What do socks and salt have in common? They could both put you to sleep! Lack of sleep is a leading cause of lost workplace productivity. Protect your career with these not so obvious tips! First, increase blood flow to your feet by putting on a pair of thick socks. When you lie down to sleep, the body encourages rest by redistributing heat to its extremities. Insomniacs often experience poor blood flow, and, consequently, poor sleep. Wearing socks regulates your temperature for evening, persuading you to sleep deep. And if socks don't work, try salt! Drink half a glass of water, then put a pinch of salt on your tongue and let it dissolve. The combination actually alters the electrical charge of the brain to sleep mode.Now go to sleep already-just don't forget to set the alarm!
