Do you skip sleep during the week and try to make it up on the weekends? Lifehack reveals that the body doesn't really work that way. Lifehacker explains, "...you can’t sleep off a debt you’ve accumulated during the week in an attempt to pay off the sleep debt." Sleeping in on the weekends won't allow you to catch up with lost weekday sleep. Research says that sleep deprivation is not only unhealthy but also leads to short term memory loss, and impacts verbal learning and cognitive understanding. Tips on getting more zzz's include going to bed when you're tired, throwing out your alarm and set reminders to turn in to bed earlier.
