We all have those comfy clothes that we get into as we get ready for bed. Those loose, soft and silky kind because they are always promising when it comes to making us feel comfortable as we lay our head to rest, especially after a long tiring day. Nobody wears tight clothes to bed (well, I hope not) because we all know how annoying and uncomfortable they can get, right?
But did you know that sleeping naked is the best to feel MOST comfortable while you’re sleeping and wake up well-rested?
Yep, it’s true. To back this up, there are various studies and research that encourage sleeping naked. Not just because it gives you the best sleep, but also because of the health benefits that come along with sleeping naked.
Here are some of those amazing health benefits laid out for you –
Your sleep is really good
When you are sleeping naked, your body temperature is low. This low temperature helps your body’s clock to regulate your sleep and wake up time. Also, because of the low body temperature, your skin cools off easily and that helps in falling asleep sooner than you generally do with clothes on.
Good Sleep = Less Stress
When you are sleeping well, you have less stress! As simple as that. Sleep is such an important part of one’s body functioning and when that is right, you are able to deal with a lot of high-pressure tasks without being stressed out of your mind.
It is good for your private parts. Also, helps in anti-aging
When you sleep with clothes on, you are depriving your body of getting some air and breathing. Sleeping naked helps get your private parts some air and thus reduces the risk of infections. As a bonus, when you are not hiding your skin under all those clothes while sleeping, your skin gets to breathe well and that reduce the chance of skin diseases and infections. It also increases melatonin levels which help with anti-aging.
Helps in weight loss
This one might spark some immediate attention. So, here’s how this works. As already talked about, sleeping naked helps keep the body temperature cool, right? Studies show that when you sleep naked, your metabolism rate increases. This happens because your body makes brown fat to keep your body warm. And this fat burns calories in your body to create the heat to help you stay warm. This way, you are losing weight!
Sleeping has always been a stress reliever. Sleeping without clothes can give you a sense of freeness and help you calm down.
Who knew there’d be such interesting health benefits (mainly the last two) come out of just sleeping naked?!
