Disadvantages of sleeping in socks at night
1. Impaired blood circulation
Sleeping in tight or thick socks at night can reduce blood flow between the soles of your feet and your feet, causing your feet to tingle and feel tight. Stiffness issues can occur in such situations.
2. Hygiene issues
If you walk around in socks all day and sleep in the same socks, the dust and dirt from the day can trigger allergies on your skin.
3. Overheating problem
Sleeping in socks all night can lead to overheating and raise your body temperature. This can lead to restlessness and discomfort issues.
4. Affects the heart
Sleeping in tight socks puts pressure on the veins in your legs and causes problems pumping blood to your heart. In these situations, more force must be applied to pump the heart, which can be damaged.
If you want to wear socks at night, please note the following:
- Only wear loose cotton socks at night.
- Always wear clean, washed socks to bed.
- Do not put your child to bed in tight socks.
- Massage your feet well before wearing socks.
