How many of you prefer to sleep naked? If you do, are you aware of the benefits of sleeping naked?
But science says, sleeping naked is even more beneficial.
Exploring The Benefits of Sleeping Naked
Below is a quick list of 9 benefits of sleeping naked. You may be already sleeping naked, but unaware of the many benefits it offers in both health and career.
So, without further adieu, let’s have a quick look on these benefits.
1. Balance The Hormones
Maintaining the body at a cooler temperature at night promotes an increase of growth hormone.
It also balances the melatonin, which is a hormone that promotes sleep and decreases food cravings. It also lowers cortisol level, therefore, reduces anxiety and stress.
2. Reduces Stress
One of the benefits of sleeping naked is stress management. We know earlier that sleeping naked lowers cortisol level.
Next time you feel stress, try to cool off while sleeping without any clothing.
3. Improves Blood Circulation
Sleep experts suggest people wearing loose and comfortable clothes while sleeping. Doing so allows proper blood flow with lesser restrictions.
Sleeping naked, on the other hand, becomes even more beneficial as sleeping without clothing provides far lesser restrictions. This provides many health benefits to the heart and muscles.
4. Boosts Metabolism
Lowering the body’s temperature promotes brown fat activation. Brown fat is a type of fat in the body that increases heat when it senses low temperature.
In fact, further lowering the body’s temperature through cold showers can better activate brown fats.
People with higher levels of brown fats also have faster metabolic rates, higher sensitivity to insulin, and better blood sugar. The cooler the room, the better the activation of brown fats.
This means better metabolism resulting in better weight loss.
5. Your Skin Will Be Healthier
Bacteria lives in and out of our body including the skin. And, there are two types of bacteria; the good and bad. We have no issue with the good bacteria as they’re beneficial for health.
On the other hand, most bad bacteria thrive in moist and warm areas. So, to cool down, taking off the clothes while sleeping is beneficial. Of course, that includes the underwear.
Therefore, sleep naked completely. This is particularly beneficial for women as they’re susceptible to yeast infection.
Sleeping naked is not only beneficial to skin in the genital areas, but also in armpits. In general, this allows the skin of the entire body breathes easily.
6. Improves Sex Life
Skin contact feels good. For those who are sleeping with their partners, this is an erotic benefit of sleeping naked. A skin to skin contact allows the body to release the love hormone oxytocin.
This love hormone produces the sensation of deeper emotional connection. This is the reason why having sex without clothes or naked feels really good and result in a more intense and better sexual experience.
Moreover, when both partners sleep nude, the chances of having sex is higher. After all, having frequent sex is also beneficial.
7. Improves Sperm Quality
Sleeping in a commando mode is beneficial for men. Have you wondered why a man’s testicles are hanging outside the body? This is because sperms are sensitive to temperature.
The hanging of the testicles is not by accident but on purpose. The temperature outside the body is slightly lower compared to the body’s core temperature. Even wearing underwear can increase the testicles temperature, hence, endangering the sperms.
8. Builds and Boost Self-Confidence
Confidence is one of the pillars of success. Maintaining a solid level of self-confidence matters. Among the last known benefits of sleeping naked is it makes you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
Self-confidence is directly linked on how comfortable you feel with your body. So, develop a sense of comfort for your body by sleeping naked.
The more often you do this, the more you feel the love for yourself, and believing in yourself, which eventually boost your self-confidence.
9. Lowers Blood Pressure
Many people suffer from hypertension or high blood pressure. Fortunately, one of the benefits of sleeping naked is it helps lower blood pressure level.
Earlier we’ve mentioned that skin to skin contact is beneficial as it stimulates the brain to release the hormone oxytocin.
So, do you sleep naked? Personally, I do but not always. During summertime, for sure, I can sleep naked every night.
On the other hand, during cold weather, sleeping naked may not be a good option. However, hugging your partner is an amazing thing to do, instead.
