Do you often stick your foot out of the blanket while you sleep? That’s nothing unusual the researchers said, because there is a logical explanation why we do so.
The team from NY Mag filmed an educational video which
explained why we do it. Sticking the leg out is associated with the regulation of body temperature.
When our body is hot, we are more active, and when it’s cool we are sleepy.
Sticking legs out of the blanket is a good way to cool the body when you go to bed and in this way it is easier and better to fall asleep.
