The Latest Health Concern: Sleeping in on Weekends?


It seems like EVERYTHING can be bad for you, even innocent stuff like:  Kale . . . ice water . . . and now, just sleeping in on the weekends.


There's a new study out on how irregular sleep schedules can have negative consequences on your gut bacteria, which can lead to obesity, inflammation, and heart problems.


The researchers found that even a 90-minute difference in the mid-point of your sleep timing can impact your gut. That includes staying up late a couple times a week, and sleeping in a couple hours on the weekends.


Of course, what you eat and drink has a big impact on your gut . . . but the scientists say disruptions to your internal clock also play a significant role.


One researcher says, "Maintaining regular sleep patterns . . . so when we go to bed and when we wake each day . . . is an easily adjustable lifestyle behavior we can all do, that may impact your health . . . for the better."

(Easily adjustable? Even if you don't struggle with insomnia, a LOT of factors can impact our sleep . . . with many out of our control.)


(Kids . . . pets . . . noises . . . stress . . . illnesses . . . your bladder . . . the smell of Folgers in your cup.) (???)


(And even if you CAN "easily adjust" your sleep, make sure to use the correct settings . . .)


(We've heard: Sleeping MORE than 9 hours a night raises the risk of a stroke. Sleeping LESS than 7 hours can lead to heart disease. And even taking naps has been connected to higher blood pressure.)
