When choosing a cream we will most probably make a research about ingredients, what about when choosing materials for your socks or other clothes?
I am a person who was choosing materials from a very early age. I would´be saying to my mom, that I don't want to wear some clothes, because it doesn't feel good and my decision happened right after touching the material. Today I have developed this sense for materials so good, that I know immediately from what materials is made the cloth that I have in hand. I can almost say that I can smell it as well. Yes, I can smell different materials of course, for example when sweating, the polyester has a completely recognizable smell. But I have noticed that people are not really aware of the materials that they are buying and wearing and a lot of times, it should just look good. And because I am a cotton lady ( that is how some close friends call me ), my first blog will be about cotton and keeping our feet warm.
🧦 As the weather is getting colder every day, we may think to use rather warmer socks and keep the comfortability and optimal temperature for our feet during the whole day. One of the most suitable socks for winter is terry cotton socks. Terry is a manufacturing style where a sock area is knitted with a secondary loop in order to create extra cushioning. Terry style socks are designed to increase comfort for the foot, making it more comfortable but also keeping it warm thanks to the extra cushioning. They absorb the wet very well, so appropriate for sweating feet as well. But take care not for outside sports activities, because terry will absorb the wet and if your feet will sweat long and a lot; then the socks will stay wet. The socks from terry are thicker, which means that you may not use them with shoes that are very narrow and tight, but preferably with more casual shoes.
That's about terry, but nobody likes having cold feet.
Did you know that keeping your feet warm is good for your health and wellbeing too?
Our feet play a vital role in regulating our body temperature. Like our hands, they have a large surface area and lots of blood vessels. These can open up to let more blood flow, which allows heat to flow out of them.
They’re also at the end of our limbs and they have less heat-producing muscle, which also makes them more sensitive and they will be faster to cool down. If they get too cold, our pain receptors are triggered and we feel discomfort – unless we can put on some nice, comfortable and warm socks. Like terry socks.
Having a feet bath in hot water gives such a feeling of comfortability and anti stressing effect – not just in your feet, but in the whole body and mind. It can even help to relieve pain in other parts of the body. And we can all admit, having smooth, cozy and warm socks, can give us a very similar effect during the whole day. Probably the reason for that is, that the feet are intimately connected to the rest of your body, with the 72,000 nerve endings in the feet each corresponding to different areas. This is what reflexologist believe.
Another very convincing reason why to keep warm feet is that cold feet often lead to poor sleep. If our feet are letting out too much heat, we may take longer to fall asleep. Keeping your feet warm helps to redistribute heat around the body so we can slip into a deep, comfortable sleep. A foot bath just before bed works perfectly and to keep warm feet the whole night you can easily use the socks for sleeping, of course, the most comfortable, with not too strong elastics around the leg, not to stop the blood circulation.
And not to forget the emotional aspect too. Having cold feet can make you feel tense, stressed, irritated and feeling bad in general. Your concentration will fall and You will begin to think just about one thing; warm feet bath and warm, warm socks. Believe me, I have lived that situation several times while working outside on the fairs. Cold feet can affect your whole quality of life in reality.
So for the end, I would nicely ask you to comment and share the blog post if you find it interesting, funny and useful. And remember: keep your feet warm the whole day.
Until the next reading my socks lovers.
