6 Surprising Health Benefits of Sleeping In The Nude!

Is there anything better than getting home after a long day, stripping off your clothes and snuggling up under the sheets? I didn’t think so! Although pajamas are cute and comfortable – sometimes the fluffier, the better – maybe sleeping bare is the way forward? Why not keep the fluffy nightwear for those cosy nights in, then, once you’re in bed – toss them away, back into the closet!

Turns out, there are quite a few benefits for sleeping naked! Whether you share a bed with your partner, or you sleep on your own, ditching the cotton two-piece can do wonders for your health and self-confidence! Take a look below at a few of the benefits to sleeping in your birthday suit...

1. A Better Night Sleep…

The number of Americans that struggle with sleep issues is forever growing! Record sales in prescribed sleeping pills show just how tough some of us are finding it to switch off and get the shut-eye we need. [1] Did you know, that when we sleep naked, our body temperature will drop slightly - which can help you drift off? According to a study from the University of Amsterdam, lowering your body temperature can improve how deep and well you sleep [2]. As the temperature of your body drops, signals tell the brain that it is time for sleep. So, removing those pajamas is a perfect way to reduce your body temperature without having to open a window or pop the air conditioning on! If you’re someone who struggles to drift off to sleep, finding a way to combat the issue can become quite important. Go ahead and give sleeping in the nude a try…

2. Reduce Stress and Anxiety…

Now that you know stripping before bed can help you get a better night sleep, it comes hand in hand with helping stress and anxiety. Problems with sleeping effect our minds and bodies in a very negative way; sometimes causing anxiety and stress, so when you’re able to get some sleep, it can really benefit your mental health. It is believed that 40 million adult Americans have a form of an anxiety disorder! [3]

Just before you slide into your sheets, why not apply a small amount of our roll-on Pure Rest oil to your neck, temples, behind your ears and wrists? Not only will your pajama-less body help you drift off, but the lavender and cedarwood tones will get you relaxing and stress-free. It might not be a quick fix for a long-term problem, but it can help reduce your stress levels, which in turn can help with stress and anxiety.

3. In a Relationship?...

Getting into bed with your partner at night can sometimes become all too routine! Every night, the same again and again…nothing changes! Well, next time, make sure you both keep your preferred nightwear folded up...in the shelves! Snuggling up together under the quilt will guarantee some skin-to-skin contact, which will release oxytocin (a hormone produced by your posterior pituitary gland) in your body. This hormone – or to some, ‘the love drug’ – when released, can help us when social bonding and sexual reproduction [4]. The more skin-to-skin contact you have with your partner, the stronger the bond you two will have!

4. The Health Benefit…

Ditching your pajamas can really benefit your health…you know…down there! The less material around your vagina the more of a chance ‘she’ll’ get to breathe. When we have clothes that sit too tight around our sensitive area, we can heighten the chances of contracting a yeast infection. The warm, moist environment is perfect for growing unwanted bacteria. A yeast infection is incredibly common – 75% of women will get a yeast infection in their lifetime! It happens when the healthy yeast grows out of control, creating a very itchy and uncomfortable area. So, kick the clothes to the side and snuggle into your sheets naked…your body will be so much happier (and healthier) for it!   

5. More Sex…

Now, let’s talk about sex. When you’re without your jammies, you and your partner will be getting a lot more skin-to-skin time (as spoken about above) – which will, no doubt, end up with you having a lot more fun between the sheets! Regularly sleeping next to each other naked can encourage intercourse more than when you’re cuddling up with restrictive clothing on… it’s very simple, but very effective!

6. Feel Better in Your Skin…

Self-love is incredibly important for our mental health! Learning to love yourself for who you are is a very important lesson we all should try to learn in our lives - no matter how late on. So, spending some quality one-on-one time with yourself when you’re drifting off can help build a positive relationship with, well, number one. When you have nothing wrapped around you, buried under the sheets, you can really get to know your body – all the lumps, bumps and curves! The more time you spend in the nude, the higher your self-esteem will become and your overall positivity towards your body image – wonderful! As well as this, sleeping nude means waking up nude, and often seeing your reflection in a bedroom mirror. This regular exposure to your body works wonders to increase self-esteem and accepting yourself for the skin you're in!

Conclusion…

Well, I don’t know about you, but I know how I will be sleeping tonight! Sleeping in the nude is liberating and very comfortable with many health and relationship benefits. Be it that you’re able to build upon the relationship with your partner, or yourself, scrapping the pajamas and sleeping in the nude brings so many positives to your life. Something so very simple can improve your mental and physical health! So, let’s all keep the bedwear in the draw for the next few nights and see the difference…you may never reach for them again!
