While you were dreaming about your new crisp sheets and fluffy pillows, we kept up with these sleep stories. Everything you need to know to sleep soundly this weekend:

TIME released their annual list of the best inventions making the world better, smarter and — in some cases — more well-rested. One of top 25, Casper was included for completely upending the sleep industry. (TIME)

The Navy Seals are some of the toughest people we can think of. But much like the rest of us, they aren’t immune to the terrible side effects of missing sleep. Hallucinations, sickness, and chronic anxiety are just a few of the many documented symptoms of being forced to stay awake for days on end. Straight from a Navy Seal: if you want to regain control of your life and wellness, start prioritizing those hours under the covers. (ABC News)

Casper is taking the science of sleep beyond its mattress. Their two new products, a sheet set and pillow, complement the Casper mattress to create the perfect sleep environment. (The Huffington Post)

One of those people that’s up until the late hours of the night, but struggling to form sentences come 10 AM? Recent research indicates that students going to bed later, but also rolling out of bed later, score much higher on “inductive reasoning tests”. You judgmental morning people no longer have an argument against us night owls. Evidently, we know what we’re doing. (Marie Claire)

Whether you prefer cold-brewed, black, pour-over, or single-origin, a recent study gives us all some really great news: keep on chuggin’ that morning coffee. The study found that 3 to five cups of coffee a day lowered the risk of heart disease, as well as other serious medical conditions. We’re just going to use this as an excuse to keep on brewin’.

A home focused around sleep? An idea that we have only dreamed about, until now. The Juvo Monitor goes under your mattress and promises to track sleep patterns, heartbeat, movement and breathing. The data is transferred to a bedside unit, which offers customized tips for optimal shuteye. Bonus features include a white noise machine, smart alarm, and the capability to sync with other devices in your home, like the Nest Thermostat. (Van Winkle’s)
