Majority of us sleep
swaddled in some sort of clothing; shorts, tee shirt, full-on pajamas or night
gown. Sleeping naked has great health benefits, besides sex. Here are some
reasons why you should sleep naked.
maintains a healthy sperm count
with layers of clothes on causes the body to heat up. There is a reason why the
scrotum that contains testicles which produce sperm is located outside the
body. Testicles are sensitive to temperature, and need comparatively cooler
temperatures for proper functioning, which is why they are located just outside
the body. Sleeping naked allows the body to cool, and thus maintain a healthy
sperm count. Testicles that are kept cooler by sleeping in the nude are apt to
produce healthier sperm. Also when you expose your vagina to unobstructed air
flow every night this can help to reduce the growth of yeast and unwelcome
bacteria. On the other hand, testes are meant to be cooler than the rest of the
body can breathe and rid itself of skin infections
the body and all its corners and crevices is essential. The growth of fungal
and bacterial infections in private parts is very common, especially in hot and
humid climes. Wearing tight clothes throughout the day makes it worse. While
that can’t be helped, one should shed off the layers of clothes, especially
tight underwear, at night while sleeping and let the skin breathe. It
also encourages healthier skin, since there are now seams or waistbands pushing
in and encouraging dryness or wrinkles.
get better sleep
we sleep, our body temperature goes down, but wearing clothes interferes with
this process. Sleeping in the nude helps cool down the body faster, and
therefore, promotes better sleep. Our brain needs a cool temperature to relax
the body, and shedding clothes helps it do that better.
you sleep, your body naturally dips in temperature. It’s beneficial for the
body to cool down, and it encourages deeper, more restful sleep. If your body
is overheated, wrapped in thick socks and pants, you may not be able to release
excess heat, which could rob you of a solid night’s sleep.
leads to greater intimacy and a healthier relationship
is a fact that physical contact, especially skin-to-skin contact, boosts the
production of oxytocin, the happy hormone that reduces stress and strengthens
immunity. Sleeping naked raises the chance of skin-to-skin contact. The
production of oxytocin, the love hormone, also boosts intimacy between couples,
resulting in a better love life.
to skin contact with your significant other increases the amount of oxytocin
your body produces. Oxytocin is a powerful hormone that increases bonding and
feelings of attachment.
naked balances melatonin and growth hormone
in the buff helps maintain a low body temperature that not only results in
sound sleep but also creates a healthy balance between melatonin and growth
hormone, which is essential in cell repair and growth. So basically, if you
sleep naked, you remain young longer.
naked reduce excess belly fat by balancing cortisol levels, your stress
hormone. Cortisol levels drop between 10pm and 2am, so if you are not getting
enough sleep, you may have excess amounts of stress hormones in the body upon
waking that could encourage excess belly fat.
in the nude in a cooler temperature has also been shown to lower blood sugar
levels with the potential of preventing type II diabetes. It also encourages the
body to transform regular fat into metabolism-boosting brown fat, which is
responsible for temperature regulation and improved insulin sensitivity.
