When it comes to sleeping we all have different sleeping habits. Some love their PJs, some are happy in their old T-shirts with a comfy underwear, and some are perfectly fine sleeping in the nude.
According to studies, only 10% of people sleep naked. This is surprising given the wonderful health benefits that sleeping naked provides.
If you too are not very comfortable going nude – here are 8 reasons to convince you!
1. LOWER RISK OF YEAST INFECTIONS
By sleeping naked you reduce the risk of getting a yeast infection because your vaginal area airs out and ‘breathes.’ And since yeast needs moist and warm conditions to grow, when your vagina is all dried and cooled – it prevents yeast infections.
2. ANTI-AGING EFFECTS
Brace yourselves, ladies and gentlemen – sleeping naked keeps you young. The reason for this is that by maintaining the temperature to around 68-70 degrees we improve the function of the melatonin and the anti-aging hormones.
And while being warm at night is important for some people – you must remember that by keeping your body temperature warm with clothes, you stop the process of the anti-aging hormones.
3. BETTER SEX LIFE
This one goes without explanation. When you think that you both lie naked together and with all oxytocin that is released – you can be sure that your sex life would improve drastically.
4. IMPROVES SELF-CONFIDENCE
By sleeping naked your self-confidence will grow rapidly because you’ll get more comfortable in your own skin and more comfortable with your body as well. This leads to a major boost in self-confidence.
5. REGULATION OF BODY TEMPERATURE
Your body needs to be cool at night. This reduces the levels of cortisol, which is responsible for your appetite. So, not getting enough sleep can lead to overeating, lowered libido, and increased belly fat.
6. IMPROVED SKIN HEALTH
With sleeping naked your skin will breathe. You will release your skin from the unnecessary pressure that clothes can make to it. So, let your skin breathe and experience the great benefits that go with it such as reduced skin diseases and shinier and healthy-looking skin.
7. EASE OF MIND
It just feels easier to sleep without clothes on. You don’t have to worry about buying pajamas or finding clean ones. Just take off your clothes and get comfortable!
With the reduction of the stress hormone cortisol and the much-improved relaxation of the body, you can just add the cherry on the top by not worrying about pants, underwear, or the dreaded bra.
Well if this doesn’t make you happy, what can?
