• For Sleeping
A person must need at least 6-10 hours depending on your body’s unique needs. Some people have trouble sleeping. This may be due to stress and other health factor but if you wear socks at night, you’ll find that it will be easier to sleep. There has been a study in 2007 stating that adults who have the habit of wearing socks (whether normal or heated) in bed have the ability to drowse off easily. The reason for this is that the socks become the symbol for vasodilatation which means it gives a signal to the brain that it’s time to sleep.
• For Raynaud’s Symptoms
This kind of condition that affects the blood vessels by making it feel numb because of the reduced blood flow to the limbs. The color of the skin also changes to blue or white. Wearing socks can help minimize the attacks eliminating numbness.
