Get More Socks In The Sack

The experts say the big reason we have trouble sleeping these days is because we take our smartphones  or tablets to bed and they distract us.  Well, I don’t care. I’m not willing to give that up.

So here’s another, more REASONABLE trick to use to fall asleep.

Researchers in Switzerland found you can fall asleep quicker if you wear socks to bed.

When you’re about to fall asleep, your body redirects more blood to your hands and feet.  Once they’re warm, your blood starts circulating around the rest of your body, which makes you go to sleep.

So if you’re wearing socks, your feet warm up faster . . . which means the blood can circulate around your body sooner.
