It’s true: Your cold feet could actually be keeping you from getting a full night’s sleep. What if you could banish your sleepless nights with a simple pair of socks?
When you warm up cold feet (or hands), it starts a process called vasodilation, or the dilation of the blood vessels. When your blood vessels open, it sends a message throughout your body, in the form of heat, that it’s time for sleep. This can help you drift off more quickly.
Give it a go tonight. But if the thought of wearing socks while you sleep is slightly disturbing—and it can be for some people—there are other ways to warm those tootsies. Try adding extra blankets at the end of your bed, place a warm water bottle near your feet at bedtime, or wear warm slippers before bed. No matter what you do, the same principle still applies: Heat up your feet, and you may find yourself falling asleep faster.
