It may sound strange, but sleeping without pajamas can provide you with a number of health benefits. A 2012 study found that only eight percent of people in the U.S. sleep naked. You may be skeptical about this, but sleeping naked can improve your mood, the quality of your sleep and even the intimate relationship with your partner. Read why you should get rid of your pajamas, starting tonight:
You’ll get way better sleep.
The natural process of circadian rhythm involves natural declination of body temperature while sleeping, according to The American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Wearing pajamas can possibly alter this natural temperature drop which can consequently disturb/interrupt the body`s natural sleeping cycle, leading to insomnia.
Therefore, sleeping without pajamas will provide you with a good night sleep.
You can air out your lady parts.
Skipping pajamas can be really healthy for your lady parts, says Jennifer Landa, MD, author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women. The female sex organ has its own natural warmth and humidity which can be the perfect environment for yeast and bacteria proliferation. Sleeping without pajamas will provide your vagina with enough airing so that it will prevent bacteria growth.
You’ll feel sexier.
Sleeping naked will make you feel sexier and will boost your libido. This leads to better sexual life which results healthier and happier life.
You’ll reduce your belly size.
During nighttime, the temperature of the body drops significantly, the growth hormones increase and the stress hormone decreases, according to the Huffington Post. This all leads to deep good night sleep.
The sleeping cycle consists of two stages: the first includes body recuperation which is accompanied by lower cortisol levels, while the second is engaged in preparing your body for the next day, so the levels of cortisol are increased.
Sometimes when your sleep is interrupted by the uncomfortable pajamas, the cortisol level is raised more than usual which leads to increased appetite.
Therefore, sleeping naked can help you have perfect body line.
It will improve your sexual life.
According to Dr. Landa, sleeping naked can significantly improve your sexual life.
″Sleeping naked encourages sex and sexier relationships are happier relationships.″
When you and your partner lie naked in the bed, there is a greater possibility for making love than when you sleep in pajamas. This will certainly bring more intimacy to your relationship due to the increased secretion of Oxytocin.
Oxytocin has the ability to lower stress levels, reduce the risk of depression and various other health benefits which can positive affect your physical and mental state.
You won’t have to take a shower in the morning.
Taking a shower first thing in the morning is not really the favorite people`s daily routine because it requires waking up at least 20-30 minute earlier. Sleeping naked prevents sweating during the night, allowing you to wake up with a good hair which doesn`t look messy and greasy.
It’s just easier.
At the end of the day, people are tired and just can`t wait to jump in the bed and putting on pajamas requires a bit more work. Therefore, sleeping naked, apart from being healthy, is much simpler as well.
