Can we really catch up on sleep during the weekend?

"Sunday Night Syndrome"

Our body and minds seem to do best with a daily rhythm that stays pretty much the same. Whenever we change that rhythm, we need time to adjust to the new schedule. This is what is responsible for what has been pegged "Sunday Night Syndrome."

Sunday Night Syndrome refers to how many of us try to play "catch up" on sleep lost during the week on Saturday and Sunday mornings and then cannot sleep well on Sunday nights.

To combat this, it's a good idea to get up at the same time every day, even if you did not sleep well the night before or went to bed late. This is often hard for people to accept. It seems the opposite of what we want to do. But experts say it is beneficial in the long run.
