If you don’t feel suffocated when sleeping with socks on, you might want to consider keeping them on come bedtime.According to a study done, there is a correlation between feet temperature and the amount of time it takes a person to fall asleep.
Blood vessels dilate when they become warm, which is called vasodilation. When the hands and feet warm during this process, the body’s internal temperature cools. This shortens the amount of time it takes for sleep to occur thus affecting the brain.
Additionally, blood pressure drops, which tells the brain to relax in preparation for sleep.
To prevent this, if your feet feel cold;
-Place a heating pad or hot bottle of water between your feet.
– Put extra blankets at the foot of your bed.
– Pre-warm your feet by wearing slippers.
– Take a hot shower or bath.
– Use an electric blanket.
