'These results indicate that sleep regularity, beyond sleep duration alone, plays a significant role in our health, ' said lead author Sierra B. Forbush, a research assistant at the university's Sleep and Health Research Program.
Scientists discovered that 85 percent of people wake up later on the weekends, and they have linked the pattern to bad moods and chronic fatigue. "Regular sleep schedule may be an effective, relatively simple, and low-priced preventative treatment for heart disease as well as many other health problems", lead author Sierra B.

"Social jet lag" is a term that describes what happens when people go to sleep and wake up later on weekends than they do during the week.
Social jet lag was assessed using the sleep timing questionnaire and was calculated by subtracting weekday from weekend sleep midpoint. This study contained responses gathered from 984 adults between 22 years and 60 years. The results were also presented at SLEEP 2017, which is the 31st Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, held in Boston, MA.
While this may seem like a normal thing for many, a new study begs to differ, calling this habit social jet lag. The participants' overall health was self-reported using a standardized scale, and the questions on the survey covered insomnia, sleep duration, cardiovascular disease, fatigue and sleepiness.
