All right, it’s time to talk seriously about a subject that we usually tend to avoid. I’ll put it simply: nudity.
We have accepted certain levels of nudity in art and even movies, and there will always be some nudity in the media. But when it comes to nudity in our lifestyle – oh no! That’s just not discussed!
Now, obviously there is a place and a time for nudity. One of these places is our bedroom, but many people are unaware of the numerous health benefits of sleeping naked for the simple reason that it’s not normally discussed. That’s why I am here: to tell you about all the advantages you gain by sleeping in the nude.
Benefit #1: You’ll rest easily.
Did you know that your body temperature has to drop half a degree for you to sleep soundly? This is much harder for your body to achieve when you are wearing pajamas or a nightie.
Going to bed nude, on the other hand, will help your temperature go down naturally.
Benefit #2: It’s good for your private parts.
It’s possible that you’ve heard this one but dismissed it as a myth. It’s true, however, that keeping your underwear on at night can provide bacteria with a nice place to grow, reproduce and spread infection.
Use the night as a chance to get some air around your privates!
Benefit #3: Your partner will like it.
Even if you have insecurities about your body, I promise that your partner does not care. Also, direct skin-to-skin contact can strengthen any relationship.
Benefit #4: You will wake up faster.
You’ll be surprised at how easy waking up will become.
Without the pajamas you will be waking up fealing cleaner (we’ve talked about the bacteria before, and besides you’ll be less likely to sweat at night.) In addition, without the previously necessary step of disrobing your morning routine will become shorter.
Benefit #5: You will drop a dress size.
The idea of losing weight while you are asleep is tempting, isn’t it? It is really much easier to achieve without clothes. There is a scientific explanation for this, if you do not believe me.
Sleep burns calories too. Sleeping in a cooler environment fastens your metabolism and makes your body burn calories faster during sleeping hours (and while you’re awake too).
Benefit #6: It’s more comfortable.
Have you ever woken up because your night clothes were itchy or too tight? Have you ever felt uncomfortably hot from being wrapped in too many layers?
As if the pillows, sheets and blankets were not enough, you also have to struggle with your pajamas. But without the pajamas, everything will be more comfortable and the rest of the bedding can still keep you warm.
Benefit #7: You’ll be looking better.
It’s hard to say why, but those who sleep naked tend to look better the next day.
It’s probably the combination of all the above benefits: sleep quality, cleanliness and the fact that sleeping without clothes on helps your body get rid of dead skin cells and hair faster, while maintaining the natural oil balance of your skin.
Benefit #8: It’s great for stress relief.
Once again, the combination of all the above benefits will leave you more relaxed. In fact, I already feel more relaxed just knowing all this.
So, are you ready to get rid of your pajamas? Your body and your self-esteem will certainly thank you!
