Sleep with Socks On, Start Tonight, Why?

When your feet get cold, one of the best solutions, according to experts, wear a pair of socks to bed. However, the “small” debate renders a simple statement, it’s a good idea. People have debated this subject for years. Reader’s Digest has decided to weigh in and see if they could find the answer.

If you like sleeping with your feet warm at night has been proven to actually makes a difference in your sleeping patterns. According to sleep.org, “Heating cold feet causes a dilation of the blood vessels, which may tell the brain that it is bedtime.  Wearing socks to bed isn’t the only secret to a sweet slumber.

The other side of this issue doesn’t exist, as least this reporter couldn’t find any. I then thought, hmmm, maybe it’s because most people don’t wear socks to bed. Or if the picture above is the only choice, I’ll pass. So they figure, why argue, besides I’m tired. Good Night!

Will You Admit It?

Though many might never admit it publicly, a new survey finds that four in ten adult Americans still sleep with a teddy bear at night. And many of those bears are the same bears kept from childhood. Build-A-Bear Workshop commissioned a new survey that showed “Four in ten American adults still sleep with a stuffed animal.”

Survey: More than half of the survey participants indicated they currently owned a stuffed animal, and 40 percent indicated the toy joins them at bedtime. Perhaps most surprisingly, most of the plush toys out there are no spring chickens — 56 percent of those polled said that they’ve held onto their favorite stuffed animal from childhood for at least two decades.
This perhaps is a reflection of the fact that 72 percent of respondents want to keep their stuffed animal forever.

Describe the stuffed animal have you kept since childhood?

God the Help of Those Who Seek Him

Psalm 121
1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills — From whence comes my help?
2 My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.
