Sealy in conjunction with the CQUniversity Sleep Centre have conducted Australia's largest and most comprehensive sleep study ever, exploring the sleep habits of the nation and painting a detailed picture of exactly how well Australians are sleeping.
Over 13,000 Australians responded, revealing a sleep-deprived nation with the vast majority of people (96%) waking up tired from their sleep with just 4% saying they feel refreshed.
Some other surprising findings:
- People who exercised reported falling asleep faster than people who don't exercise.
- Overall, people who owned a Sealy Posturepedic mattress reported a greater level of satisfaction with the mattress than those who owned any other brand
- 8.9% reported that their pets sleep on the bed with them, nearly double the amount that reported their children sleeping in bed with them (4.8%)
- The most popular activities in bed (aside from sleep and intimacy) are using the computer (78%), reading (60%), watching TV (36%) and organising or folding clothing (32%).
