Wear Socks to Fall Asleep Easily

According to Realsimple via Lifehacker - http://lifehacker.com/wear-socks-to-fall-asleep-easily-476550620

If you're having trouble getting to sleep, the problem might not be in your head. In fact, it might be in your feet.

Swiss researchers found that when we are on the cusp of falling asleep, our body redirects blood flow to our hands and feet. When these extremities are warm, their blood vessels can dilate and allow for greater blood flow, which of course aids in the redistribution of blood and helps you get to sleep. So if you're having trouble nodding off, the solution could be as simple as throwing on a warm pair of socks. If, like me, you have an aversion to wearing socks to sleep, a hot water bottle at the foot of the bed can serve just as well.

Ideas are funny little things, they won't work unless you do.

That's interesting. I recently -- for no particular reason at all -- began wearing socks to bed. I always wear knee-high socks though, and the elastic at the top bug me at night, so I need to buy a few short pair to wear to bed.

Thanks, E!

I've had a heck of a time sleeping since I took the mattress warmer off our bed a couple of weeks ago. Most of the heat is directed toward the lower third of the bed, so in the winter my feet stay warm while the rest of me is comfortable.

I'm going to try the socks, too.
