Why Wearing Socks to Bed Might Help You Fall Asleep

If you like wearing socks to bed, then know that it’s perfectly OK to go ahead and wear them because they just might help you sleep better, according to a new report from Today and the National Sleep Foundation.

As it turns out, when your feet are a little warmer, they're actually telling your brain it’s time for sleep — so if you have trouble falling asleep, go ahead, put those socks on and settle in. At the same time, though, you may want to consider taking off the rest of your clothes and sleeping naked.

Evidence suggests sleeping naked can have a number of benefits, including better sleep. Many of these benefits are related to lower body temperature, which can have a significant impact on your sleep quality. Besides improving your sleep quality, sleeping in the nude can help boost metabolism, improve blood circulation, sperm quality, skin and genital health, balance hormones and improve your sex life.

Overall, quality sleep is important for brain detoxification and cognitive health. Tips to improve your sleep include maintaining a regular morning/evening routine, avoiding stimulants, removing electronics from your bedroom and more.

Surprisingly, a short nap during the day can also help you sleep at night. The truth is we're biologically programmed to nap during the daytime, typically in the middle of the afternoon. The key is to avoid napping for too long, as this may disrupt your circadian rhythms, which would hurt your sleep instead of help it. The ideal nap time for adults appears to be around 20 minutes.
