The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) conducted the 2013 Sleep in America Poll showing that 1 in 4 people report their overall sleep quality as “bad.” On average, people say they need 7 hours and 17 minutes to function at their best throughout the day. The quality of our sleep is affected by our physical activity levels, as well as five other common sleep issues, including tossing and turning, lack of support that leads to back pain, sleeping too hot or too cold, partner disturbance and mattress roll-off or sag. The new Serta Perfect Sleeper is engineered with input from the NSF to help solve common causes of poor sleep, as it’s designed with a unique set of features to help address not one, but all five common sleep and mattress issues.
