While you were passed out post-Thanksgiving feast, we stayed up to date with these sleep stories. Everything you need to know to sleep soundly this weekend:

We’re all familiar with the desire to kick off the dress shoes and curl up on the couch after eating two-days’-worth of calories. But what’s really going on inside your body that brings about that inevitable food coma? (Tech Insider)

Obsessed with staying busy and fitting in as many things as possible into our day, we’ve finally all united under one accomplishment: we’re all sleep deprived. The worst part about it? According to a German study, it’s now known to be one of the biggest leaders in the cause of stress. (Van Winkle’s)

If you’re guilty of falling asleep with your phone in bed, this may get you to finally kick the habit. Disrupted sleep from constant buzzing, blue light alerting your brain to stay awake, and temptation to constantly check social media before passing out are just a few reasons it’s best to keep your phone far away from you at night. But another to add to the terrible list of consequences? Chemical burns!  (Van Winkle’s)

Like to cuddle up with your pet when you hit the pillow? As cozy as it may be, it might not be the best for getting a good night’s sleep. Certain factors of your environment your pets affect–such as allergens, odors, movements, sounds–could be having a huge impact on the quality of your sleep. (The Huffington Post)

One month after they wow’ed us with their all-day breakfast, McDonald’s is debuting another game changer: the breakfast burger mashup. Now, at certain locations, you can add an egg to your burger to make the ultimate “mashup.” Turning dinner food into breakfast food? You’ve made our dreams come true, yet again. (Yahoo)

A Harvard scientist just finished a 40-year study on the effects of coffee on the human body. People who drink more coffee it turns out, live longer. (Business Insider)
