Wish you could spend more of your time in bed snoozing, instead of waiting to fall asleep? The solution is in your sock drawer. Swiss researchers found that people nod off faster when their hands and feet are warmer than the air temperature in the bedroom. Warming the feet dilates the blood vessels, which is a physiological cue for the onset of sleep. So put on some socks before you turn in! You’ll be in dreamland in no time.
