Wearing Socks to Bed Can Help You Fall Asleep Faster?


Do you wear socks to bed? You know, even when it's not negative 40 degrees?

According to a doctor slash TikTok star named Jess Andrade in Worcester, Massachusetts, there's a good reason to wear socks to bed: It'll help you fall asleep faster.

In a new video, she says, quote, "Wearing socks makes your feet warm, and this opens up the blood vessels that cools the body down. The body being cool tells the brain that it's time for bed. So actually, people that wear socks tend to fall asleep faster."
