What are the benefits of sleeping naked?
If you sleep with your clothes on, you’re at the right place. Sleeping naked not only feels awesome, but it also has a lot of other benefits. And, no, it’s not just us talking, several health experts have suggested sleeping naked as quite beneficial for the body. Let us not keep you waiting and directly jump on the wagon.
Helps you sleep better:
You might be having your questions about this one to find a link between sleeping naked and stripping your comfy pajamas. Well, research shows that sleeping naked can help lower your core body temperature which in turn helps you sleep better.
Now, we all know how beneficial is a night of good sleep for the body, since it is linked to so many other benefits like reduction in stress, increased immune system, reduction of the risk of ailments like diabetes and heart diseases, reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression, etc.
Protect your sperm:
If you and your partner are trying to have a baby, sleeping naked can be all the more beneficial for you. Research suggests that men who do not sleep with their boxers on can have a 5 percent lower rate of damaged DNA in their sperm than men who wore tighter underwear for the entire day and night. Tighter underwear can result in higher body temperature which can lead to damage of sperms.
Other studies also suggest and prove the link between sperm count and fertility and the type of underwear you wear. So, it is advisable to skip those boxers and go commando for your nights!
Improve intimacy with your lady:
According to a survey conducted among British adults, people who sleep naked have happier and better love lives and share a strong intimacy with their partners. Well, taking off each other’s clothes can be intimate and fun, we agree, but sleeping naked just removes the middleman out of the equation you know 😛
In addition to this, studies show that the skin-to-skin contact achieved by sleeping naked together stimulates the release of the hormone oxytocin in the body, which is also called the Love Hormone, associated with sex, and the happy mushy feeling that you get.
Helps lower blood pressure:
Skin to skin contact while sleeping naked boosts the release of oxytocin in the body, which offers good protection to the heart by lowering blood pressure, anxiety and boosting the body’s immune system.
Makes your skin look more youthful:
We have already told you that sleeping naked results in a reduced core body temperature. This reduced temperature in turn aids the release of melatonin and human growth hormone while we sleep. Both of these chemicals fairly contribute to a healthy and more youthful appearance.
Dozing off without your clothes on can also be quite effective in decreasing your stress levels. Studies have also established this relationship between sleep and stress levels. Good sleep also has a great positive effect on your overall mood. You can also pair your good sleep with some yoga or stretching during your bedtime routine to relieve your body of tension and stress and increase blood flow to great levels.
Sleeping naked and staying in touch with your body is a surprisingly great way to boost your self-confidence. It helps you become more comfortable in your skin and helps in making you feel better about your body, which is great. So, we would recommend you to get more nude time in during the night and enjoy all the benefits of sleeping naked.
Even studies have suggested likewise. The more time you spend nude, the more self-confidence you have in your own body. Sleeping naked is therefore one of the best ways to start and end your day with nudity-induced self-confidence.
Helps in weight regulation:
According to the National Institute of Health, a decrease in body temperature can be quite effective in increasing the body’s metabolism. Now, we are already aware that improved body metabolism means easier and better weight maintenance, without any extra effort.
Well, sleeping naked is great for your mental health. However, it also comes with a lot of benefits for your physical health.
Sleeping naked helps you achieve a quality night sleep and it’s easier for you to sleep for the recommended 7-9 hours which is quite beneficial for your body. This good sleep is linked with a healthy weight, as already described, reduced signs of aging, a better healing process of wounds, healthier skin. Sleeping naked has many amazing benefits that can ultimately lead to better sleep, health, and sex.
Research shows that a temperature of 15 to 19 degrees Celsius is the optimum body temperature for a good sleep. When you’re sleeping with your clothes on, the layers are quite likely to trap your body heat. On the other hand, while you’re sleeping naked and there are no layers, your body naturally decreases its temperature to induce sleep and then gradually transition into REM sleep.
Extremely high or extremely low temperatures can be a great hurdle for good sleep since they disrupt your REM sleep which might result in difficulty sleeping or experiencing sleepless nights.
This is all about a night of good sleep and the benefits of sleeping naked. If you sleep naked, we hope you get all the more motivated to continue doing so, and become more confident in your skin, a little more each day. And, if you sleep with your clothes on, you must try this, especially after reading about all the benefits that come along with it. Most of us experience troubles in sleeping these days, so why not try sleeping naked as well? It might work for you. Try sleeping naked and you might pick up a new bedtime habit along the way.
We hope this helps you out in tackling your problems with sleeping well and skipping the boxers turns out to be in your favor.
