On his blog The Sleep Doctor, Michael Breus answers his audience’s questions about winter and sleep.

Q: I want to sleep A LOT more in wintertime. Is that okay?

A: I hear this from patients and readers a lot. Broadly speaking, your sleep needs do not change from season to season. If you’re sick, you may need to sleep more for a few nights. But winter does not bring a need for additional sleep.
