"If somebody is routinely awake for more than 18 hours daily, then they are also routinely sleeping for less than six hours daily", explained Dr. Klerman. Among individuals ≥65 years old, no association between weekend sleep or weekday/weekend sleep durations and mortality was observed.

Previous studies have found a U‐shaped relationship between mortality and (weekday) sleep duration. The groups were again divided and paired by weekday and weekend sleep habits. A survey of their sleep habits over that time found that people under 65 who slept less than five hours every night had a mortality rate 65 percent higher than people sleeping at least six hours a night. "It's a fundamental part of our biology, like breathing". If you don't get enough sleep, you wake up with that sleep pressure and start the day with a higher need for it. "If you eat OK during the week and you splurge a little on the weekend, you probably aren't hurting your health, but if you eat crap all week, no amount of Brussels sprouts or kale that you eat on the weekends can make up for that", he said.
