Do you try to make up for lost sleep by sleeping in on the weekend?

Actually, you can within the week of lost sleep. After a week's gone by, it becomes impossible to do so.

Or the next day, or going to bed earlier, or naps.

So your telling me that after the weekend you feel completely revived, and ready for the work week ahead. Cause if that's the case I want to know your secret. But sleeping in is a privilege I lost when I had kids.

Also, you get your best sleep before midnight so going to bed at a decent time and getting up a little earlier to finish anything you didn't get to the day before is much healthier than staying up really late and getting up on time. And you're more productive in the morning after a good night's rest

Actually, they've done psychological studies on this. Your body and mind does not "make up" for missed sleep. No matter how much "extra" sleep you get on any given day, it does not make help your body recover from those nights when you do not get at least 8 hours of sleep.

I work 6 days a week and go to early Mass on Sunday, what is this "sleeping In" that you speak of? Up at 5:30 every morning

I can try to sleep in all I want but the good ol circadian rhythm doesn't allow that to happen.

Sleeping 9-10 hours a day helps you grow and helps you heal from injuries

I try... Staying out all night is way more appealing in the moment.

Weekends are for parties on the beach. Winter here. Nice in the mid 80's. summer too hot. Sick of AC. So no sleeping on the weekends. Maybe A bit in may-sept. but not a lot. Type of person that can function on 6 hrs sleep & stay up. Don't go to bed til 3, &wake up at 9 feeling refreshed! Always Have

I'm kind of used to 3-6 hours of sleep at this point...

I try but my internal alarm clock wakes me up at the same time everyday no matter if I'm working or not. I haven't used a conventional alarm clock for at least ten years. I don't need it, no matter if I go to bed at 8pm or 4am I just wake up.

How could anyone mix up questions -- unless they read the questions, answered them offline, then uploaded the answers. Wouldn't that be a little, uh, complicated?

This idea makes the most sense. I have a surgeon friend who's in bed by 9pm, and a dentist friend who's in bed by 10pm.

Being retired, I can usually sleep as late as I want to, any day of the week. Nothing to make up

I do too, however, I automatically wake up with the light of day so I get much more sleep in the winter than summer.

No, the weekend is when I spend all my time making up for the joy I haven't been able to experience.

I think they skip weekends. Instead, they have two Mondays and an extra long Wednesday!

Sleep in more than I do during the week since I don't have to get up for work, but don't sleep in even more to try and "make up for lost sleep".

I make up for lost sleep in traffic, to and from school. HAHAHAHA <-- sarcasm. -.- (I'm tired right now. This is my sense of humor when I'm tired) It's Monday morning at 5:51 - what do you expect?

Sad thing is sleeping in on the weekend is 6:45-7 am. Maybe only 1 - 1.5 hours extra.

Yes . It would be interesting to hear the comments on how they had the money but they had to give it away. With automatic collection , a lot of people don't even pay attention to the loss.

It's imperative. My "Friday" is a 21.5 hour shift that runs from Wednesday AM to Thursday AM. I invariably sleep Thursday until the afternoon, and sleep in on Friday morning. It takes me 24-48 hours to recover from my shift.
