"Go ahead and sleep late. Turning in and waking up at the same time every day does help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep. But if you're up late at a barbecue Friday night, your body definitely benefits from turning off your alarm and getting some extra z's the next morning. "Making up sleep in the short term does work," says Christopher Winter, M.D. medical director of the Martha Jefferson Sleep Medicine Center in Charlottesville, Virginia. You can also band some extra shut-eye beforehand if you know you're going to spend a late night out."
