Although a good night’s sleep is unmatchable to sleep at any other time of the day, many ignore this fact and deprive themselves of a sound sleep.
Missing out on the required amount of sleep can create a negative impact both physically and emotionally on people. The physical conditions could be as severe as developing cancer, diabetes or other heart-related diseases.
However, in case it is difficult to get good sleep at night, you can cover up for it on the weekends to reduce any ill-effects of the sleep deprivation throughout the week.
Individuals above 65 years of age should sleep for at least six hours a day or night to stay away from illness or mortality rate. It has also been found that those who sleep on weekends to complete the week’s lost sleep also lead an equally healthy life.
