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 Roanoke, VA.

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 , VA? 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 , VA. 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 Roanoke VA. When you trust our mattress store in Roanoke 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 Roanoke. One look at our prices, and you'll understand why we're South Carolina's go-to choice for premium mattresses like MLILY.

ROANOKE, Va. – Maggie Perrin-Key and Alex Eliades first met at Golden Cactus Brewing in downtown Roanoke and started dating shortly thereafter.
It was only fitting that their business - Hot Knots - debuted there the first weekend of March.
They both recall, “Alex made pretzels for Bread Craft every October. Last year, he did pretzel sandwiches too. And I said ‘These are really good. You need to make these available all the time. It was about two weeks later, I said, ‘Babe, why don’t we start a pretzel business? Would you like to start a pretzel business?’”
Just like their relationship together, they haven’t looked back on their business since. The two sold out quickly during the big debut at Golden Cactus, and it only took an hour and a half.
The combination of beer and pretzels is a match made in heaven - something they’ve learned from having traveled abroad. The two of them together - a baker and artist - make a great team too.
Perrin-Key says, “I care a lot about how it looks. He cares a lot about how it tastes.”
After going through the proofing process, the couple dips and salts the pretzels before throwing them in the big oven. They come out with a beautiful, golden color, as if painted onto each pretzel. When pulled apart, the soft and delicate dough is revealed.
The design of each pretzel is different, depending on whether it’s being sold individually or as a sandwich.
“We’ve got a chive butter, a mustard butter and then obatzda which is a German cheese spread. The sandwiches are going to be ham and pickle with gruyere and mustard butter. Gravlax sandwich with chive butter and capers and then a turkey with obatzda and winter radishes.”
Now that the first event is out of the way, you can look for future pop-ups by following along on Hot Knots Instagram.

Virginia- $3.14 per gallon, up 1.4 cents per gallon from last week’s $3.12 per gallon.
“The national average rose last week as the transition to summer gasoline has now started across the entire country. The higher cost of these various blends is being passed along to motorists, as we see every year ahead of the summer driving season,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Some regions are moving to the required summer gasoline in different steps then others, and the fragmentation of required blends absolutely plays a role in these price increases. Logistical challenges in making the transition during a time when refiners are also doing maintenance work can create hotspots and lead to noticeable jumps in prices during the spring. While we may not see weekly increases, the overall trend will remain upward through much of the spring. By Memorial Day, most of the nation will be transitioned to their respective required blend of fuel, and gas prices could ease, but a $4 per gallon national average remains possible by then.”

Sleep in a bank, have a sip in its vault, and check out great local fare and vibrant culture in downtown Roanoke
When The Liberty Trust bank building opened its doors in 1910, it was a celebrated example of architecture and design.
Over the course of a century, the seven-story historic landmark was home to a number of commercial and financial institutions before making its debut as a luxury boutique hotel last year.
Inside and out, the recent renovation took full advantage of the building’s period details, preserving the Roman Ionic columns in the entrance, bronze main doors, granite exterior with carved rosettes and the balustrade roof.
Today, the property is regarded by historians to be one of the best examples of Edwardian-era architecture in Virginia.
The Vault, the hotel’s centerpiece restaurant, is in the grand lobby hall, framed by commanding Doric marble columns. It is a go-to for delicious bites, craft cocktails, and networking. Executive Chef Andy Schlosser oversees the menu, which features a mix of elevated small plates.
A few standouts include: Seared sea scallops with black truffle and apple brandy cream gratin; Hamachi Crudo; a 16-hour Tellicherry black peppercorn brisket; and melt-in-your-mouth Georgian cheese bread.
The old steel bank vault at the back of the main hall has been turned into a wine-tasting room. Enjoy a sip, along with a special experience.
Accommodations are spacious and include all the modern amenities you would expect from a luxury boutique hotel.
Many of the 54 guestrooms and suites feature original copper doors complete with brass mail slots. Inside, the décor is pared down and handsome with reserved hues, dapper textiles, metal, leather and dark wood accents, and retro accessories, such as vintage clocks and a black rotary telephone.
Well-behaved dogs are always welcome. You can book a special travel package that includes gourmet treats, a mat, food and water bowls, and local pet-friendly resources.
The Liberty Trust’s location is within walking distance of downtown shopping, galleries, the Historic Roanoke City Market, and breweries like Three Notch’d Brewery.
There’s also a number of other great restaurants, like Frankie Rowland’s Steakhouse. Just a short drive from downtown, try Local Roots for incredible farm-to-table dining, and then to award-winning Brady’s Distillery for a tasting experience of locally crafted spirits, including a new release of a prohibition-style sipping gin.
A stop at Black Dog Salvage offers 44,000 square feet of warehouse and showroom packed with unique architectural finds, antique lumber and upcycled pieces.
