Studies have revealed that we need at least, six hours of sleep and without it, we might face the consequenc€s later. Getting enough sleep is one thing we all desire, but oftentimes, we don’t really get it because of how we sleep.
Sleeping nak€d might not be the first thing you think about when it comes to improving your health, but have you ever thought about it and what benefits you could derive by just doing that?
Since sleeping nak€d is pretty easy to try yourself, it might be time to ignore those pyjamas tonight. And if you’re in it already, then it’s time to strip down and get your snooze on. Yeeeehh!!!
As it turns out, there are many benefits of sleeping nak€d. According to experts, sleeping without clothes on has some great benefits, both physically and health-wise. It actually has some benefits that are just too good to ignore. You may have heard of some of these, but others might surprise you..yeah.
1. You Fall Asleep Much Faster.
Do you struggl€ to sleep, then you should try sleeping nak€d often. Your body temperature is one key to how you fall asleep. It’s actually part of your Circadian Rhythm, (i.e the biol0gical rhythm that acts as your body’s “clock” for sleep). Studies have linked insomnia to skin and body temperature but one of the recommendations is to sleep nak€d in order to cool the body down. Cooling down tells your body that it’s time to sleep, so sleeping nak€d and allowing your body temperature to go down can actually help you fall asleep faster.
2. Improved Overall Sleep Quality.
Cooling your body doesn’t only help you fall asleep faster, it also improves your overall sleep quality. The ideal temperature for your bedroom is somewhere between 60 and 67°F (15 to 19°C). Studies show that the temperature of the room where you sleep is one of the most important factors in achieving quality sleep. If it’s too cold or too hot, you risk impacting your rapid eye movement sleep, which is the dream stage of sleep that helps refresh your brain and body. Sleeping nak£d is one way to stay cool beneath the covers. If you sleep nak€d, you will cool down much better and hence, have a much more comfortable sleep than being in a dress or something else.
3. Helps Keep the Skin Healthy.
Because sleeping nak€d can help increase your overall sleep quality, it can also improve your skin. A small study looked at whether p00r sleep limited the skin’s ability to heal from a small wound. The participants were split into three groups – one that received “adequate” sleep; one that was sleep deprived; and a third that was sleep deprived but received extra nutrients. What they found was that the group that slept well recovered faster than the other two groups. And the extra nutrition? It didn’t make a significant difference in how fast the w0unds healed. This shows that if getting enough sleep could help your skin to recover faster and stay healthy, imagine what sleeping without clothes on would make happen.
4. Lower Risk of Internal Health Diseases.
Sleeping nak€d is believed to also prevent health issues such as depr€ssion, type-2 diabetes, heart diseases and obesity. If you aren’t getting enough sleep at night, you could be at risk for diabetes or heart disease. A 2010 study (Trusted Source) looked at data from 1,455 people over six years and found an association between lower sleep duration and increased risk of diabetes, which in turn can raise your risk for heart disease. By sleeping nak€d, you increase your ability to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, which could make all the difference when it comes to your health and well-being.
5. Reduction of Overall Stress and Anxiety.
Another reason sleeping clothless is a good change is that it could help reduce your overall stress and anxiety. It’s no secr€t that p00r sleep has a major impact on your stress levels. Studies suggest that p00r sleep is linked to depr€ssion and even increased suicid€ risk. While stress and anxiety can both cause insomnia, it’s important to remember that getting enough sleep and improving your sleep quality could help.

6. Improved Vag*nal Health.
Sleeping nak€d is also a great way to increase vag*nal health and avoid yeast infections. Tight-fitting or sweaty underwear can increase your risk of a vag*nal yeast infection since yeast likes to grow in moist and warm places. Ladies who sleep nak€d will attest to the fact that the veejay gets enough fresh air whenever they go to bed nak€d. Yes, you’re able to prevent yeast infection attacks, and this is something most ladies want to avoid. Regardless of what you wear during the day, sleeping nak€d is an easy way to air out your vag*na and keep it fresh and healthy.
7. Helps Boost Male Fertility.
Every guy is excited when they see their s£x 0rgan feeling strong and healthy in the morning and this is something sleeping nak€d can easily achieve. Women aren’t the only ones who benefit from sleeping nak€d. A recent study of 656 males showed a link between wearing tight-fitting underwear and lower sp€rm count. Men who reported wearing loose boxers and underwears especially to bed had a higher sp€rm concentration and total sp€rm count as compared to those who wore tight ones. Sleeping nak€d is a great way to keep testicl€s cool and at an optimal temperature for sp€rm health.
8. More Intimacy, More S£x and Improved Relationships.
While s€x can be a great part of your relationship, sleeping nak€d with your partner can be just as wonderful. Sleeping nak€d can also improve the bond between couples as they could once in a while venture into a quicki€ before going into dreamland. Remember, the clothes are already out of the way, so why not. A study discovered that skin-to-skin contact between adults stimulates the release of 0xytocin, which plays an important role in building attachment between partners.
You Know What’s Even better? Touching your partner is also great for your health not just your relationship; and sleeping nak€d is a fantastic way to reap both benefits.
9. Also Boosts One’s Self-esteem.
Sleeping nak€d is also a great way to get in touch with your body and boost your self-esteem. A study found that spending time nak€d helped boost self-esteem and overall body image, which is definitely a win when it comes to embracing self-love. While there are many people wishing to walk on the streets totally nak€d, bedtime is just the moment for them and this makes them feel more esteemed. Getting a look at your gorgeous body once again before going to bed is definitely a plus.
