You can’t avoid stress at work, it’s inevitable. There are times when you will find yourself going through tight deadlines, demanding workloads, and high levels of responsibility, among other stressors. These can collectively lead to irregular sleep schedules and poor sleep hygiene, resulting in a decrease in your overall health and well-being.

Sealy’s 2024 Global Sleep Census [1] revealed that two in five people sleep less than seven hours per night, with hours declining with age. People with high-intensity careers such as overnight and evening shifters are also the ones more likely to sleep less. 


Stressful careers aside, getting a good amount of sleep is definitely a difficult feat for many. But it is still a necessity for anyone in order to lessen burnouts, and improve brain performance, mood, and health. It could also decrease the risk of many diseases and disorders, from heart disease and stroke to obesity and dementia.


While there are a few tips and tricks that might help you sleep better like sticking to a consistent sleep schedule or reducing your caffeine intake, sometimes the easiest way to improve your quality of sleep is to invest in a top tier mattress.

For the ultimate sleep experience, here are several factors that you’d need to take note of before you choose the perfect one:


Comfort Levels: Comfort is different for every individual, so you will need to choose the right mattress catering to your preferences. For example, a plush surface is recommended for side sleepers who put more pressure on their shoulders and hips when they sleep on their sides. Whereas a firmer surface is perfect for those who are looking to reduce lower back pain.

The Sleep Census reported that Sealy customers have less trouble getting to sleep, as only 17% of Sealy customers claim they have trouble getting to sleep—significantly fewer than non-Sealy customers (21%). And with Sealy’s ComfortCore® Premium layers, its additional density and durability provides extra comfort in the important lumbar region of the lower back, designed to disperse pressure where it is needed most.

Support System: According to the Global Sleep Census, side sleeping is favored by half of all individuals. However, sleeping positions are also influenced by comfort, so it’s important to find a bed that could help alleviate pressure points and promote proper spinal alignment.

A supportive mattress with a dependable coil system is all the more crucial, particularly for individuals with high-intensity careers as stress could be the cause of back or neck pain. Sealy’s patented Align Support® coil system is able to give you deep down support that is able to evenly distribute your body’s weight.

Temperature-Regulation: In Malaysia, our climate is unavoidably hot and humid all year round, but you might not know that high-end mattress brands like Sealy offer innovative temperature-regulating technologies to keep you cool.

40% report that sleeping with a cooler temperature would help them sleep better. With cooling and comfortable fabrics, Sealy mattresses with SmarTex® & Ice-Touch™ fabrics help regulate sleep surface temperature throughout the night, giving you a comfortable sleeping environment. 

Sizes: You have to think about who the bed will be fitting as well as how much space the room has for it. A queen-sized mattress would be able to fit a young adult perfectly, or even have ample space for a couple. However, a king would give a couple a lot more space—if the room permits.

Guarantee: Each time you purchase a mattress for your home, that mattress will be a huge part of your life for a long period of time. It’s why we suggest investing in a high quality mattress that guarantees quality and durability.

Sealy mattresses have the Sealy’s 10-Year Guarantee, which means that you will be able to enjoy your mattress for at least ten years if cared for properly. Their guarantee covers coils or wires in the mattress that are loose, broken, protruding or torn. It also covers the foundation if wood splits in the frame, modules compress, legs and castors fail, or foundation wires break through any fabric.


In the fast-paced world of high-intensity careers, quality sleep is a necessity to recharge and face each day with renewed energy and focus. Sealy Posturepedic Elevate mattress is specifically built to meet orthopaedically-specific criteria to ensure you wake up feeling refreshed, reenergised and ready to take on the world.
