Simple Tricks To Help Improve Sleep

Psychologist Richard Wiseman of Quirkology suggests how to improve your sleep with such simple tricks as staying away from blue screens (computers, phones) one hour before bed, drinking a cup of coffee before you nap, sleeping on your right side and wearing socks to bed.

When you start to fall asleep, the blood flow to your feet increases, having warm feet speeds up the process to help you nod off. So the next time you’re struggling to fall asleep, try putting on a pair of socks.

So maybe it’s not so bad when they wear socks to bed after all.
