There’s a time and a place for nudity, and for most people the list is short: bathing, changing, and being intimate. The list doesn’t usually include sleeping; we have pajamas for a reason.
But don’t underrate the possible benefits of sleeping just in your skin. It may seem glamorous and sexy in the movies, but going to bed in the nude can lead to a wealth of health benefits. Plus, relinquishing your pajamas can save you money and space in your closet.
Don’t believe it? Check out this list of reasons to sleep naked!
Fall Asleep Faster
Going to bed without clothes allows your body to cool down. Your body needs to drop a half degree and maintain that temperature throughout the night to get a good night’s rest. Facilitate this process by wearing only your sheets and blankets!
Ditch Uncomfortable Clothes
Let’s face it—clothing is full of itchy materials and scratchy tags, even your pajamas. Don’t bother trying to find something that’s comfortable, just lose the clothes altogether. This will save you money too!
Protect Your Private Parts
Wearing tight and restrictive clothing during the day can irritate your sensitive regions. Give your body a break and let it all air out. Doing this can limit bacteria growth and prevent possible yeast infections.
Cut Down Your Wake-up Time
Sleeping sans pajamas, while limiting bacteria growth, will make you feel cleaner and more refreshed when you wake up. Plus, you won’t have to struggle with pulling off your clothes in the morning—you can hop right into your next outfit.
Sleep Off the Extra Pounds
Sleeping doesn’t generally help you lose weight, but sleeping in a cooler environment (like one with no clothes) will boost your metabolism during both sleeping and waking hours.
Have a partner? Share a bed? You and your partner can sleep naked, not just for the health benefits, but for each other’s benefit as well.
All the advantages you get from sleeping naked will improve not only your physical health, but your mental health. Sleeping nude will increase your confidence and train your body to be more relaxed, which will be useful even when you’re fully dressed during the day.
Feel Better, Look Better
Sleeping naked leads to better sleep which affects how you feel overall. Your body and mind will be well-rested, which will not only help you feel better about yourself, but will improve your skin and boost your natural beauty.
