Sleeping With Socks On Actually Does More Than Just Keeping Your Feet Warm

June 30, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who wear socks to bed and those who don’t. I never, ever wear socks to bed but after learning about its benefit, I might have to start. Wearing socks to bed does more than keeping your feet toasty. Sleeping in socks actually speeds up the rate at which you fall asleep. For real? Let me explain.

According to Sleep.org, which is powered by the National Sleep Foundation, “Heating cold feet causes vasodilation—dilation of the blood vessels—which may tell the brain that it is bedtime. After the blood vessels open in the hands and feet, heat is redistributed throughout the body to prepare for sleep.”

I would have never put those two thoughts together! The site also says, “research has shown that the more vasodilation in the hands and feet, the less time it takes to fall asleep.”

If you aren’t into wearing socks to bed, here are some things to try:

1. Layer a heavy blanket at the foot of your bed to create warmth.

2. Use a heating pad to heat up the foot of your bed right before bedtime.

3. Treat yourself to luxurious socks, like cashmere.

4. Wear warm and cozy slippers before bedtime to prep your tootsies for sleep.

I think I might try this tonight…
