Many people love to sleep totally free of all forms of clothing, without any inhibition, and completely naked.
Sleeping naked boasts many science-backed advantages that can help you get a better night’s sleep and positively impact your overall health.
To some, it’s the only way to get a good night’s sleep while many can’t even consider the thought of it.
If you are on this fence, here are five reasons to try out naked sleeping.
1. Better sleep
There is a sense of freedom in sleeping without any restrictions, no clothes to limit the movements of your body parts and your skin stands a higher chance of being fresh in the morning.
2. Helps your skin
During the day, some parts of your body are covered with layers of clothes. Sleeping naked will give your skin the opportunity to breathe and help reduce the risk of skin diseases like athlete’s foot which results from wet and restricted skin.
3. Slows down aging
It can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone. Melatonin can slow down and delay the effects of aging.
4. Burns calories
The temperature at night is cooler than that during the day and your body temperature must be kept at a certain level to keep you comfortable.
When you sleep naked and it gets cold at night, your body breaks down stored fat to produce heat to keep you warm.
5. Protects the sex organs
For men who are trying to have babies, cooler sleeping conditions ensure that the testes remain at a cooler temperature and this helps to keep the sperm healthy.
In the case of women, cool airy conditions can help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows in a warm and moist environment. A cool and dry environment reduces the risk of yeast infection.
