Weekends are my saving grace - I wake up at 4 a.m. during the week, and I have zero qualms about sleeping until 10 on the weekends (or as late as my children allow). However, they also found that people who slept for five or fewer hours during the work week and then increased the amount they slept during the weekends experienced the same levels of mortality as people who had healthy sleep schedules throughout the entire week.

Researchers in Sweden looked at sleep data covering more than 43,000 people.

According to Torbjörn Åkerstedt, co-author of the study, these findings suggest that weekend sleep can supplement weeknight's rest, allowing your body to get the sleep it needs for good functioning.

"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. "Among individuals ≥65 years old, no association between weekend sleep or weekday/weekend sleep durations and mortality was observed".

Previous sleep studies asked people to count their hours of sleep for an average night, without distinguishing between workdays and days off. That was compared to those who slept seven hours a night. However, people who slept for less than 5 hours a night during the week could eliminate that increased risk by sleeping for more than 8 hours a night over the weekend. The adults in the study were grouped by sleep duration. The groups were again divided and paired by weekday and weekend sleep habits.

Regardless, the next time you feel bad about sleeping in more than normal, just think of it as an investment in your long-term health.

And could even help you live longer.
