You get an extra hour of sleep, but does that mean you feel rested?


We get an extra hour of sleep with daylight saving time in the fall, but that doesn't mean you might feel rested.

There's a new study in Scientific Reports that talks about shifting your sleep cycle, and how it can mess with everything from your heart to your mood.

This study looked at something called the Sleep regularity index or SRI.

Researchers found irregular sleep patterns not only lead to trouble sleeping, but also daytime drowsiness.

It also adds to a greater risk for heart disease, being overweight, high blood pressure and diabetes.

It also appears to increase perceived stress and depression which can lead to other life problems.
