Even if we keep a well-regulated sleep schedule during the week, we may find ourselves sleeping longer on the weekends, or allowing our bedtimes to slide back a bit later. Situations like this, when our life rhythms vary between weekdays and weekends, can confuse our biological clock, causing a condition known as social jet lag. This may cause increased risk to our health and can also negatively influence how well we function the next day.
If you’ve ever felt unwell because you slept too much on the weekend, social jet lag could have been the cause. The problem was not that you slept for a long time, but that you had accumulated a sleep debt.
