Sleeping naked is a question of preference. Some people enjoy it whilst for others it is simply not their thing, or at least they say it is not! Recent research indicates that one in every three people sleep naked with the most obvious benefit being that you can enjoy a cooler night’s sleep. This could not be more true now as the summer months steadily approach. With that said, did you know that sleeping naked is beneficial for your health? In this article, we discuss the benefits of losing the pjs and get naked in the sheets.
Improved quality of sleep
Sleeping naked is a sure way to get more quality sleep. The reason for this is that the additional layers are removed and therefore the body temperature is reduced. This is all the more true for women going through menopause. Sleeping naked enables better rest by helping you to avoid the sweating.
Less sleep interruptions
Sleeping naked comes with less interruptions and you are less likely to wake up during the night. On average, it will take seven minutes to fall asleep. Reducing your body temperature will allow you to get your deserved shut eye faster. When it is hotter, you are more likely to feel alert and awake as opposed to when being cooler.
Sleeping naked is also associated with disease prevention. Quality of sleep and overall health go hand in hand. Helping yourself by sleeping better will reduce your chances of developing diseases and ailments such as diabetes, strokes and heart attacks.
Improves your career
Who thought that sleeping naked can actually improve your career prospects? You see, good sleep is positively correlated with career success.
Speeds up metabolism
Enjoying a topless night could help you with your thinning efforts. Keeping cool as you sleep speeds up your body’s metabolism. This is due to the fact that the body creates fat to maintain heat which indeed boosts metabolism.
Any opportunity to reduce stress should be taken! Enhanced sleep quality maintains cortisol levels. Cortisol is referred to as the stress hormone.
Boosts male fertility
Sleeping with tight boxers or pyjamas could negatively impact sperm production and the chances of having a baby. Sleeping naked allows you to steer away of this problem. Research does indeed support this, as males who did not wear boxers during the night reported better sperm quality.
More and better sex
Sleeping naked can also promote a better sex life if you are doing it together next to your partner.
Studies show that sleeping naked make you feel more comfortable with your body and how you look. Feeling confident has several benefits both on a personal and professional level.
