It’s not your birthday, but you’re wondering if your birthday suit can help you get a good night’s sleep. Truth be told, there are a variety of benefits to sleeping in the nude. Here’s why you might want to give it a try:
Your body temperature impacts the quality of your sleep.
Your body will regulate its temperature while you sleep. Higher temperatures can be detrimental to sleep, and wearing clothes can - surprise, surprise - make you feel warmer. Sleeping naked, along with comfortable, temperature-appropriate bedding, allows the body to properly regulate its temperature, keeping you cooler for better quality sleep.
It may be healthy for your relationship.
Research shows that sleeping naked with your partner can make you feel happier. Couples who slept next to each other in the buff report feeling more intimate, more emotional, and more connected sexually.
Let’s face it - ditching the PJs saves money.
Why spend your hard-earned cash on clothing you don’t need? Empty out the pajama drawer and make room for clothing people will actually see you wearing outside of the house. Plus, clothing can be uncomfortable while you sleep.
Sleeping naked can help build confidence.
Looking for a way to boost your self-esteem? Try sleeping naked. Studies show that individuals who frequently spend time in the nude have increased levels of self-esteem. As you become accustomed to the look and feel of your body, you may feel more comfortable and confident.
Don’t be afraid to shed your clothes at the end of the day. You don’t have to wait for your birthday to get down in your birthday suit!
