While you were catching them all, we were catching ZZZs. Here is everything you need to know to sleep soundly this weekend: 

In honor of the latest Pokémon craze, we decided to share some important Poké-info with you. There IS a sleep status for Pokémon to take where they are inactive and unable to make a move. See, Pokémon need rest too.  (Bulbapedia)

There’s a reason why the classic American breakfast food is called “panCAKE”.

Did you know there are 12 more grams of sugar in a Dunkin Donut muffin than a Starbucks cupcake? We didn’t either… (Vox Science and Health)

Do you have trouble following the sleep pattern society has adopted as normal? Finding you can’t quite sleep through the night isn’t abnormal- in fact, many people complain of a similar issue.

It’s midway through July and we’ve all finished our OG summer reading lists. Hours of laying in the soft sand can only be accompanied by the best beach reads, so if you’re looking for a new one here’s a few to consider if you’re as obsessed with sleep as we are. (Van Winkle’s)
