How to improve your sleep routine

How to improve your sleep routine

We’ve all encountered the odd sleepless night… and sometimes they can be undetectable to us if the issue has become part of our natural sleep routine.

The most common sleep issues include getting to sleep and staying asleep, oversleeping and waking up more tired, parasomnias such as nightmares or night terrors, restless leg syndrome and snoring and sleep apnoea.

Our sleep expert, Dr Nerina, adds, “another sleep problem I have identified is what I call ‘who needs sleep?’ disorder”. The University of Oxford describes this as ‘sleep arrogance’, which is when someone constantly tries to keep with the demands of life by working against their body clock.

Dr Nerina also suggests that if you fall into this category of ‘sleep arrogance’ you need to try and relax your attitude towards sleep and relinquish control to enable yourself to fall asleep at a reasonable time to gain more energy for the next the day.

Sleep isn’t the only way we get energy, it can also come from the food we eat, exercising regularly, our relationships and the way we use our mind.

So if your mind is in overdrive during the night and you can’t sleep, here are some things to reassure you:

  • It’s completely normal to wake up in the night.
  • It’s possible to sleep with your eyes open when watching TV or reading a book
  • It’s normal to not sleep well sometimes

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
