It’s important that we get an adequate amount of sleep every night. There are some things that we can do to sleep better, including ditching those pajamas and sleeping in the buff. Still, need more convincing? Check out these 10 benefits of sleeping naked.
Less Clothes To Pick Out
After a long day, the last thing you want to do is to have to rifle through your clothes to find pajamas. By sleeping naked, you don’t have to deal with this. When it’s time for bed you can simply take off your clothes and crawl under the covers. There’s no need to pick out another outfit for the day that you’re just going to sleep in.
You’ll Feel More Free
Let’s face it, trying to sleep in clothes can be restricting. When you sleep naked you will feel freer. You won’t be constricted by clothes which can help you sleep better. Overall this can help you fall asleep faster. You might be surprised how great it feels to have nothing in the way between you and the sheets when you are trying to sleep at night.
Better Cuddle Time
If you have a significant other, sleeping naked can feel great. Skin to skin contact can prove to be a good way to bond with that special someone in your life as there are no clothes to get in between you and your partner. Cuddling just feels good which will allow your brain to release oxytocin and so that you can feel happy. Nothing’s better than laying in bed naked while cuddling with your partner after a long day.
It Could Sleep Better
Clothes can distract you when you sleep. How many times have you woken up in the middle of the night because your shorts are twisted or your nightgown rode up? These distractions can keep you from enjoying a deep sleep and leave you feeling groggy in the morning. If you are having trouble sleeping every night, it might just be your clothes that are causing it. Sleeping naked could help you sleep better overall.
Your Skin Will Thank You
Areas, where your clothes cover your skin, don’t get to breathe often. Some parts of your body, like your genital area, are often covered by several layers of clothing at one time. These parts of your body need time to not be covered in clothing. Sleeping naked will help your skin and can lessen the likelihood of certain skin conditions including athlete’s foot.
Cortisol Levels Can Be Improved
Having too much cortisol in our bodies can cause a lot of things to occur such as weight gain and anxiety. Being overheated can increase the cortisol levels in our bodies. Sleeping naked can keep our cortisol levels in check by keeping our body temperature cool. If you have been having any issues with the things mentioned above, try sleeping naked for a few weeks to see if you are feeling better and more able to manage your weight. You just might be surprised at the results!
Melatonin Will Be Increased
In order to fall asleep, our bodies must have an adequate amount of melatonin. You don’t have to take over the counter pills in order to increase the melatonin in your body. Sleeping naked can help. When your body is at a cooler temperature it has an easier time producing melatonin. This can help us fall asleep faster. Many people lay in bed for hours at a time thinking that there’s nothing the can do to fall asleep quicker when in reality, the solution might simply be that they just need to take off their clothes.
It Can Help With Reproductive Health
Both men and women can benefit from sleeping nude. For men, sleeping with no clothes on can optimise their sperm health as the testes will be able to benefit from a cooler temperature. If you suffer from a low sperm count, sleeping naked may help you. Women can benefit from sleeping naked as well. Airing out the vagina can prevent yeast infections. Yeast thrives in warm environments and sleeping in the buff can help a woman keep her vaginal area cooler and prevent these infections from occurring.
You Can Easily Sleep During The Hot, Summer Months
Many of us live in places that have scorching temperatures in the summer months, even at night. Sleeping naked can help them get through this. Even if you don’t have an air conditioner, you can still remain cool and sleep well when you sleep naked. For those that do have an air condition, they may find that they can scale back on it and possibly save some money on your electricity bills. Worried about getting cold in the middle of the night? All you have to do is simply keep a comforter or two at the end of the bed so that you can easily access it if you are in need of a little bit of warmth during the middle of the night.
Not As Much Laundry To Do
By not wearing clothes when you sleep you won’t have as much laundry to do. For those that tend to be busy or just have a lot of laundries, this can be very beneficial. It can not only save you time but also help you conserve water as you won’t need to do laundry as much. You might be surprised to find how much less laundry you have just by sleeping naked each night.
As you can see, there are a lot of reasons why you should sleep naked. Not only does it feel good, will help you bond with your partner and can save you time, it’s also great for your health. If you’ve always wanted to sleep naked, but just aren’t sure whether or not it’s right for you, give it a try today. You just might find that you’ve never slept better. So ditch those clothes and hop into bed to find out why going commando is the way to go for a better night’s sleep!
