Why You Should Wear Socks In Bed

When you heat your feet in the evening, the blood vessels are spreading and a signal is sent to the brain that it is time to sleep. Moreover, the blood vessels in the feet and hands open, and the heat spreads through the whole body and the body prepares for sleep. That’s why some people advise putting bottles filled with warm water at your feet if you can’t sleep. This process provides a more peaceful sleep, mostly without interruption.

Not only that, in a study published in the International Journal of Weekly Science, it was discovered that, when you wear socks in the evening, you will fall asleep faster – 15 minutes faster than you normally need.

Even alternative medicine agrees with these conclusions. According to traditional Chinese medicine, cold feet pull heat from the body and interrupt the flow of vital energy.
