“You Snooze, You Lose: More Weekend Sleep Cuts Kids’ Obesity Risk”

| 0 comments

“You Snooze, You Lose: More Weekend Sleep Cuts Kids’ Obesity Risk” is an article from TIME Magazine.

It analyzes a study that finds that “sleeping-in” during the weekends can mitigate some of the problems lack of sleep during the week can cause teenagers. However, it emphasizes that not getting enough sleep during the week still increases the risk of obesity — the increase just isn’t as large if they try to make it up on the weekend.

I’m adding the article to The Best Resources For Helping Teens Learn About The Importance Of Sleep.
