Socks may solve a lot of your problems

Socks may solve a lot of your problems

Sleeping with your socks on may help you fall asleep faster and improve your love life.

Researchers say wearing socks to bed may help you regulate your core body temperature which is a necessary part of the sleep cycle. Studies have shown adults who wore either normal or heated socks in bed, fell asleep faster. That's because the person's core body temperature drops during the night, and warming the feet and hands makes the blood vessels dilate, releasing heat through the skin and keeping the body's core temperature steady.

A 2005 study also found couples who both wore socks to bed had better sex. Also, the regulating of core body temperature at night also may help women going through menopause regulate their body temperature and lessen the severity of hot flashes.
