Most of us love a good weekend sleep in – and now, you don’t have to feel guilty about it.
Today.com reports that scientists have finally confirmed that catching up on your sleep on the weekend has many health benefits.
A brand new study has found that just two days of “make-up sleep” (eg, the weekend) is enough to fix the metabolic damage sleep deprivation causes.
University of Colorado assistant research professor Josiane Broussard, who worked on the study, said your body would thank you after a good sleep in.
"You are going to improve your insulin sensitivity and giving yourself permission to sleep in … prevents your future diabetes risk," he said.
