Research claims sleeping naked can have some amazing effects on your health. Despite the provocative aspect of it, sleeping naked is not about improving your love life, but it can help. It is actually a great way to improve your overall health, body, and mind.
Whether you prefer to sleep in your undies or in your cozy pajamas, you are about to find out why you should try to sleep with no clothes at all.
1. Your Body Releases Oxytocin
If you and your partner sleep naked here is what can happen to your body. Once you touch each other skin, the body will release oxytocin also known as the ‘’love hormone’’. This particular hormone can:
- reduce the blood pressure
- help with depression
- reduce stress
- make you happy
Also, sleeping naked can immensely improve your love life. It will give you the spark you’ve been missing. According to a survey in 2014, 57% of married couples who slept naked were much happier than the couples who slept in pajamas.
Plus 15% of the couples who slept naked claimed to have a great love life.
2. Your Cortisol Levels May Reduce
The moment you fall asleep your body automatically reduces its temperature. So, sleeping with no clothes at all can help regulate your body temperature. This way, you can stabilize the cortisol levels and even reduce:
- unhealthy food cravings
- excess weight
3. You Will Sleep Better
When you wear clothes and are covered with a blanket, your body will overheat. This way, you won’t let the body reach its optimal temperature and fall asleep. That is why you are always restless, can’t fall asleep, turning, and tossing.
So, keep the body cool by tossing all of your pajamas.
4. You Might Look Younger
While we sleep the body releases many hormones. One is melatonin or the growth hormone. This particular hormone can help prolong the aging of the skin. But, the best way to obtain these benefits is to sleep in a room below 70˚F (21˚C).
Otherwise, your body will overheat, and you won’t be able to fall asleep with ease.
5. You Might Improve Your Testicular Health
This is a major bonus for all the guys out there. According to the National Institute of Child Health, wearing boxers during the day and sleeping naked at night can improve your semen quality. To conclude their studies, the scientists studied 500 men.
The men were advised to sleep naked for a full year. According to the results, the quality of their semen greatly improved. To this the scientists added:
‘’We have known for a very long time that men who wear tight and uncomfortable clothing always increase their temperature of their testicles. This results in bad semen quality. As a result, we decided to advise men to reduce their body temperature by sleeping naked. ‘’
As it seems, the results were positive.
6. You May Feel More Confident
