TOKYO – I never thought I would admit to this, but I love sleeping in socks with holes in them. Wearing normal socks always felt too constricting, but especially during the winter months, not wearing socks was just too cold. A sock with a hole — and the bigger the better — always felt just right.
I never really understood why until Panasonic published the “New Common Sense of Winter Sleep” report which sheds light on a few misconceptions when it comes to getting a good night’s rest. Since Panasonic has a range of air conditioning and heating appliances, such knowledge is important to them and their resident specialist Mayumi Kikuchi has found that socks tend to do more harm than good when it comes to preparing the body for sleep.
