A topic that people tend to avoid is nudity because it is not considered ‘polite’ conversation. While we are able to accept nudity in certain contexts such as comic relief and part of a movie, we seem to be unable to talk about it outside of this. This acceptance in the media, but not in our homes makes it hard to consider the benefits that nudity, particularly sleeping in the nude, can offer.
Of course, there is a place and time for nudity but most people do not take advantage of these times. One of the best times to be naked is while you sleep because there are a number of benefits that it provides. When going to bed most people put on their pajamas, but you should take the time to consider if going nude would be best for you.
You’ll Sleep Better
When you sleep you body temperature drops by half a degree to ensure that you are sleeping comfortably and soundly. It is often harder for your body to achieve this temperature drop and maintain it when you are wearing flannel pajamas. Sleeping in the nude will help your body temperature drop to a comfortable level and maintain this level throughout the night. Not only are you helping your body by doing this, but a better night’s sleep will help many other aspects of your day.
It’s Good For Hygiene
You may not have heard this, but having constricting clothing around your private parts can be bad for you. When you leave your underwear on overnight you could be creating the ideal breeding ground for bacteria which can lead to infections such as a yeast infection. By taking off this restrictive clothing you will be removing many elements that make the area a good place for bacteria to breed.
Think About Your Partner
If you are honest with yourself you would consider that you would like to have your partner naked in bed with you every night. While this is a problem for many people who feel insecure about their bodies, your partner should not have a problem with seeing you in your natural state. There are also psychological advantages to sleeping nude with your partner including extra intimacy which could strengthen your relationship.
It Makes Waking Up Easier
A lot of people do not want to wake up and get out of bed in the morning and they are sure that sleeping in the nude will not help with this. However, people who sleep in the nude often wake up feeling cleaner and more refreshed because they have not been sweating in their night clothes. There is also the fact that you will have a jump start on your morning routine as you do not have to remove your pajamas before getting ready for the day.
You Could Lose Weight
Weight loss can be a nightmare for most people and the idea of losing weight while you sleep would be a welcome one. While you will not be shedding pounds in your sleep you will be making weight loss easier. When you sleep in a cool and comfortable environment you will be getting more restful sleep and this will affect your metabolism. The kick that your metabolism gets from your rest will help you lose weight a bit easier than just exercising and dieting alone.
It’s More Comfortable
There are a lot of people who wake up in the night because their clothing has tangled or there is an itchy tag against their back. When you sleep in the nude you do not have to worry about this and once you find a comfortable position you will fall into a good sleep. The fact that your body is also able to easily regulate its temperature when you sleep nude could lead to increased comfort in bed.
You Could Look Better The Next Day
Many people find that when they sleep in the nude they look better the next day. This could be attributed to a number of factors including having a better night’s sleep and improved cleanliness from not sweating in clothing. When you sleep in the nude it is also easier for your body to shed dead skin cells and replenish the oils on your skin.
It Is A Stress Reliever
When you sleep in the nude you will probably feel more relaxed in general, at least once you get used to it. This relaxation comes from the combination of all the benefits that sleeping in the nude has to offer. There is also the fact that many people who sleep nude find that they are more confident and when you are more confident you might have less to worry about which in turn will reduce your stress levels.
There are many reasons why you should ditch your pajamas and sleep in the nude. If you are not sure you should at least try it out and see if you feel any of the many benefits on offer.
