It is no secret that sleep is important for our overall well-being like our physical health and brain function.
But according to a national sleep survey conducted by Nielsen Malaysia 2018, nine out of 10 Malaysians suffer from one or more sleep problems, with most of us getting only 6.3 hours of sleep a day when the recommended duration is 7-9 hours.
While there are a slew of tips and tricks that could assist with getting better sleep, identifying your sleep position could come in handy.
There are three main sleeping positions: you either sleep on your side, back or stomach.
According to a Washington Post article, sleeping on your back may help with spine alignment. While suitable for most healthy people, the supine position is not for everyone, especially those who have obstructive sleep apnea or snoring.
However, it is important to get a quality mattress and appropriate pillow as many people who sleep on their backs may develop neck pain because they use a pillow that is too thick.
Those who sleep on their side can make snoozing more comfortable by taking the strain off their backs.
According to the Mayo Clinic in the United States, you could draw your legs up slightly toward your chest and put a pillow between your legs. You could also use a full-length body pillow.
While comfortable, sleeping on your stomach can be hard on your back.
If you have tried to change your sleeping position and keep falling back on your tummy, the Mayo Clinic suggests placing a pillow under your pelvis and lower abdomen to reduce the strain on your back.
It also said if sleeping with a pillow causes strain in your back, try sleeping without a pillow under your head.
Boost sleep with Sealy Posturepedic mattresses
Aside from our ideal sleep positions, arming ourselves with the right tool such as a good mattress could prove beneficial. After all, we spend about a third of our lives in bed.
In 1881 in a small Texas town called Sealy, Daniel Haynes built the first Sealy mattress and that helped change the way the world sleeps.
Over a century on, Sealy Posturepedic continues to uphold its promise to ensure that its consumers will always enjoy first-class sleep.
Sealy’s continued efforts to better understand the nature of sleep have helped propel the brand to become the world’s most trusted brand.
It said its research philosophy with advice from the Orthopedic Advisory Board finds the best support a mattress can provide is to replicate the supine position while in bed.
With a Sealy Posturepedic mattress that is designed for a better night’s sleep, you would be privy to its patented coil made of titanium for superior support and extra durability. These coils have evolved even more and its mattresses rely on two of the best coils for your sleep which are the SRxII and ReSTII.
Moreover, it boasts a slew of other benefits that could help with your sleep:
Sense and respond: Each coil has a “sense and respond” support system to achieve correct back support. It features the sensory arm which senses the body’s weight and motion and then responds with the correct amount of support for proper spinal alignment.
Comfort Core: To provide a better level of support to the lower back, the center third of the mattress is enhanced with the ComfortCore, which is a layer of gel-infused memory foam.
SmartTex: Aside from its advanced technology with coils, Sealy has also upped the ante with its fabric technology integrated into the mattress. It actively disperses heat and maintains hygiene to let you sleep peacefully.
Ice Touch: Because the sheets you sleep on play an important role in sleep comfort and hygiene, Sealy has introduced another advanced fabric technology that provides good health and hygiene to make your sleep cooler.
Unicased XT: Not one cm has been overlooked to provide you with the best sleep. Located at the edge of the mattress, it provides a stable sleep surface and helps to reduce motion transfer for a blissful night’s sleep
That’s not all – the brand boasts a 10-year guarantee. When you purchase a Sealy Posturepedic, each component is of the highest quality so you can enjoy your mattress for many years to come.
