If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that nothing feels quite as good as a full night's sleep. When you sleep well, it sets the tone for the rest of your day. You wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go. It's almost like the world knows when you sleep well: your morning coffee hits just right, the sun shines just a little brighter, and you've got a little extra pep in your step.
Your friends and colleagues may notice, too, especially if good sleep is becoming a foreign concept for you. If it is, you're not alone - according to the CDC, people around the U.S. are in need of some serious zzzz's - more than 1 in 3 Americans aren't getting enough sleep. Perhaps even more shocking is that 40% of people fall asleep during the day once a month, according to the National Institutes of Health. Experts agree that most folks should get at least seven hours of sleep a night, but in reality, most Americans struggle to get five or six.
While some ultra-rich CEOs claim they only need a few hours of sleep a night, that's not true for most people. In fact, your body and brain will hate you if you're not getting enough shuteye. If you're feeling sluggish, unmotivated, snappy, achy, sick, or just down in the dumps, you may not be getting enough sleep. And it may not be your fault - that old, dilapidated innerspring mattress that you're sleeping on may be the true culprit.
Fortunately, Sleep King is here to help you get on the fast track to falling asleep with the ultimate comfort of MLILY mattresses in Athens, GA.

Take a moment and think about all the different things that have happened in your life over the last decade. Maybe you graduated college or got the job of your dreams. Perhaps you got married or moved to a new home in a new state. But if you're like the average person, one thing remained the same: your mattress. It might be surprising to hear, but the average lifespan of a mattress is between seven and ten years.
Letting go of your old, worn-out mattress might be hard, especially if it's served you well over time. As with most products, however, nothing lasts forever. But how do you know when it's time to ditch your old bed and choose a new MLILY mattress in , GA? Here are just a few of the most common reasons that customers tell us when it comes to buying a new bed.
Is your mattress starting to smell less like roses and more like the dirty socks in your hamper? When your mattress gets smelly, it's most often a result of mold, fungi, and mildew buildup over time. There's not too much you can do to avoid this from happening, especially if you live in a humid climate. So, the next time you change your sheets, give your mattress a sniff. If it smells funky, it's time to upgrade.
If your mattress has a noticeable sag, it's a surefire sign that you need to get a new mattress. Mattresses sag because, over time, coils begin to weaken, and memory foam loses elasticity. If you lay down on your bed for a moment, get up, and your bed sags instead of returning to its original appearance, your mattress is nearing the end of its life.
Waking up in pain is basically the an thesis of what a mattress is supposed to do. Due to wear and tear over time, even the best mattresses lose their ability to support your body. If you've been waking up with dull aches and pains in your hips, lower back, or shoulders, it's a red flag. Finding a comfortable, supportive mattress like an MLILY Fusion Lux is of utmost importance.
Constantly moving side-to-side or switching positions in the middle of the night is a great way to get your partner angry. It's also a big sign that you need to consider buying a new mattress. Like the supportiveness of our mattresses, general comfortability also lessens with usage and time. Here's the truth: You shouldn't need to toss and turn to get comfortable in your bed. If you are, your mattress has probably declined in quality and needs replacing. You shouldn't ever have to put your sleep health on the line for an uncomfortable mattress.
It might sound obvious, but the #1 reason why people choose to buy a new mattress is to get better sleep. Sleep, in and of itself, is a bit of a mystery - somehow, our bodies just know when it's time to clock out for the day and go to sleep. But if you've been sleeping on a poor quality or dilapidated mattress for long enough, you might have become used to the feeling of lackluster sleep. If that sounds like you, we're here to tell you that you're missing out.
Getting a great night's rest is one of life's little pleasures, but according to experts, it's also much more than that. If you swear by limiting your sleep to be more "productive," you may be doing yourself a disservice.
When you don't get enough sleep on a regular basis, it can lead to serious heart issues like high blood pressure and even heart attacks. Why? Because poor sleep causes your body to release cortisol. This stress hormone causes your heart to work harder. That's great in some situations, but long stretches of poor sleep are quite bad for your heart. Like other parts of your body, your heart needs to rest in order to function correctly.
Getting a cold is never fun. But if it feels like someone slapped your head with an anvil when you get the sniffles, you may need better sleep. When you get great sleep, the proteins and immune cells in your body have a better chance of fighting off things like the common cold and flu. Your immune system also helps mitigate symptoms like runny noses, congestion, headaches, and more. Without the right sleep, symptoms from colds and cases of flu will be much worse.
Do you roll out of bed and feel like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh? You're probably not getting great sleep. When you sleep well, you wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and ready to attack the day. Your energy levels are high, making life's little annoyances more manageable. And when you're not annoyed, you're typically not angry. When you're not angry, you're only a half-step away from being happy. So, put on our PJs and get to bed early on an MLILY mattress in , GA. Your friends and family will thank you!
Earlier, we mentioned how some people purposely lose sleep so that they can be more productive. On the surface, that makes some sense since you have more hours in the day to dedicate to work. However, burning the midnight oil again and again is a bad idea. Eventually, you'll start making mistakes that an afternoon pot of coffee won't fix. Instead of cutting your sleep short, try getting more. Studies show that great sleep is linked to higher cognitive function and improved concentration. If you're not purposely limiting your sleep, it's time to ditch that old mattress and swing by Sleep King.
Getting eight or more hours of sleep doesn't mean you're going to lose lbs. overnight. But getting better sleep can seriously help with your diet or weight loss goals. When you get poor sleep, your body creates a hormone called ghrelin that causes you to get hungry. It also lowers the amounts of leptin in your body, which is a hormone that lets you know you're full. With great sleep, these hormones remain balanced, so you don't wake up finding for a sugary bowl of Captain Crunch.
If you're sick of mediocre sleep and want to take on tomorrow with a fresh mind, better sleep begins with MLILY mattresses in Athens GA. When you trust our mattress store in Athens for MLILY mattresses, you're already taking the first steps towards better sleeping habits.
From cold-to-the-touch mattresses like the Fusion Luxe to popular hybrid bed options like the Fusion Supreme Hybrid Mattress, Sleep King has got you covered. With a vast selection of bed frames, adjustable bases, bedroom decor, and even whole-home furnishings, you won't have to look anywhere else besides our showroom in Athens.

ATHENS----- Georgia (8-3) continues a stretch of five games in five different parks Tuesday night as the Bulldogs face Georgia Southern (7-4) at SRP Park in N. Augusta, S.C., before heading to Statesboro for a Wednesday tilt with the Eagles.
Last Friday, Georgia played #16 Ga. Tech in a three-game series, winning game one in Athens 7-2, blasting the Yellow Jackets 16-6 in Atlanta and then missing out on a sweep by falling 4-1 Sunday at Coolray Field, home of the Gwinnett Stripers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. Sunday's game was the 20th annual Spring Baseball Classic to benefit Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
The Eagles bounced back to win a road series over Central Florida after the Knights posted a 6-4 walk-off in Friday's opener. GSU outscored the Knights 30-15 in the final two games of the series. GSU is batting .302 with a .403 slugging percentage. The Eagles have a 5.13 ERA and a .980 fielding percentage. They are 5-3 at home this year.
SRP Park is home of the Augusta GreenJackets. The Bulldogs will be the home team Tuesday and first pitch will be at 6:35 p.m.
Series History: Georgia leads the all-time series with the Eagles 60-53-1 as it dates to 1972. Last year, Georgia won the series 2-1, falling at SRP Park 13-5 before winning in Statesboro 5-1 and then in Athens 7-2. The Eagles are 2-0 against the Bulldogs at SRP, winning 1-0 in 2020 and the 2022 contest.
Knocking The Cover Off Of It: Through 11 games, Georgia has been smashing the baseball, tallying a .319 batting average with 28 doubles, 23 home runs and a .588 slugging percentage. Redshirt-freshman Charlie Condon has put a jolt in the lineup, batting an SEC-leading and team-best .538-4-20. He is the SEC Co-Player of the Week after hitting .588 (10-for-17) in four games last week with three home runs and eight RBI. Juniors Parks Harber (.267-5-13) and Corey Collins (.355-4-9) have combined for nine home runs. In fact, the Bulldogs have hit at least one home run in nine of 11 games this year. They are 1-1 when they don't hit a home run (Beat #16 Ga. Tech 7-2 in Athens; Lost to #16 Tech 4-1 at Coolray Field). The most home runs by Georgia in a home game has been five in a 11-6 win over Presbyterian while they most on the road is six in a 16-6 win over #16 Tech in Atlanta. Graduate Connor Tate (.476-2-12) has a 16-game hitting streak dating back to last year while Condon has hit safely in his last 10 games.
On The Mound: The Bulldogs have a 4.73 ERA. Tuesday's starter will be redshirt-junior LHP Charlie Goldstein (0-0, 6.43 ERA) while Wednesday's starter is TBA. The Eagles have not announced their rotation. The early season Bulldog bullpen stalwarts have been graduates Dalton Rhadans (0-0, 1.29 ERA, 1 SV, 7 IP, 0BB, 10K) and Kyle Greenler (0-0, 3.18 ERA, 5.2 IP, 3BB, 8K) plus junior transfer Zach DeVito (0-0, 2.25 ERA, 4 IP, 2BB, 5K). Meanwhile, freshman Matthew Hoskins (0-0, 2.45 ERA, 1BB, 8K) had an impressive performance this past Sunday against #16 Ga. Tech. He tossed two scoreless frames with five strikeouts. Also of note, freshman Kolten Smith (0-0, 2.70 ERA) has showed flashes of dominating stuff in a pair of relief appearances with six strikeouts in 3.1 innings.

ATHENS — Georgia women’s tennis coach Jeff Wallace recorded a milestone victory — his 800th — when the Bulldogs beat Missouri 4-0 on Sunday
Wallace reflected on the accomplishment with GeorgiaDogs.com staff writer John Frierson earlier this week, noting his humble beginnings in Athens some 38 years ago in Frierson’s in-depth piece
“You kind of start, you get your first job, you’re excited and you want to build something that’s special,” said Wallace, originally from Portland, Ore.
“You take over team that had never had a national ranking and had a losing record the year before, and you go, ‘Well, this is an opportunity to build something special in one of the greatest college towns in America,’ ” Wallace said. “It’s an amazing place and I pinch myself that I’ve only had one job and have been able to stay here this long. It’s been a heck of a ride.”
UGA has made sure Wallace has had some of the most elite facilities to recruit to in the nation, in addition to the strong in-state recruiting most all Bulldogs’ programs benefit from.
More than $30 million has been poured into the Georgia tennis facilities over the past five years, including a $26.7 million renovation to the indoor facility targeted for completion in December.
Wallace, who has won two NCAA championships (1994, 2000) and four USA/ITA Indoor titles (1994, 1995, 2002, 2019), has everything it takes to compete for what would be a third NCAA title.
Wallace is the winningest active head women’s tennis coach in the country, and his 800 wins rank second only to former Indiana coach Lin Loring, who had 846 over his 44 seasons.
“You never really ever want it to be about you — it’s about the University of Georgia,” Wallace told Frierson. “It’s about the athletic department, women’s tennis, and it’s mostly about all of these great players that have come through this program.”
Wallace came through UGA himself, although his career started in Utah. Indeed, Wallace became a transfer before it was fashionable, switching over to George for the final two years of his collegiate career.
“It was always a dream to be able to play at a school like this, and then to be able to coach at your alma mater, that’s super special in itself,” Wallace said in the GeorgiaDogs.com story. “For me, I feel super fortunate that I’ve spent my whole career here at this school that I absolutely love.”
Fifth-year UGA player Meg Kowalski explained how special it is to be a part of Wallace’s 800th win.
“It’s so incredible and it’s such an honor to be on the team that’s a part of 800, as it was for the players that were there for 700 or 600,” Kowalski said to Frierson after last Sunday’s match.
“He’s so deserving of all this, and he’s really built this program. To see him continuing to reach milestones like this is so amazing.”
No. 6-ranked Georgia women’s team is off to a 9-3 start this season and next play at Kentucky at noon on Friday.
1. #28 Guillermina Grant/Mai Nirundorn (UGA) def. Inah Canete/Mae Canete (MIZ) 6-22.

ATHENS – An after-dinner cup of coffee might be required to catch Georgia in the SEC Tournament this week.
ExploreBulldogs end regular season with fifth straight loss
The Bulldogs’ postseason fate actually was sealed with its loss to Florida last Tuesday night in Athens. The only question was what team the Bulldogs would face in the first round late this Wednesday night in Nashville.
That question was answered with this past Saturday’s games. Georgia drew LSU for what’s scheduled as a 9 p.m. tip on Wednesday.
The Bulldogs (16-15, 6-12 SEC) could not move up or down in the seedings regardless of the outcome of its contest against South Carolina on Saturday. As it turned out, Georgia dropped its fifth game in a row when it lost to the Gamecocks 61-55 in Columbia.
The Tigers (13-18, 2-16) finished 14th – or last in the league -- with a 79-67 loss to Florida this past Saturday.
The winner of Georgia-LSU’s late-night affair will return to Bridgestone Arena the next night to take on Vanderbilt. The Commodores (18-13, 11-7) tied Missouri and Tennessee for the fourth-most conference wins, but finished sixth on a series of tiebreakers.
The Bulldogs beat LSU 65-63 on Feb. 14 in Athens. It ended up being their last victory of the regular season. Georgia dropped an 85-82 decision to the Commodores on Jan. 21, also in Athens.
In Georgia’s Mike White and LSU’s Matt McMahon, the Bulldogs’ opening game will match two of the league’s six new coaches this season. Missouri’s Dennis Gates won the battle of the newbies this season as the Tigers (23-8, 11-7) finished as the No. 4 seed. The others are Florida’s Todd Golden, Mississippi State’s Todd Golden and South Carolina’s Lamont Parris.
ExploreGame-by-game look at regular-season schedule
White emerged from Saturday’s disappointing loss to the Gamecocks undeterred in his mission to rebuild the Bulldogs.
“I will continue to do what I do and what we do as a staff: Challenge these guys; motivate them; love them,” White told reporters in Columbia on Saturday. “We have a great group of guys. We’ve done some good things this year. We have achieved a lot.”
One more win would give the Bulldogs their most victories since 2018. It also would assure them of a winning overall record.
White came to Georgia after seven seasons at Florida. He’s eager to see what the Bulldogs can do in a win-or-go-home, tournament environment.
“It’s a new chapter,” he said. “Everyone gets a clean slate. Anything can happen in conference tournaments and this is our final chapter. How will we react?”
