You got under the covers around 10 p.m. last night, but judging by how tired you were this morning, you know you probably didn’t get to sleep sleep until way later. And you’re not alone. A recent report from Sleep Cycle, an app that tracks and analyzes your slumber, found a 54-percent increase in stress among Americans, affecting zzz patterns in teens and adults across the country. Yep, “coronasomnia,” or COVID-19-related sleep stress, is keeping lots of us awake at night.
And yes, there are plenty of ways to up your sleep game, from nutrition to movement and even supplements. But, c’mon, we have enough to deal with these days. We need something simple—and we need it now. So, we asked Frida Rångtell, sleep expert at Sleep Cycle, for her quickest go-to solution to our restless night woes, and her answer was surprisingly easy. In fact, it was stupid easy.
The one trick to fall asleep faster?
Wear warm socks to bed.
