The item of clothing that could help you fall asleep 15 minutes faster
A study found people not only fell asleep quicker, but had a longer and better quality night’s sleep when they wore a certain material
A simple trick could help insomniacs fall asleep 15 minutes faster – and it involves an item of clothing.
Wearing woollen pyjamas can help people nod off more effectively, scientists have found.
The material helps the body enter into a ‘thermal comfort zone’ which may then lead to a more restful sleep, the researchers said.
With the body temperature regulated, people can not only fall asleep quicker, but they can also have a longer and better quality kip, a study showed.
Researcher Dr Paul Swan, from the University of Sydney, told Sky News : “Not so long ago sleeping under wool bedding was the norm, and science is now rediscovering the benefits of sleeping in wool.
“Maybe it is not a coincidence because wool regulates your body temperature far better, keeping you in what is known as ‘the thermal comfort zone’.
“You therefore not only fall asleep quicker, sleep longer, but also have deeper, better quality sleep.”
The researcher identified the importance of getting a good night’s sleep on both physical and mental health.
