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 Columbus, 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 Columbus GA. When you trust our mattress store in Columbus 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.

“I’m sorry that that happened to you, but next time pay attention to your surroundings," says Edward Murray, owner of the pit bull that attacked Kim Golden.
COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - New details about the dog attack that forced a Columbus woman to have her leg partially amputated earlier this week. The attacked happened in the Waverly Terrance neighborhood.
The owner claims to be heartbroken, he says he’s sorry all of this happened and also says it was not his dogs fault.
Columbus homeowner Edward Murray stood outside of his home explaining to News Leader 9′s Gabriela Johnson how Columbus resident Kim Golden was attacked by his pit bull, Cowboy.
You may recall Golden’s interview from her hospital bed in Atlanta’s Grady Hospital, the story shared Friday.
She’s the chief operating officer of NeighborWorks Columbus, a non profit organization that finds housing for people in need.
“One of the things we do sometimes is acquire homes in that condition and fix them up and get them in the hands of someone that needs it,” says Golden.
She was inspecting a house on Curtis Street Wednesday when the pit bull attacked her. That attack caused her to have to undergo several surgeries ending with her leg being amputated at the knee.
“I feel sorry for that lady believe me, I am so sorry that that happened ma’am, but you came onto my property,” says Murray.
Golden and her co-worker walked between the two properties during that inspection.
“I’m walking around to the front while I check the side of the house, and then next thing I remember is the dog was kind of coming up. I actually thought he was being friendly. Next thing, I know he is on my leg,” says Golden.
“Why would she walk that way there and y’all knew the dog was there,” says Murray.
WTVM has obtained video of the entire nearly 3 minute attack, but we will not show the actual attack out of respect to Golden and the brutality of the video.
Murray says that cowboy was doing his job to protect.
“After all these robberies and break-ins and stuff, my wife is elderly and myself, after all this time we need protection,” says Murray.
During the attack 5 different people can be seen trying to get the dog off of Golden. One person used a brick, two people tried pepper spray, another using what seemed to be a garden tool, and someone else uses a steel pipe. All trying to get the pit bull to loosen its grip.
After the attack Golden could be seen crawling away and attempting to rest her body near the curb. That is around the time when Sergeant Earl Osbin with the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office was flagged down by a witness, he treated the wound until paramedics arrived.
“That’s the worst bite I’ve ever seen, I’ve been in service for 35 years, with the Sheriff’s Office for 35 years and I’ve never seen a bite like that,” says Orbin.
At this time, Golden does not have any comments towards Murray’s claims. Cowboy is still in quarantine at the animal control center.
“She did not provoke the dog, they forgot the dog was out there and the dog was on the porch,” says Murray, “I’m sorry that that happened to you, but next time pay attention to your surroundings.”

A Columbus veteran intends to shake up the moving industry with the use of music, food, surprises and a pink zebra mascot named Zeke.
Richard Ralph is the owner and operator of Pink Zebra Moving’s new Columbus location. Ralph served in the military for 22 years and explained how he incorporated some techniques he has from his military background along with Pink Zebra’s mission to make moving fun to create a new type of customer experience.
Employees have been trained to track maintenance, perform inspections that are based on the military’s pre-combat checks, and complete walk-throughs ensuring customers have everything they need. But Pink Zebra’s primary goal is to make moving stress-free for their customers.
“We feel like moving, in a word, sucks,” Pink Zebra founder Ron Holt told the Ledger-Enquirer. “We will just try to make that experience as fun as possible.”
One of the ways the company hopes to set itself apart from other moving companies is by providing customers with a free meal the night before their move. This is often a welcome surprise to customers, Holt said.
“Nobody thinks about what they’re going to eat the night before a move,” he said. “And then all of a sudden they look around the kitchen and everything’s boxed up or packed. All the dishes are gone.”
When customers book the moving company, they should expect to have communication with Pink Zebra employees every day whether it’s by the phone, text or email, Holt said. This helps people on both sides know what to expect during the move.
The communication and the walk-throughs are also a chance for employees to get to know customers and what their interests are. They use this information to put together a surprise box that is left behind for customers to find after employees leave.
For example, if employees help a household where one person is an Auburn fan and the other is a Georgia fan, they might get some house-divided items to put in the box with a personal note.
“The reality is after the moving company leaves, you look around and all you see is a lot of work still left to do,” Holt said. “We’re trying to make somebody have a little bit of fun with that.”
Customers should also not be surprised if Pink Zebra employees have fun interactions with them during the move itself. The employees have keywords where they’ll do a particular task or funny gestures, Ralph said.
“If (a customer) says ‘I’m so glad you’re here’ or ‘I’m happy for you to be here’, employees will surround them and start clapping,” he said.
Customers might also say certain phrases that could result in the team doing jumping jacks or something else energetic, Ralph said.
“We dance,” he said. “We sing. We have a boombox and a mascot.”
Pink Zebra’s mascot Zeke, will be making himself known throughout the community now that the location has opened, Holt said. Zeke could show up at community events like Easter egg hunts or a football game watch party.
“Zeke, the pink zebra, usually finds his way all over the place.” Holt said.
The Pink Zebra franchise began when Holt decided to sell his cleaning business, Two Maids and a Mop, for $40M in late 2021. Two Maids and a Mop had almost 100 locations when Holt sold it.
“I was trying to decide whether I wanted to continue to be the CEO of this huge brand,” Holt said. “Or do I want to return to my start-up roots.”
Around the same time Holt was considering a change, his mother-in-law in Birmingham had a negative experience with a moving company. He felt that it was likely that others had gone through something similar, so he began looking through Yelp in other cities to see if people in other markets also had bad reviews.
“There was just one negative experience after the other,” Holt said.
Everything seemed to align since he wanted to run a startup again, he said, and the moving industry seemed untapped.
“We just went all in on moving and trying to learn as much as we could about the industry,” Holt said. “We started experimenting with all sorts of really fun, customer experience ideas.”
The brand began in Alabama, he said, and they decided to start franchising last year after seeing strong success. Columbus will be home to Pink Zebra’s seventh location.
Rates for the company are comparable to competitors, Holt and Ralph said, but customers would need a quote to see what to expect for their move.
Ralph said it was important to him to open the Pink Zebra Moving company here in Columbus because of the presence of Fort Benning. The soldier can benefit from the company’s style of customer service, he said, because he knows what moving from duty station to duty station was like from his own background.
“You’re hoping that your introduction to that city would be a pleasant one,” Ralph said. “And it all starts with the company that moves you there.”
“It’s a chance to get some lunch after church and support a good cause,” says Frank Sheppard, President and CEO of Feeding the Valley Food Bank.COLUMBUS, Ga.

“It’s a chance to get some lunch after church and support a good cause,” says Frank Sheppard, President and CEO of Feeding the Valley Food Bank.
COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Sunday afternoon, hundreds of locals not only had the chance to support Columbus Parks and Recreation’s annual Empty Bowl Fundraiser benefitting Feeding the Valley Food Bank, but they also left the event with full stomachs.
“It was absolutely delicious I had the minestrone soup and the beef vegetable soup and all the desert I could fit on this plate,” says Columbus resident Sarah Basch. “I got this cute little lavender bowl.”
“Goodness gracious, we have so many of the bowls and sculptures that they make for this event that we have to build a new house,” says Columbus resident, Neil Block.
Basch and Block are just two of hundreds of people who left Psalmond Road Recreation Center in Columbus full of soup and with a new hand-crafted bowl Sunday.
It was for the 28th annual Empty Bowl fundraiser where hundreds of volunteers from Columbus Parks and Recreation provide 4 hours of endless soup.
“It’s an opportunity for folks to come in, they purchase a bowl, a nice hand crafted bowl and fill it with soup and deserts and other good items, says Frank Sheppard, President and CEO of Feeding the Valley Food Bank. “It’s a chance to get some lunch after church and support a good cause.”
The good cause is supporting Feeding the Valley’s Kids Cafe which provides more than half a million meals a year for children across Muscogee and Russell counties.
“In the Columbus area, there 35,000 chronically hungry kids day in and day out, and that number’s actually gone up during the pandemic, so we have a lot of work to do here,” says Sheppard. “There’s 115,000 chronically hungry people in our coverage area all together, so we’re thankful for events like this to help support our programs to help feed children.”
There were tons of bowls to chose from. They were painted and created all year through Columbus Parks and Recreation cultural art programs. Volunteer Makail Albritton was back for his fifth year as a volunteer for the fundraiser and sculptor of the bowls.
“It went to me going from I couldn’t do it all, I sucked at it to being really good at it; to then seeing not only my work is good but people want it and not only do people want it, I can help the community with it,” says Albritton.
One bowl priced at $15 is equivalent to 90 meals for a child. The bowl is more than a bowl, it’s a promise to strive to end hunger.
“To know that by doing this one event, which we work on all year, but the one day event goes to provide so many meals for children that otherwise might go hungry or might not have food is just a really great feeling to know we’re able to support the community in that way,” says Holli Browder, Director of Columbus Parks and Recreation.
This is the first Empty Bowl fundraiser since the beginning of the pandemic and volunteers, sponsors, community partners, and soup lovers were excited to be back.

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A man is behind bars after ‘fake scanning’ lottery tickets at a gas station in Columbus.
On February 24, the Talbot County Sheriff Office deputies responded to the 8100 block Manchester Highway in Woodland, Ga.
Deputies spoke with gas station owner, George Joseph. Joseph stated that his employee had been stealing from the store.
Officials say Joseph stated that he had marked money that was in the cash register - which he witnessed on camera the employee, Harish Bhatia, putting in his front pocket. Joseph also sent someone in with winning lottery tickets which Bhatia had paid out from cash register money but did not scan the tickets through the Georgia Lottery machine which would have counted the tickets.
Bhatia had also stuffed those winning tickets in his pants. At this point, Bhatia was arrested for theft by taking and theft by conversion - both felonies.
When searched by deputies, Bhatia was found in possession of $1,400 in marked $100 bills that Joseph had placed in the register along with $830 worth of winning lottery tickets that he had paid out but did not scan for cash out.
Investigators determined through video surveillance that Bhatia had done this 24 different times for the month of February. It was determined that Bhatia was fake scanning the lottery tickets by scanning the tickets by hitting ticket inquiry instead of the cash out button on the Georgia Lottery machine.
Then he’d take the winning tickets with him to an unknown store in Columbus and cash them in for personal gain. Investigators validated that Bhatia had stolen and ran this scam on Feb. 24 - for a total of $2,230 and for the entire month of February for $22,910.
Joseph stated that Bhatia has worked for him for five years at this location and believes that he has been running this scam the entire time for a total loss of $127,954 over this time.
Officials say Joseph says he became aware of this when a concerned person left an anonymous letter at Joseph’s store in Cataula stating that Bhatia was cashing in large amounts of winning lottery tickets into a certain store in Columbus.
Harish Bhatia is charged with 24 counts of theft by taking and 24 counts of theft by conversion - all felonies - with possibly more counts and charges coming.
Bhatia is currently being held at the Talbot County Jail.
