brigham and Women's Hospital has confirmed that sleep deprivation negatively impacts your work performance even when you do not feel tired

The authors from Stockholm's Karolinska Institute tracked the sleep of more than 43,000 people for 13 years from 1997.

However there is a higher mortality risk if a person is consistently getting less than five hours sleep or more than nine hours sleep, compared to people who are consistently sleeping around six to seven hours a night throughout the week.

While the absence of Kyrie Irving from late-season knee surgery finally, and ultimately, caught up to the Celtics. Celtics: Paul Pierce , whose number was retired by the Celtics this season, cheered the team on from courtside.

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. People who slept too much, regularly conking out for eight hours or longer a night, also had a worse mortality rate.

The team pointed out that they only assessed individuals aged 65 or under, not bearing the sleeping habits and mortality rates of those older in mind. "Well, you can, but you won't live as long". For under-65s, they found while sleeping fewer than five hours a night increased mortality by 52 percent, the increased chance of death could be wiped out by getting the right amount once or twice a week. Short sleepers slept for less than five hours per night. This study was not an experiment, Akerstedt emphasized, and these data can not show that short or long sleep is responsible for higher mortality. "It's a requirement", said Grandner, director of the Sleep and Health Research Program and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry in the University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson.
