The Surprising Effects Of Sleeping Naked At Night!
Do you enjoy sleeping naked at night? Whether out of comfort or tardiness, falling into slumber with no clothes on has surprising benefits for your body. But before we get into that, let’s also stress how it affects our romantic relationships.
Sleeping bare-naked with your partner creates a more intimate sensation for the both of you. It also lowers blood pressure, strengthens the immune system and reduces feelings of tiredness. Plus, it intensifies sexual desire between you and your partner, increasing the feeling of being sexy.
According to the international study of the National American Sleep Foundation, sleeping naked improves the quality of sleep. Sleep becomes deeper as the body temperature gets lower. Also, it reduces the chance of bacterial proliferation due to less moisture and heat. For women, their private areas becomes less damp and less susceptible to infections. For men, their testicles get cooler, improving sperm health. The skin also benefits, as it breathes better without clothes.
More and more experts are promoting this way of sleeping. Here is a list of the benefits sleeping naked provides:
-1.Sleeping Naked Leads to Better Sleep
We’ve always known that quality sleep is good for your brain, but recent research from the University of Rochester demonstrates exactly how so. The study found that when you sleep your brain removes toxic proteins from its neurons that are by-products of neural activity when you’re awake. The catch here is that your brain can only adequately remove these toxic proteins when you have sufficient quality sleep. When you don’t get high-quality, deep sleep, the toxic proteins remain in your brain cells, wreaking havoc and ultimately impairing your ability to think. This slows your ability to process information and problem solve, kills your creativity, and increases your emotional reactivity (something you can measure with an emotional intelligence test).
Researchers at the University of Amsterdam found that lowering your skin temperature increases the depth of your sleep and reduces the number of times you wake up in the night. Stripping down to your birthday suit is a great way to lower your skin temperature without changing the temperature of the room.
-2.Sleeping Naked Reduces Stress
We all know that prolonged stress is bad news. It suppresses your immune system and increases your risk of heart disease, depression, and obesity in addition to decreasing your cognitive performance. Stress throws your cortisol levels out of whack. Proper rest helps to restore normal cortisol levels, which improves your stress level regardless of what’s happening around you. As described in the section above, sleeping naked will help you to get a better night’s sleep.
-3.Sleeping Naked Is Healthier
Sleeping naked has a slew of health benefits, including helping you to lose weight. A study conducted by the U.S. National Institutes of Health found that keeping yourself cool while you sleep speeds the body’s metabolism because your body creates more brown fat to keep you warm. Brown fat produces heat by burning calories (300 times more heat than any organ in the body), and this boosts your metabolism all day long to help you lose weight. In addition to the metabolic effects of sleeping in the buff, removing your clothes improves blood circulation, which is good for your heart and muscles. The quality sleep you’ll enjoy also increases the release of growth hormone and melatonin, both of which have anti-aging benefits.
-4.Sleeping Naked Builds Confidence
Confidence doesn’t just feel good; it’s the pillar of success. It pushes you to try new things, take on challenges, and persevere in the face of adversity. A University of Melbourne study found that confident people earn higher wages and get promoted more often than their less confident counterparts. Sleeping naked makes you more comfortable in your own skin. As your comfort with your body increases, so does your self-esteem and confidence.
