Sleeping in the nude doesn't just feel liberating – turns out it's healthy too.
If you're someone who likes to sleep with clothes on – there's a chance you might change your mind after reading this.
There are numerous factors that can determine a good night's sleep. One of these is what we wear at night while we're sleeping, in fact – it is said that this could be the most important factor of them all. Here are 5 reasons why you should just skip wearing clothes when sleeping:
1. You body temperature is regulated
Unless you're a fulltime nudist (which I can imagine might be difficult) – your body, like most of us, is used to being clothed all day long. Therefore, when you crawl into bed with PJs or any other clothes on, it usually takes a while for your body to adjust to the heat. That's why it's not surprising that many people either wake up sweating in the middle of the night or find it to be freezing as soon as the cover slips off. When sleeping completely naked, your body stays at roughly the same body temperature day and night – this is much more natural and healthier.
2. It keeps your hormones balanced
A balanced level of the hormone melatonin is said to guarantee a good night's sleep. When you sleep naked – the hormone is released naturally.
3. Your romantic relationship could flourish
Physical contact and affection releases the sexual hormone oxytocin, which then releases positive and happy emotions. The less clothes you have on, the more you feel these hormones and emotions – therefore sleeping in the nude with your partner can prove to be very helpful in strenghtening your relationship.
4. It's generally relaxing
Do you often feel stressed? Then sleeping buck-naked is a must for you. Cortisol is a stress hormone that just increases when it's too hot, so disrobing cools it down. Sleeping naked also gives a sense of freedom which calms many people. No clothes equals no stress.
5. You'll feel better
Sleeping in the nude has proven to be better for blood circulation than when sleeping clothed. That means you'll have a deeper sleep and therefore feel more rested.
After reading this, I don't see why I shouldn't get completely naked when hitting the sack. If you often don't sleep well, it's certainly worth a try. Please share this advice with all your family and friends!
