Should You Be Sleeping in The Nude?

Everyone has their sleeping preferences, especially when it comes to sleeping attire. Do you love a pair of silky PJ’s or do you like to be utterly bare at bedtime? You might be skeptical, but there are many reasons why sleeping naked is good for you. Here’s the science behind sleeping naked and why there are many health benefits of daring to bare.

It Keeps Your Body Cooler 

Being cool at bedtime is desirable, particularly during these hotter months. Sleeping in a cooler environment can improve the quality of your sleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation. The ideal bedroom temperature for going to sleep is 60–67°F (15.6–19.4°C), and sleeping naked is one of the best ways to keep your body’s internal temperature low.

It Helps You Fall Asleep Faster 

Your body temperature plays a vital role when it comes to your circadian rhythm. Your circadian rhythm is an internal, biological clock that tells us when to go to sleep and wake up. Your body temperature typically changes throughout the day and gradually decreases after sunset, resulting in that ‘sleepy’ feeling at nighttime. Sleeping in the nude keeps your body temperature low and also helps you fall asleep much quicker.

It Can Improve Relationships 

Skin to skin contact is known for having many positive benefits when you are holding your newborn, and, you guessed it, between adults. Skin to skin contact releases a hormone called oxytocin, which can reduce stress and help us feel happier and more relaxed. Sleeping naked with your partner is a great way to encourage more skin to skin contact, which allows you both to connect on a deeper level.

It Can Prevent Vaginal Yeast Infections 

Vaginas are particularly warm and moist areas, which means they are an ideal place for bacteria and yeast to grow. Vaginal yeast infections occur when there is an overgrowth of yeast in/around the vagina. Sleeping naked allows your vagina to ‘breathe’ and can reduce the risk of vaginal infections by allowing excess moisture and heat to escape during the night.
