  • So...your co-worker got the promotion and you didn't; your boyfriend says your conversation is as interesting as that of a garden gnome and your dog is looking askance at you for being stingy on treats...not to worry!!! Take a nap and ward off depression.  Here's what we know:
  • China's Central South University analyzed data on 8000 people
  • In general, the people who slept an extra 2 hours on the weekend were up to 46% less likely to show signs of depression
  • They were compensating for sleep time lost to their high-pressure week
  • The linkage of less depression and more sleep was stronger in men under 65 years old
  • Nearly 300 million people worldwide suffer from depression
  • 2 hours catch-up sleep on the weekend may ward off depression and as you'll be more awake...you may be more interesting than a garden gnome.
