Sleeping Through the Holidays

Sleeping Through the Holidays

Don’t sweat it—it can actually be good for you, says researcher Till Roenneberg, Ph. D., of the University of Munich. His research has shown that weekday sleep schedules that force us to wake up earlier than when we’re ready are causing a kind of “social jet lag,” leaving us feeling drained and sleep-deprived—particularly older kids and young adults, whose internal clocks tend to be set later than little kids’.

So despite what you’ve heard about sticking to a schedule and getting up early on days off, sleeping late over the holidays and on weekends can actually allow your body to catch up, says Roenneberg. Then, before heading back to the daily grind, slowly start easing your family into an earlier schedule.
