Still feeling effects of the recent time change or suffering from insomnia? Do you find yourself wondering if you’ll ever be able to catch up on sleep? The answer isn’t as simple as you may think.
Studies show sleeping in on weekends isn’t enough to compensate for lost sleep during the week. It can actually take multiple days of rest to make up for just one lost hour of sleep. Instead, the healthiest way to feel refreshed is to take a 20-minute midday nap.
Consistency is also key. Put yourself on a regular daily sleep schedule, including the weekends.
