Transcript

People often ask me, can they catch up on their sleep on the weekends? They may be working hard during the week and getting up early, going to bed late, taking care of all the responsibilities with finally Saturday and Sunday, they have time off and they want to use it resting. Can you make up all those hours of sleep on Saturday and Sunday? Well, the short answer is no, we can't, it's not quite the same. Might make up some of our sleep deficit, but we're never going to quite catch up as much as we need. It makes a lot more sense to try to go to bed earlier or wake up later and try to keep our weekends certainly for extra rest and recreation, but we can't make up all the sleep we lost.
