EVERYONE KNOWS THE classic sleeping move that is sticking one leg out of the covers and keeping the rest of you under the blanket.
It’s a standard move, but we never knew the science behind it until now.
Basically, your body naturally gets colder at the time you usually go to sleep. This tells the body that it’s time for bed
This is when the feet play their crucial role – and explains why so many of us naturally decide to stick that leg out and over
Firstly, the bottom of your feet are hairless – and they are one of the body’s primary cooling mechanisms
They also contain complex vascular structures that get that heat out quickly
So, it’s the cooling from the feet that makes you slide that foot out and wrap it around the blanket.
