Whether it’s skinny-dipping, going to a nude resort, or becoming a human sushi table… these activities just prove that people LOVE being naked! Okay, that might be a stretch. The truth is, many of us are uncomfortable with our own nakedness. But, it doesn’t have to be an awkward thing. In fact, there are lots of benefits to being naked, well, sleeping naked, to be precise! Here are reasons why you should sleep in the nude!
When you’re naked, your body temperature will drop, which can help you fall asleep faster, and in turn, improve your overall sleep quality. According to experts, the temperature of the room is one of the most important factors in achieving good quality sleepy time! Plus, it also helps decrease your stress, giving you a good night’s sleep. But make sure to get comfortable blankets so you won’t get too cold.
Less Weight Gain
According to a study regarding the association between weight gain and sleep duration, they found a possible link between having inadequate sleep and weight gain. Besides, keeping your body cool at night may help boost your calorie-burning abilities, which can help maintain your weight. So who says you can’t lose weight in your sleep?!
Good Vaginal Health
This one might just be enough to convince you to take your panties off at night. According to experts, wearing underwear that’s too tight can increase a woman’s risk of developing a yeast infection (yikes!). This is because yeast likes to grow in warm and moist places. But, if you’re not comfortable with going commando, another option is to wear loose underwear to bed.
Increases Male Fertility
This one is for the guys! If you’ve been free-balling it, then you’re in luck! A study suggested a correlation between wearing tight-fitting underwear and lower sperm count. This might be due to tighter-fitting underwear creating higher temperatures, which can damage sperm. Moreover, another study also found that men who primarily wore looser-fitting underwear (i.e. boxers) had a higher sperm count.
Research has found that spending more time naked can improve your self-esteem and decrease your body image dissatisfaction! So, before you go to sleep, take a good look at your naked body without any judgment, and do the same thing when you wake up! We LOVE self-love!
Maintains Healthy Skin
Take your beauty sleep to a whole new level by doing it naked! Sleeping naked helps improve your overall sleep quality, which reduces signs of skin aging. Plus, having a deep sleep helps your wounds heal faster! So, don’t take your beauty sleep for granted because it helps you more than you realise!
