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 , AL? 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 , AL. 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 Tuscaloosa AL. When you trust our mattress store in Tuscaloosa 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.

Tuscaloosa’s restaurant scene doesn’t get enough love, but one list recently did its part to shine a light on 15 of the city’s best.
Eater.com shared “The 15 Best Restaurants in Tuscaloosa, Home to the University of Alabama” in August, highlighting a blend of traditional hits, new spots and a few unexpected choices you’ll have to try if you haven’t.
“Meat-and-three combos surrounded by Bama paraphernalia, a decades-old barbecue icon for ribs and pulled pork, a neon-lit vegan cafe serving smoothies and bowls, and more of Title Town’s best meals,” writer Jen Bowman says in her description of the piece.
Before sharing the picks, the Pennsylvania-born and Nashville-based blogger says “A diverse culinary scene is growing alongside the town itself, powered by Southern hospitality and the mutual support of a unique arts and entertainment scene.
It also has a few relatively new spots like Dillard’s Chophouse, Fuku Ramen, The Veganish Market and Forte Cuts and Cocktails (inside The Alamite hotel, co-owned by Nick Saban).
Other picks include Heritage House, The Houndstooth (noting the popular bar’s takeout operation) and Innisfree Pub. It also has Alabama fan favorite, Rama Jama’s, which is located right across the street from Bryant-Denny Stadium and is often a go-to for out-of-towners soaking up everything Crimson Tide football.
Bowman’s picks are as good as anyone’s. It’s her opinion, and she makes some great cases. About The Waysider: “Although the interior draws customers in, they stick around for Waysider’s signature soft, buttery biscuits and the meat-and-three combos. The Waysider is a must-try for anyone who calls themself a Crimson Tide fan.”
So what do you think? What would you include on your list of the Druid City’s best restaurant?

Tuscaloosa, Ala. (WBRC) - Scorching hot weather is affecting almost everything this week, including high school football.
While the games will be played as planned, kickoff times are being pushed back in many school districts like Tuscaloosa City Schools. One could call it a weather delay, even though there is no rain in the forecast.
School administrators wanted to protect players, fans, and others from triple digit temperatures being experienced across Alabama.
All three Tuscaloosa City high schools, Central, Northridge, and Bryant, open the 2023 football season at home on Friday. However, they will all kick off at 8 p.m. instead of the usual 7.
Maurice Heard, the Coordinator of Extracurricular Activities and Safety for Tuscaloosa City Schools, said they followed the recommendations of the Alabama High School Athletic Association.
He said it gave them a chart that listed heat indexes and offered guidance of when not to have students participating in outside activities.
“Even though it’s going to be hot at 8 o’clock, it gives us our best chance for the heat to diminish. We just want to make sure our student athletes, our officials, our coaches, and everybody who’s attending the game is as comfortable as possible,” said Heard. “It’s going to be hot, but we still wanted to do the best that we can to keep everybody safe.”
Water misters will be on the sideline to cool off players, game officials can call heat timeouts for the teams, and concession stands will be stocked with water for football fans.

TUSCALOOSA, AL — The Tuscaloosa City Board of Education has approved work on a new "literacy bus," which will transform one of its school system's existing school buses into new mobile library.
TCS said in a press release on Thursday that the literacy bus will feature a wide selection of children's books, comfortable areas for sitting, free wifi, and tablets that children can use to read electronic books or play learning games.
"We are really excited about this bus, to provide resources for families in the community as well as every school in the Tuscaloosa City Schools," said Terri North-Byrts, director of student literacy for Tuscaloosa City Schools. "It's very important that all children are reading, and for them to see reading or literacy as a task, but a skill and that they love to read, because we know that reading takes our children further."
The school system also said any child can board the bus, and parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the bus with their child and read with them.
"This is about community outreach," TCS Superintendent Mike Daria said. "It's not just about our TCS students, but it's the Tuscaloosa community at large."
Additionally, children who are students in Tuscaloosa City Schools will also be able to receive a free book from the literacy bus to take home with them and keep. This will be paid for by a community literacy grant that TCS received.
TCS says the bus will visit community events and have scheduled stops across Tuscaloosa, while also being available for use by organizations such as the United Way of West Alabama
School officials said on Thursday that the bus is scheduled to be finished and operational by the end of this school year.
A schedule of locations will be posted on the Tuscaloosa City Schools website once the bus is ready to enter service.

In just his second season at Alabama, Tyler...
In just his second season at Alabama, Tyler Booker is a staple on the offensive line. He is projected to be a starter at left guard, with Nick Saban having him switch sides in order to help out a new left tackle. The journey to being a blindside protector of whoever wins the Crimson Tide quarterback battle has been one enjoyed by Booker.
The northeast is not talent-rich in football prospects like other portions of the country. Rarely do New England states produce NFL talent at high volumes but Booker is going to be one of those. He did, however, play a majority of his high school football down in the South at arguably the most famous program at the HS level.
“My journey is very different and I am appreciative of how it went,” Booker said during Thursday’s episode of The Paul Finebaum Show. “I grew up in New Haven, Connecticut — born and raised. I played football in New Haven, Connecticut… But before I made it to Tuscaloosa, I was at IMG Academy for a while.”
A ton of good players come through IMG Academy and wind up being recruited by SEC programs. Booker is a little different though, being a five-star prospect. He was the No. 30 overall recruit in the 2022 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Rankings, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.
Ten SEC schools offered Booker a scholarship. When it came time to make a commitment, Georgia and Ohio State were the other two finalists. Booker may have played it cool when speaking on the record but deep down, he always knew Alabama was going to be the pick.
“As soon as I stepped foot on campus for the first time in Tuscaloosa, I always knew I wanted to call Alabama home. I just had to keep the people who do the crystal balls guessing. But I always knew that Tuscaloosa was home for me.”
Part of the reason Booker knew he loved Alabama was due to visits taken before becoming one of the most heralded recruits in the country. A family connection sent him to Tuscaloosa on three different occasions, going through a camp run by Saban.
“My uncle, he actually played for Coach Saban when he was at Michigan State sometime around the 2000s. So, football has been in my blood and I’ve always loved it. Even growing up, I came to the Nick Saban football camps. Went about three years in a row.”
From the time he was 11 years old, Booker knew he wanted to play at Alabama. Nearly a decade later, he is living it all out and is on his way to being a star. Booker was named a preseason All-SEC second-team member by the media.
While he might come from New Haven, CT, Booker feels right at home in Tuscaloosa, AL.
Due to the excessive heat warning in Alabama, several Tuscaloosa area high schools have pushed back their kickoff times for their home opener ...
Games originally were slated to kickoff at 7 p.m., but now some schools have pushed that time back to 7:30 p.m., while majority have pushed it back to 8 p.m.
The Tuscaloosa area is currently under an excessive heat warning, which in effect until 9 p.m. Friday. With the excessive heat warning, the heat index has reached values as high as 111°F in recent days.
"(Pushing the kickoff times back) was recommended by the state and the city of Tuscaloosa," Northridge coach Ryan Lolley said. "They went ahead and decided it was best for the safety of the student athletes and the fans."
At 7 p.m. Friday, the National Weather Service forecasts temperatures to be 91°F, while at 8 p.m., it forecasts temperatures to drop to 87°F.
