While you were busy recovering from the McGriddle-induced food coma, we stayed up to date with these sleep stories. Everything you need to know to sleep soundly this weekend:

The era of all-day breakfast kicked off on Tuesday, October 6. That means that around the nation, McDonald’s customers can order breakfast items past the usual cut-off time of 10:30 a.m. Here are five things you need to know before you get in line. (TIME)

A recent study found that the quality of sleep across the country varies by region. There are apparently 84 “hotspots” of poor sleep, and 45 “coldspots” of people getting decent quality zzz’s. Now that we’ve identified where people aren’t sleeping well, we can start looking at why it’s happening. (The Guardian)

It’s no secret that we take our morning coffee very, very seriously. From taste to temperature to the mug selection, it all matters. Ember, an incredible new smartphone app controls a mug that will help us keep our coffee the way we like it. Just dial the heat to the exact degree you desire for the connected thermos, and sip away. (Van Winkle’s)

Sleep paralysis is when you wake up at night unable to move, often having crazy hallucinations. It’s absolutely terrifying, and the absolute worst kind of nightmare that we can think of. Researchers are still trying to figure out the cause, but luckily there is a good chance of effective treatment in the future.  (Quartz)

Having trouble sleeping at night? Usually stress is the culprit. The good news? Adding meditation into your nighttime routine can definitely help you sleep soundly. (Van Winkle’s)

Uh oh, waking up might become an even greater struggle than it is now. Do you usually chug several cups of joe before you head out the door? Well, apparently so is everyone else. Consumption has increased so much, that apparently production could have to ramp up by 40 to 50 million bags in the next decade to keep up with demand. (The Huffington Post)
