The gift of sleep: A comfortable mattress

The gift of sleep: A comfortable mattress

It’s that time of the year again.  Family, presents and traditions.   As you rush around buying gifts for your friends and loved ones, don’t forget about yourself.  All throughout the year we often think about everyone but ourselves.  This holiday season, the best thing you can do is give yourself the gift of sleep with a comfortable mattress.

A new mattress may be just the thing you need to kickstart the new year. Since we spend half our lives sleeping, a good mattress is essential to getting a good night’s sleep.  When you don’t get good quality sleep you will feel tired all the time and you’ll be less productive, your health will be impacted negatively, you will have difficulty dealing with stress and you might gain weight.

Getting the right quality of sleep may be the ticket you need to have a more successful year in 2020.

The life of a mattress depends on how you sleep, the bed cover you use and how often it’s turned.  Take a look at the mattress you have, and ask yourself the following:

  • Are you still tired when you wake up?
  • Do you toss and and turn all night?
  • Is your mattress sagging?

If you feel it’s time for a new, comfortable mattress, here are the main types of mattress available.  Mattress technologies have changed over the last 10 years to help you get good quality sleep.

Finding a comfortable mattress: Discover the latest sleep tech

Innerspring mattress

This technology has been around the longest.  An innerspring mattress uses steel coils for support.  Sealy has advanced the technology of the innerspring to make it even more comfortable than what the old innerspring mattresses used to be.

The Sealy Collection has an advanced Double Offset spring with a Low Profile pocket system that offers pressure relief and reinforced support in the areas of the body that need it the most.  There is a firmness for every preference with comfort layers designed to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Innerspring memory foam hybrid mattress

An innerspring hybrid mattress as the name implies is a combination of memory foam and an innerspring system.

Sealy’s hybrid mattress is a combination of Coolsmart Gel Memory Foam or Dual Plex Hybrid Foam on the top layers for comfort and offset pocket springs for support and to minimising motion transfer.  Coolsmart Gel Memory Foam will keep your body cooler at night when you sleep, which helps you sleep more soundly.


The pillowtop mattress takes the innerspring mattress to a new level.  A pillowtop has an extra layer on top for comfort.  The mattress has a noticeable layer on the top that looks like there is a pillow sewn on top of it.

Sealy’s Crown Jewel collection and la différence collection have every detail you need to get a good night’s sleep.  When you lay on these luxurious mattresses, you can feel the comfort and craftsmanship that went into making them.

Other sleep accessories

If you don’t need a mattress or can’t afford to buy one, there are other accessories that can help you get a good night’s sleep.

  • Pillows

A pillow is important to get the right support for your head, neck, and shoulders.  You may need a new pillow if your current one:

  • Feels saggy or lumpy
  • Shows visible signs of dirt or smells like sweat
  • Doesn’t feel the same as when you bought it

Your pillow should be replaced every one to two years.  Sealy offers a variety of pillows to help you sleep comfortably.

  • Sheets

Soft breathable cotton sheets go a long way to making you comfortable and helping you sleep better.  A good quality sheet will not bunch up when you sleep and can keep your body temperature even.

Getting the right quality sleep is good for your health, productivity and success.  Make 2020 the best year yet and give yourself the gift of sleep.  Invest in a comfortable mattress – you deserve it!
