Many people like to sleep in socks, believing that it makes them feel warmer and more comfortable. Some studies do show that socks can help you fall asleep faster by improving blood circulation in your feet.

However, experts from Health Shots warn that sleeping in socks can carry some health risks.

5 reasons why you shouldn't sleep in socks:

1. Increased blood pressure: Socks that are too tight can compress blood vessels and impair blood circulation, which can lead to high blood pressure.

2. Poor hygiene: Socks that are not changed regularly can become a source of bacteria and fungi, which can lead to odor, diaper rash, and infections.

3. Risk of skin infections: Socks made of synthetic materials do not allow the skin to breathe, which can lead to rashes, irritation, and the development of fungal infections.

4. Overheating: Socks can trap heat, which can lead to overheating and sleep disorders.

5. Discomfort: Socks that are too thick or tight can restrict movement and interfere with comfortable sleep.

Sleeping in socks can have both positive and negative consequences. By weighing all the risks and benefits, you can make the right decision for yourself.
