Why sleep is important for Heart Evangelista

Heart Evangelista gives great value to sleep and rest as among the most essential things in life. For her, quality sleep can be rewarding enough to foster success, great health and happiness.

Sleeping for the prescribed amount of time is necessary, but having good sleep products like mattresses and pillows can make a huge difference in energizing you for the next day.


“I am a fan of anything that gives you comfort and promotes good health. They’re important to make one’s life more productive,” shared Heart.

According to Milieu Insight and Intellect’s research on sleeping, many Filipino adults who are currently employed admitted to experiencing poor quality of life due to a variety of stressors. But quality sleep can help prevent a string of serious health problems. INQ
