Don’t wake me, I plan on sleeping in

Shout out to The Postal Service. Everyone knows they should probably sleep more, but you know how weeknights are. You’re tired of all the day’s crap so you stay up late just to get some chill time. But by the weekend you’re exhausted from doing that five days in a row, so you sleep in. Turns out, that’s a good thing. Researchers found that a longer snooze on the weekends can counteract the negative effects of sleep loss during the week, reducing mortality risk to the same level of those who sleep enough every night. So if your kids come barraging into your room on the weekends, you can tell them Don’t Wake Daddy… or he’ll die. Sorry, it’s hard to stay away from the melodrama on this one.
