Kinda of feeling this to some degree. I use to be a person that was very against taking naps at one time. Though life is all about learning the body needs rest to rejuvenate.

Could be, sleep is our best natural healer. Thank goodness I sleep good all week and get up on weekends the same time as during the week....Retirement gives me time to work on my health needs.

To add to this, if a person can sleep in on the weekends, why not.

My "study suggests" that is why people start dying after they retire. They start getting up the same time on weekends they do on weekdays, so they no longer "avoid dying" by sleeping in.

You rest you rust.
We all die in the end.
Salamat!

And you rest you heal.
Of course, the older we get the closer to our end we get. I'm happy to not be working anymore after 40 yrs of working out there.

I don't believe it, or any other study.

I don't believe studies because a few years after a study, they do another study and the results are totally different. And even in the article it states this particular study as not statistically robust. (Although maybe if it sleeps in this weekend it will feel stronger.)

Dream up any proposition, and a study can be found that "suggests" it. And a tabloid media source that will headline it. And it will go viral on Facebook.

One also needs to be careful of correlation/causation fallacy. There could be a factor that leads to both phenolmena. Like, people who stay up late on weeknights could introduce lifestyle differences.

I can believe it. I don’t know why, but when I know I have to get up early the next morning, I tend to sleep very light, it’s like my brain says “don’t sleep too hard, time to get up soon”. On the weekends when I know the clock won’t be going off, I go into much deeper sleep, and feel more rested.

I can tell when I lack sleep, because my face looks pale and I develop eye twitches.

I wish I could sleep in on the weekends. These days I wake up anywhere between 5:30 & 7:15 without an alarm clock. Used to be when I worked full time I could sleep 12 hours at night on the weekends. We had friends that used to laugh at my husband and I and ask how we didn't get bed sores because he would call at 11 a.m and we would still be asleep.
