Equally important as eating, sleeping is one of the essential activities that contribute to good health. Insufficient sleep is associated with a number of chronic diseases and conditions—such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression—which threaten our health.
According to a recent study, every third person develops a habit sleeping naked. This is justified with the fact that sleeping naked increases your intimacy with your partner, promotes a feeling of ease and happiness, decreases blood pressure, improves your immune system and reduces anxiety. On the overall, it promotes a feeling of complete freedom because there’s nothing to tighten or wrap around your body while you sleep. Plus, it’s extremely beneficial for boosting your libido as being naked simply makes you feel more sex appealing.
An international study of the National American Sleep Foundation reveals that every third person sleeps naked. Apart from all the above mentioned benefits it brings on in relation to your love life, sleeping naked also improves the quality of sleep. The sleep becomes deeper as the body temperature gets lower.
Moreover, experts recommend sleeping naked because, among other things, it reduces the chance of bacterial proliferation due to less moisture and heat. In fact, the vagina becomes less damp and less susceptible to infections, while testicles cooler, which improves sperm health.
In addition, this habit is also beneficial for your skin because it breathes freely, which reduces the chance of developing skin diseases. Normally, your skin is covered in clothes and footwear throughout the day and this often triggers sweating, thus enabling chemicals from detergents or fabric softeners to enter your through the skin pores.
Sleeping without pyjamas is also cost-free as it enables you to save on your family budget. You don’t need to buy, wash or iron. If you are cold at night, you can simply cover yourself with an extra blanket.
What Are The Benefits Of Sleeping Naked?
Once you get used to sleeping naked, you’ll never go back to the old habit of sleeping in your pyjamas, as you won’t ever want to give up the comfort you feel. You will love feeling free of underwear, bras, and pyjamas, which will eventually make you feel more relaxed and happier.
Sleeping in pyjamas can be quite uncomfortable, especially if they get stuck or entangled with the bed cover, which can lead to a bad dream or eventually to a poor sleep. On the other hand, when you sleep naked, you are relieved from such unpleasant disturbances, which leads to a better sleep.
Improves Skin Quality
As mentioned above, sleeping naked improves your skin quality because your skin can breathe freely. Even more importantly, your genitals get aired and this ultimately leads to better sexual health. Plus, letting your private parts, armpits, and feet breathe, lowers your risk of skin diseases, unlike athlete’s foot, which normally is caused by wet and covered skin.
Helps Regulate Cortisol
Sleeping naked regulates your body temperature so your body can normalize cortisol production. So, if you are too hot when you sleep, your cortisol levels will remain high even after waking up. This eventually triggers anxiety, unhealthy food cravings, and weight gain. Therefore, sleeping naked balances your cortisol levels.
Balances Melatonin and Growth Hormone
Last, but not least, sleeping naked can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels, both of which slow down aging and are vital for good health.
