In order to start the week off right, I thought I would share an infographic very appropriate for a Monday, one entitled “16 Things You Didn’t Know About Sleep.” As I write this I think about how amazing sleep is and of those mornings when sleep is just too appealing to pass up. As we all know sleep is essential to life. It is one of the activities we will spend a large amount of our life engaged in.
Sleeping works better than any medicine or home remedy, sleeping is the cure-all. Whether you are recovering from activities done the night/day before or recovering from an illness, or perhaps you have 15 fifteen minutes in between classes, in all cases sleep is the answer. There is no safer or better feeling than being in between a comfortable mattress and a warm blanket.
One interesting tidbit that you may be unaware of which this infographic suggests is that color television has actually affected the way people dream. According to the infographic, 12% of people dream in black and white, but when color television was invented and became more popular, more people began dreaming in color.
As a college student I now realize the importance of sleep. Never have I treasured that time as much as I do now. I remember back when nap time existed and I used to waste that time pretending to be asleep, as I’m sure a lot of you did. Now I wish that I could have that time back. I know I would take full advantage and sleep all the way through. [via]Share This Infographic
On Tuesday I showed you the Black Friday Survival Guide, now you can learn a little more about the day itself. I personally plan on hitting up Cyber Monday, the Monday after Black Friday when everyone shops online. I’d like to think I’m web savvy, why not buy for the holidays online?

Thanks everyone! Hope you all had a delicious Turkey Day and have fun shopping! [Via]Share This Infographic
Happy Thanksgiving, or to be more politically correct, Happy Turkey Day! What a wonderful day it is today, a day full of food and spending time with friends and family. Here is a little fun fact about Turkey Day, many Americans believe that it all started with the Pilgrims and Native Americans at Plymouth, Massachusetts but evidence shows that it was being celebrated by Spaniards in Florida as early as 1565 making this the 445th anniversary.
Many of us consider Thanksgiving to be a day when it is perfectly acceptable to eat as much as we can for as long as we can and then just sit and let euphoria take over. A day when we have an endless supply of food with endless amounts of people to share it with, and if you are lucky like I have been in the past you actually have a couple of Turkey Day meals ahead of you. However there are some people who choose to not give into all their urges and remain healthy eaters today.
Today’s infographic is for those of you who dare not over eat and want to make sure your calorie count does not go over what it is supposed to be. Although some of you, who are like me and will eat until you can eat no more, may find this infographic to be entertaining and perhaps it will help you out in the gym tomorrow. This infographic provides us with serving sizes, time it will take to work something off and shows that Americans, on average, will eat 1600 calories at their Thanksgiving meal today.

All that traveling for turkey and awkward family gatherings? [Via]Share This Infographic
You are going to be filled with turkey, then you will empty your pockets the next day. Let’s go through some tips so you don’t end up screwed at the checkout or dead from a trampling.
They say on this infographic to disable your twitter, don’t. Follow some of your favorite local stores on twitter, see what deals they tweet this Friday. Also make sure to pay attention to deals your friends will tweet out.
As for snagging some limited deals, say you find an advertisement with a detailed description of what is for sale, and it has “First come, first served” on it. Say it’s offering the new Xbox Kinect, and you don’t think that you’ll be able to go in and grab one before everyone else in line does. When the doors open, just go straight to the counter and tell the employee that you except the offer for the Xbox Kinect, then it is legally yours! (As long as you pay) Yay for cutting everyone who waited in line outside!
Shopping online during Black Friday is probably the smartest thing to do. I know Newegg.com has some of the greatest deals on electronics and televisions this weekend. I got my TV at a pawn shop though, it works perfectly and I talked the guy down 100 bucks! This is another good point of shopping: Haggling. Every store has the ability to drop a price, it may be against their policy, but almost all managers can lower the price. It will never hurt to ask if you can get it for 20 bucks less.
