    The question whether we should go to be d with our socks on has been a topic of long and heated debates. In spite of counter arguments, it turns out that it is really beneficial for our health.

    Socks in bed

    The society seems to be divided; while some people find it as a quite pleasant habit, others simply speaking find it uncomfortable.

    The truth is that there are no negative consequences, at least for our health. It's quite the contrary in fact – there are some benefits.

    #1 Continuous sleep

    You don't wake up in the middle of the night. As a result, getting up in the morning is much easier as you won't feel this urge to have a lie-in.

    #2 Drop off like a baby

    Socks keep your feet warm so the blood vessels get bigger. As a result, you will fall asleep faster (on average 15 minutes faster than people sleeping barefoot) and your sleep will be longer and deeper. In this respect socks work almost like a hot relaxing bath.

    #3 Reducing stress

    When you put on soft socks, the warm feeling you experience makes you feel good and all the stress and worries fade away. Your brain receives a message that there is absolutely nothing to care about. And that is why you fall asleep faster.

    According to traditional Chinese medicine, cold feet can absorb the energy from the rest of the body and disturb the qi (life energy) and blood circulation in our bodies.

    #4 Better sexual experiences

    As socks improve blood circulation, they are likely to increase our willingness to make love. According to the findings of an experiment conducted at the Groningen University, 80% of people who made love wearing socks had an orgasm. The other group, including those who went to bed barefoot, reported only 50% orgasm rate. The only explanation that can account for the difference is blood circulation (essential for good sexual performance) improved thanks to socks.

    Exception makes the rule

    People with excessively sweaty feet should not wear socks in bed as this might intensify the symptom. And wet and humid environment is a perfect hotbed for microorganisms and fungus.
