Many people struggle with insomnia during the winter – due to cold bedrooms, dry air from running your heat constantly, lack of sun exposure and more. Here’s a surprising tip that might help you sleep better in these colder winter months. Wear socks in bed. That’s right.

I was skeptical, but I’ve tried it the last few nights, and so far I do feel like I’ve slept better. Try it for yourself.
