Majority of us sleep with clothes on no matter the temperature or weather condition. We see this as the normal thing to do therefore the topic of sleeping naked is a rare subject to talk about in our daily lives.
Scientists have therefore proven that sleeping naked is good for our health with their various research works. I will do my best not to sound too scientific but it will be good to read to the end to know the health benefits of sleeping naked.
Sleeping in the nude helps you sleep better
The body is programmed naturally to lower its temperature before sleep begins. Putting on clothes, therefore, hamper temperature fluctuations thereby prolonging the time for the body to achieve its sleeping temperature. Keeping your body cool is key to an uninterrupted night of sleep. Your pyjamas become an external factor that can affect your sleep especially when it keeps you too warm.
Sleeping naked keeps your private parts healthier
The female genital is naturally warm and moist, a perfect breeding ground for infection-causing bacteria. Pyjamas can only compound the problem by restricting airflow. Sleeping in the nude helps the circulation of air around the organs and starve of infection leaving you feeling fresh. For boys and men, the testes are naturally located outside the body to keep them cooler for healthy sperm production. Going nude after a long day of wearing boxers, therefore, can spell better fertility for men.
Sleeping naked is good for intimacy as well. It makes couples literally get closer to each other, and the skin-to-skin contact releases oxytocin. Oxytocin itself has been shown to lower blood pressure and anxiety while boosting your immune system. Oxytocin promotes feelings of attachment and emotional closeness.
Sleeping naked helps regulate your weight
Research by the National Institute of Health suggests that sleeping naked, among other ways of keeping the body cold at night as using a thing covering can help you lose weight by burning more calories through increased metabolism. As the body loses temperature faster under cold condition, it triggers, a feedback mechanism to raise metabolism to maintain a constant body temperature.
