Do not be shy if you wonder whether it is healthy to sleep naked.
Two-thirds of Millennials are sleeping nude – revealed by a recent study by USA Today.
And, yeah, I sleep naked too.
Thus, I can say it for sure, once you try sleeping naked once, you will do not want to get back to your old habit. Yeah, it might be a bit strange at first, but you would see a significant improvement in your sleep quality.
Why I Start Sleeping in Nude?
Like many women in the world (and even men), I am positively inspired by the beauty tips of the supermodel Miranda Kerr. For example, she often takes icy showers and sleeps naked to maintain skin wellness.
Thus, in the last two years, I have changed some habits and the results are surprisingly far beyond my expectations.
Here come the top 7+ unexpected benefits of sleeping naked.
What Can Sleeping Naked Do?
Nude sleep used to be natural to us
I bet that when you looked at the childhood images, you might mostly find yourself sleeping in a diaper or even totally naked with a wrapping blanket.
Then, it is our birth habit that we feel the most comfortable when wearing light or even no clothes.
Now that we are adults, we can still refect their old habits so that we can fall deep into sleep in a relaxed way.
Wearing less is more bearable, especially in summer
Summer nights are a hard time to sleep well because of the terrible temperature. Back then, even when I turned on the air conditioning, I was still woken up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat.
Fortunately, putting off clothes is the easiest way to cool down our bodies in such situations.
The sleep quality is extremely improved!
Know it or not,
We will feel more asleep when our body temperature goes down just 1 degree Celsius. Such an effect on the circadian rhythm is backed by scientific research by Sleep.com.
As a result, sleeping naked makes us more drowsy to sleep faster and longer.
Be free – be happier
When I sleep in nude, I am not only free my body from heavy clothes but I am also relieving my mind from thinking too much about pajamas or the like.
Honestly, I often spent a lot of time searching for what to wear to bed and even more time to wash and maintain those items. This, more or less, was stressful.
Since I slept naked, things have gone far more easily. Interestingly enough, I save time and money for others.
More importantly, I live and sleep happily and healthily.
A good sleep boost internal system
In brief, sleeping in the naked condition helps regulate the cortisol levels and support the creation and balance of the good-for-health hormone.
A cool and comfortable temperature allows our body to reduce cortisol while increasing oxytocin. These chemicals are important to a robust immune system.
Moreover, the melatonin and hormones which are useful to prevent aging and bad skills are supposed to produce better in a comfortable sleeping environment.
As your skin is exposed more to the natural air, the circulation under the hair or skin is clearer and smoother.
Being nude improves fertility (only for men)
If you want to form a habit of sleeping naked with your male partner, then you can also persuade him with a bunch of the benefits of sleeping naked – as above, and especially fertility.
In fact, tight boxers or pajamas could reduce the number of sperm. Instead, men sleeping naked can be more comfortable and productive.
Skin-to-skin connect is far healthier
If you are married or you are living with your partners, then, it is not necessary to be shy when being naked. Even more, you can’t help but touch each other when together.
Sleeping naked gives more chances of skin-on-skin contact. It promotes the “love hormone” oxytocin, which hosts a ton of health benefits and make you two closer and more lovey-dovey.
Moreover, sleeping naked can actually make you hotter and more sexy on beds!
Should You Sleep Naked? – Cool, but Do It Properly
Good as sleeping nude is toward a healthy lifestyle, before taking your very first try, you should:
Sleep with your underwear for a while
From full pajamas set to a total naked condition can take some time. You had better start with your underwear (no bra – for women) to figure out how the new experience is and can you get familiar with such a thing.
Choose a comfortable and breathable fabric
What makes sleeping naked a good beauty tip is, your skin is free of constrictive layer and the air can circulate throughout.
So, also choose pillows and blankets made from preferably cotton and other natural materials.
Clean and exchange the sheets and covers regularly
As your skin can contact directly to anything on bed, make sure they are clean so that virus or bacteria can not penetrate into your body and cause diseases.
Prepare a robe or slip-on pajamas next to the bed
Although you start sleeping naked, do not get rid of all the bedding clothes.
Always, place a robe available so you can put it on in emergent cases or in the morning to keep your body warm and fuzzy.
