Wearing custom socks to bed is good for you
We know how much you love your super cool socks with pictures of your dog on them! So much so that you never want to take them off, not even when sleeping! Well, guess what? Sleeping with your favorite personalized pet socks is actually good for your health!
Let’s find out why, shall we?
You fall asleep faster
Have you noticed that when your feet are cold, you simply just can’t fall asleep, no matter how tired you are?
When you go to bed with your custom photo socks, this simple fact helps you fall asleep faster and easier. Why? Because wearing socks to bed helps regulate your body’s internal temperature.
Our core body temperature increases slightly during the day, making us more alert and lowers during the night, making us sleepy. When we wear socks to bed, we warm up and that leads our blood vessels to dilate, making us release heat through the skin and helping in lowering our core body temperature. This is the moment when our body tells our brain it’s bedtime and we easily fall asleep.
Helping with Raynaud’s symptoms
Raynaud’s is a condition in which the blood vessels in the skin are affected, causing hands and feet to be cold most of the time. Blood flow to the extremities is reduced and as a result, the fingers and toes start to feel cold and numb.
If you experience this frequently, you must make an appointment with a doctor, for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Furthermore, wearing a pair of warm, cozy customizable socks with pictures to bed could help reduce the symptoms, but also keep you warm during the day.
Hot flushes prevention
During menopause, many women experience hot flushes. A hot flushes episode can include palpitations, sweating, a sudden warmth throughout the whole body and flushing of the face.
By wearing socks to bed, you can prevent these episodes, because socks lower the body temperature during the night. So, a simple act like sleeping with your custom image socks on, can do wonders for your body!
These are just a few of the benefits of sleeping with socks. Choose your cutest pair of puppy face socks or maybe even some personalized Christmas socks (since the holidays are fast approaching) and get ready for a good night’s sleep!
Alternately, if you’re not a big fan of wearing socks to bed, here are some other ways to keep yourself warm:
- take a warm bath before going to bed
- sleep with a hot water bottle that you keep near your feet
- take an extra blanket to cover yourself with
Whatever you choose, we hope you’ll feel warm and cozy tonight! Sweet dreams!
