How to make Blue Monday a little less blue

So-called Blue Monday is apparently the most depressing day of the year. Well, we’re here to help you make sure that’s not the case. While January might be a lot quieter than usual for most of us this year, it’s important to sleep well, stay active and keep your energy levels up.

Make some resolutions

Resolutions aren’t just for New Year. It’s never too late to set yourself some goals, so why not beat Blue Monday by planning out some optimistic challenges for the year ahead. Think about how you’ve been sleeping for the last couple of weeks or so. Could your sleep quality improve? If your goal is to sleep better, we’ve got solutions for every sleeper out there to help you rest well each and every night. Whether you need a new mattress, some fluffy new pillows, or a full bedroom re-fresh, we’ve got you covered.

Get outdoors

Dr Nerina, our sleep expert, is a big advocate of spending time outdoors. ‘Make the most of the winter sun and increase your Vitamin D levels by getting out for a walk or a run. Fresh air is a quick energiser, so even something as simple as getting outside and breathing deeply for a few minutes will make a difference to your day.’

Do something different

If your daily routine is causing fatigue or getting you down, change it up. Why not start a new project? January is the perfect time to make some home improvements for the year ahead. Turn your bedroom into the ultimate sleep sanctuary with a lick of paint or some new accessories. We’ve rounded up this year’s biggest bedroom trends here. Get inspired, create your own vision and keep yourself busy this January!

60 night comfort exchange

Our comfort exchange gives you 60 nights to get really comfortable before making a decision. If you're still not loving your new mattress within 60 nights from delivery, you can exchange it for another mattress. It's as simple as that.

Here's how it works:

  1. Pick your new mattress on the official Silentnight website
  2. Sleep on it for at least 28 nights as it can take a little time to adjust to a new mattress
  3. If you're not happy after the initial 28 nights you can exchange it for a new mattress, as long as you claim within 60 nights of delivery
