  2. 2. • The latest news about sleeping in from the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, which published a study of over 400 participants who went to sleep and woke up later on the weekends than on workdays. Unfortunately, as reported in the New York Times, “sleeping late on days off was linked to lower HDL (good) cholesterol, higher triglycerides, higher insulin resistance and higher body mass index” in the experimental participants — even after controlling for a variety of other health factors.
  3. 3. • In other words, changes in sleep pattern trash your metabolism and cardiovascular system, which are essential for good health. • Though further research is definitely required, studies now indicate that disrupted sleep patterns (like jet lag) impair memory and give you Alzheimer’s-like symptoms.
  4. 4. SLEEPING IN CAN MASK YOUR SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER • Are you sleeping in for fun, or do you have genuinely disturbed energy levels? The latter can be a symptom of seasonal affective disorder, so you need to be honest with yourself every time you hit that snooze. There isn’t much to lose by attempting not to sleep in, because it’s bad for you in other ways too, and if you really can’t stop you might need to think about treating your seasonal affective disorder directly.
  5. 5. SLEEPING IN CAN MASK YOUR SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER • Does sleeping in even feel that good in the first place? Though the extra time you spend actually in bed might be great, if you experience a “sleep hangover” after sleeping in, you’re definitely not alone. When your body was expecting wake up, it prepared itself for a morning surge of energy, but you weren’t awake to experience it. So the ill effects of sleeping in can begin right away, not just far in the future.
