Have you been feeling guilty about your plans to stay at home this weekend? Don’t be. Now you have another reason not to go out on the town, and it’s a very good one too. According to a recent study, sleeping in during the weekend can make you live longer.
The study was conducted by Swedish researchers and published in The Journal of Sleep Research. These scientists say that getting extra rest during the weekend is a great way to make up for all the stress and sleeplessness you faced during the week. We’re sure Lagosians can relate.
