Sleeping naked does sound sexy, but when it comes to this post, that’s just a tip of the iceberg. Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night. Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits. When you ditch your sleepwear, you give room to obtain more of these benefits.
Tight undies can be a warm, moist breeding ground for bacteria that causes infections, that is why most people prefer going to bed with their free-flowing pyjamas. However, there could also be reasons why you still need to let go of those pyjamas and embrace sleeping in the nude.
Here are the amazing benefits associated with sleeping in the nude:
Sleeping naked helps your skin: Sleeping naked will let your body breathe! All of it! Finally your feet, underarms, private areas, and armpits, that are usually covered and constricted all day long will finally be able to air out, dry out, and breathe! This can lower the risk of skin diseases, body odors, and athlete’s foot.
You’ll dodge fungal infections: Sleeping naked would give room for fresh air to your private organs thus reducing your chances of having fungal infections. Whereas pyjamas or boxers promote the dreaded ‘sweaty nads syndrome.
It balances your melatonin and growth hormones: When you sleep in your PJ’s, your body stays warm, thus preventing certain hormones from being effective. This also would make you grow older much faster. When you keep your sleeping environment below 70 degrees at night, your body regulates other important hormones such as melatonin and growth hormones. These are vital processes that help prevent aging, help you to sleep better, and are essential to your good health.
Better sleep quality: Sleep experts agree that sleeping naked helps your body to regulate its temperature, thus resulting in better, deeper, and happier sleep. This is because your body temperature falls once you’re asleep; a process that can be disrupted by warming underwear or pyjamas.
Provides a stress-free life: Since you’re sleeping so much better without all those sweaty interruptions at night, your body will have more time to recover from the stresses of your day. The stress hormone cortisol decreases better with your body temperature when you sleep naked.
A happier love life: This isn’t for the single and searching though but for those who share a bed with a loved one every night. Sleeping in the nude could result in a more content relationship.
Having listed its benefits, I think it’s time for you to start taking off your clothes at night! Obviously, there could be times when your clothes are preferable. When you are ill or when it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go go ranger!
