Cricketing is the latest bedtime habit that has startled watchers. You’re probably wondering what cricket is. Then let us dig into this viral trend in depth.

Cricketing is a strange self-soothing habit of touching your toes together that can help you fall asleep. What’s most startling is that many of us already do it without even realising it, and there’s a scientific explanation why. 

If you use TikTok, you’ve probably seen the viral video that has received over 69 billion views. Cricket foot is a word that is rather familiar to the general public. 

TikTokers, according to Ladbible, have been astounded to hear that they are not the only ones who do this before bed.

“That’s what it’s called?” a TikTok user asked. “It’s something I’ve always done. I had no idea that was so common.” “I can’t help but do this at night,” said another. 

“I try to stop myself, but I just can’t.” “I’ve been doing this since I was a baby.” “I’d just say I like to wiggle my feet, but I had no idea it was a thing that meant anything,” said one user.

What is the reason this trend took off? 

However, there is a physiological explanation for why individuals find ‘cricketing’ so relaxing, according to Dr Eileen Li, a licensed acupuncturist and physical therapist. 

According to Dr Eileen Li, the feet contain several acupressure points as well as nerve endings that, when touched, serve to calm your central nervous system (CNS).

“Foot rubbing or foot massage is a form of relaxation and stress relief that can help improve blood circulation, provide a sense of well-being and comfort, and alleviate tension,” Dr Li added. Cricketing your feet also causes the production of feel-good chemicals, which aid in stress reduction.”

Dr Li went on to say that there are two critical acupressure spots on your foot that are associated with calming you down. The first is Liver 3, which is located at the top of your foot between your first two toes. You frequently happen to stimulate this acupressure point when playing cricket.

Kidney 1 is located under the ball of your foot, between your second and third toes, in a depression that is overly involved in motion. It’s worth a shot before going to bed to unwind and release some feel-good hormones.
