If you’re someone who likes to sleep in their birthday suit, aka naked, you may have been on to something all along. A new study has proven that sleeping with no clothing is the best way for you to catch your nightly Z’s.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, the amount of time to takes you to fall fast asleep is directly impacted by your sleep satisfaction. The main way to get to this point is to lower your body temperature, which signals your body that it’s time to go to sleep. How do you lower your body temperature? Sleep naked.
Not only will decreasing your body temperature helps you fall asleep faster, but you will also sleep more soundly. However, naked sleeping won’t just benefit how fast you’ll fall asleep, but also your stress and anxiety which may be costing you much needed sleep.
The simple act of removing your clothing prior to getting into bed can be stress-relieving for some couples. So, the more relaxed you are going into your sleep environment, the better your chances are of getting deep sleep. One important reason why sleeping naked is better is the fact that you’ll improve your vaginal health.
Sleeping naked gives your vagina a chance to breathe and may contribute to its general health. So avoid sleeping in tight-fitting and sweaty underwear because your chances of getting a yeast infection can increase since yeast typically grows in warm, moist environments.
