I sleep with one foot uncovered. It makes the perfect temperature for sleep.

☺️I know some of my friends slept with bed socks because they said they have cold feet and couldn’t slept. I couldn’t slept with bed socks and I couldn’t sleep with my feet outside during winter time because then I’ll have cramps on my feet. I love wrapping my feet with soft blanket and I slept right through. When I was hospitalised the put leg stocking on my legs to prevent deep vein thrombosis but I couldn’t stand it. I just like my feet wrapped comfortably with blanket when I slept. In summertime I used lighter blanket then. Why do you think bed socks were made for?

I have always found that sleeping with my feet outside the covers is personally comfortable. To each - their own. 🙏

I totally agree with the article sleeping with feet uncovered and have slept in this manner for many years, especially during the Summer months in South Africa.

If I sleep with my feet out, my youngest cat will lick my toes non stop. I don't know what the attraction is. I've had many cats over the years, but never one so insistent on doing this.

I get in bed, both feet are covered and I am asleep in under 30 seconds. I'm very lucky.

Oh no! Got to have my bed-socks on, and feet under duvet too. Sometimes even in summer!
