Going naked to bed sounds like the most simple and practical solution to help you improve the quality of your sleep.
Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.
Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.
So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?
Especially for men, sleeping naked can help you get a good night’s sleep and positively impact your mental, physical and sexual health overall.
Check out these reasons why you must sleep naked before sliding in those comfy pyjamas tonight.
- Better sleep quality
Clothes make your body warm and may come in the way of lowering your body temperature and making it ideal to fall asleep.
Cooling down acts as a biological cue to tell your body it’s time to sleep. And sleeping nude allows your body’s temperature to go down faster and facilitate quality sleep.
Many people suffer from a disrupted sleep-wake schedule and occasional sleeplessness. Well, consider sleeping naked or try popping a sleep support tablet that calms the body and mind for a deep and peaceful slumber.
- Alleviates stress
It’s no secret that lack of quality sleep makes you wake up feeling grumpy, well that’s because poor sleep impacts your stress levels.
A study found that when you sleep your brain removes toxic proteins from its neurons that are by-products of neural activity during the day. Your brain can remove these toxic proteins only when you have quality sleep. When you don’t get sound sleep, the toxic proteins remain in your brain cells, build anxiety, and impair your ability to think creatively.
Since sleeping naked improves your sleep quality, catching your sleep in the buff may reduce your overall stress and anxiety levels.
- Healthy sperm count
The scrotum that contains testicles (which produce sperm) is sensitive to temperature and needs comparatively cooler temperatures for proper functioning, which is why they are located just outside the body.
Sleeping naked is a great way to keep testicles cool and at an optimal temperature to maintain a healthy sperm count.
- Makes skin healthy
There is a reason why a nine-hour sleep is called beauty sleep. Your skin uses sleep hours to heal itself from the day’s exposure to the sun and dust. When you doze off, your skin gets the chance to heal and that’s why you may wake up looking fresh.
Maintain a before-bed skincare routine of washing and moisturizing before bed to wake up looking fresh and rosy.
- Keeps you young
Sleeping naked helps maintain a low body temperature that not only results in sound sleep but also creates a good balance between melatonin and growth hormone, which is essential in cell repair and growth.
So, if you sleep naked, your damaged cells repair faster and more often, making you remain young longer.
