Why You’re So Tired on Mondays
Love sleeping in on the weekends? It could be effing with your mood during the work week.
According to a new study from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, sleeping in on the weekends makes you feel more tired and cranky on Mondays.
What’s up with that? Researchers discovered that, instead of helping you catch up on your zzzs, sleeping in screws with your body’s internal clock, making it harder to wake up on Monday.
Their recommendation: Only sleep in an extra hour on the weekends—that small amount won’t mess with your daily sleep schedule, allowing you to wake up feeling chipper on Monday.
Okay, we understand the concept, but it’s a hard sell to get us to roll out of bed bright and early on Saturday morning after a night out. Sorry, scientists—we’ll just opt for a bigger coffee on Mondays.
