The Cold Will Never Bother You Anymore

The months of December up to February are usually cold months in the Philippines and this is the perfect time to put on additional layers of clothing to keep us warm and cozy. It’s time to take out those warm and fuzzy sweaters and socks! One way to combat the cold and don’t let it bother you is by putting socks on when sleeping. But do you know that aside from giving warmth, there are also health benefits of wearing socks at night? Here’s why you should start wearing socks at bedtime:

     1. Wearing socks at night promotes sleep

Having a hard time falling asleep? Consider wearing socks. Sleeping with socks on warms your feet, and warming the feet signals the brain that it’s time to sleep. It also assists the body’s internal temperature regulation — and wearing socks is the easiest way to warm the feet.

     2. Wearing socks at night promotes blood circulation

Wearing socks (that are not too constricting) at night helps in keeping one’s blood vessels open, making it dilated. In turn, dilated blood vessels make it easier for blood circulation. Consequently, good circulation helps the body maintain a consistent temperature while sleeping. Maintaining your body temperature during sleep also ensures a good night’s rest.

     3. Wearing socks at night smoothens cracked heels

Say goodbye to dry heels and feet and wake up with softer feet. Applying moisturizing lotion before bedtime and slipping on a pair of socks does the trick! Putting on socks helps keep the lotion from drying out and seals in the moisture.

Don’t let the cold bother you and slip on your favorite socks tonight for a good night’s sleep.
