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.

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 , TN? 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 , TN. 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 Memphis TN. When you trust our mattress store in Memphis 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.

This week marks the official kickoff to the NFL regular season though, to pureblooded basketball fans, it just means they’re that much closer to the start of the 2023-24 NBA season. As of this writing, it has been nearly three months since meaningful NBA action has taken place, while Memphis Grizzlies fans are now inching toward five months of dormancy.
Luckily, Grind City’s faithful followers have already been gifted the knowledge of when they can expect to see their beloved franchise take to the hardwood once more, with an official season tip-off slated to take place on October 25 in a home game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Of course, before they get to their opener, the Grizzlies will need to partake in preseason shenanigans, including, but not limited to, training camp, preliminary play, etc.
For the Grizzlies, training camps are expected to open a bit later than some other clubs, as the official start technically is scheduled for September 27 for teams participating in a preseason game outside of the United States.
Memphis will be holding all of its contests in the homeland, thus making their start date October 3. However, veteran players will be allowed to report to their respective teams a day earlier on October 2.
As of this writing, no official date has been announced for Grizzlies Media Day. That said, one can likely infer that it will come right before the start of their October 3 training camp opening, for last season Media Day was held literally the day prior on September 27.
Thursday, October 5 is the official start to the 2023 NBA preseason. The Grizzlies will not be taking part in the festivities until October 8, when they’ll play host to the Indiana Pacers.
A full breakdown of their preseason schedule reads as follows:
Memphis may seemingly have the majority of their rotational foundation set in stone, but considering they currently have 17 people attached to contracts heading into the 2023-24 season the club’s decision-makers will need to make some proper adjustments to cut this number down to the required max of 15.
The deadline for them to do so is currently set for Monday, October 23 at 5 p.m. ET.

As Labor Day signified the unofficial end to summer, it’s now time to start getting excited for holiday festivities. The newly appointed trustee of Lisa Marie Presley’s estate, Riley Keough, has announced her plans to produce an NBC special Christmas at Graceland. The special will arrive on November 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, per Billboard.
According to the outlet, the special will feature a host of “music’s biggest stars” coming together to herald Elvis Presley’s legacy and, of course, his Christmas classics.
“My family and I are elated to open the doors to Graceland in this first-of-its-kind special,” Keough told Billboard. “With intimate musical performances drawing inspiration from my grandfather Elvis’s cherished Christmases in Memphis, viewers will be invited to experience firsthand the magic that is Christmas at Graceland.”
“To celebrate the holidays at Graceland, and be a part of the King’s legacy, is both an honor and absolute dream come true,” Jen Neal, executive vice president of live events and specials at NBCUniversal Media Group, added. “We thank Riley and her family for allowing all of us to visit her grandfather’s iconic home and share an intimate musical experience that Elvis would’ve truly loved.”
The official lineup of Christmas at Graceland will be announced at a later date. The organizers also didn’t confirm which Elvis songs the artists would be taking on, but The King has a number of Christmas classics that could make the cut–namely “Blue Christmas,” and “Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane).”
Keough acquired Lisa Marie’s estate following her mother’s death in January. The decision was made after a back-and-forth with her grandmother, Priscilla Presley. While Keough became the solitary trustee, Priscilla received a settlement to withdraw all petitions regarding her late daughter’s will.
Keough’s trustee status comes as she has garnered runaway success with her limited series Daisy Jones & The Six. Revisit our conversation with Keough about the series, HERE.

Some 55 years after Elvis rocked NBC with the now legendary "'68 Comeback Special," the network is back in the Presley business with "Christmas at Graceland," an hourlong live special from Elvis' Memphis mansion that will air at 9 p.m. Nov. 29.
The special, which will be simulcast on NBC and the Peacock streaming service, will showcase "music's biggest stars," according to a Thursday press release from NBCUniversal. Who the stars might be remains a mystery, but the roster could be impressive because the special's executive producer is Graceland heir and Elvis' granddaughter Riley Keough, who is much respected in the entertainment industry.
The daughter of the late Lisa Marie Presley, Keough, 34, is an actor and director. She received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress for her role in the streaming series "Daisy Jones & the Six," and she has acted in acclaimed and provocative films under the direction of such international auteurs as Australia's George Miller, England's Andrea Arnold and Denmark's Lars von Trier.
According to the press release, "'Christmas at Graceland' is the first live musical televised holiday special of its kind at the estate."
CONVERSATIONS ON ELVIS:Lee Majors, Linda Thompson, more share memories of the King
The special, the press release continues, "will feature music’s biggest stars celebrating the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, his music and his favorite time of year, in an unprecedented holiday special live from his iconic home, Graceland. Participating performers will be announced at a later date."
“My family and I are elated to open the doors to Graceland in this first-of-its-kind special,” said Keough, in a statement that marked one of her first "official" proclamations since she became sole trustee of her mother's estate, which includes the Graceland mansion. “With intimate musical performances drawing inspiration from my grandfather Elvis’s cherished Christmases in Memphis, viewers will be invited to experience firsthand the magic that is Christmas at Graceland.”
Added Jen Neal, Executive Vice President, Live Events and Specials, NBCUniversal Media Group, in another statement: “We thank Riley and her family for allowing all of us to visit her grandfather’s iconic home and share an intimate musical experience that Elvis would’ve truly loved.”
“Christmas at Graceland” will air after NBC’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center," an annual presentation.
The new Graceland special is likely to contain references to Elvis' previous NBC holiday-season show, "Singer Presents... Elvis," which has become known as the "'68 Comeback Special" in the decades since its broadcast debut on Dec. 3, 1968.
A ratings blockbuster that has been credited with inspiring Elvis to recommit to live performance and quality studio recordings after years of cookie-cutter Hollywood work, the Christmas themes of the "'68 Comeback Special" were explored to tragic/comic effect in Baz Luhrmann's recent biopic, "Elvis." The special also inspired a new documentary about its origins, production and impact, "Reinventing Elvis: The '68 Comeback," now available on the Paramount+ streaming service.
The new NBC special also may revive memories of other recent attempts to link Elvis and Graceland onscreen, namely, "Christmas at Graceland" (2018), and its sequel, "Christmas at Graceland: Home for the Holidays" (2019), each one produced in Memphis by the Hallmark Channel.
