Sleeping naked is awesome. It’s liberating, freeing, and you don’t have to worry about putting your clothes on after hopping out of the shower. All you have to do is dry, lotion, and sleep! Doesn’t that sound amazing?? Sleeping naked is not only comfortable, it also has a lot of benefits for your body. I have made a quick list of reasons why sleeping naked is good for you from head to toe. I discovered most of these fabulous reason through a Google search, and just compiled my favorites for you here!
1. YOUR NIPPLES WILL LIFT
According to a 15 year study conducted by Jean-Denis Rouillon of the University of Franche-Comté in Besançon, France, the breasts do not benefit from being deprived of gravity. So strip down! Women who went bra-less discovered that their nipples (and boobs) lifted compared to those who wore a bra on a regular basis. The breasts gained more muscle tissue and were able to support themselves more sufficiently without the use of a bra.
2. YOUR VAGINA WILL BE HEALTHIER
That’s right! As women, we have all been to the gyno for a check up, and they always try to remind you not to wear underwear or pants that are too tight, and to wear cotton undies for breathability. Sleeping naked will benefit your furry (or not) friend because it can finally breathe!
3. YOUR SEX LIFE WILL IMPROVE
This one seems obvious to me. What man doesn’t love a beautiful naked woman in their bed!? Not only that, but skin to skin contact, massaging, and even cuddling can produce the hormone oxytocin, which is known to reduce stress, anxiety, and blood pressure.
4. YOU WILL REDUCE STRESS AND BODY FAT
This one sounds unbelievable right!? But it’s true. Studies show that people who have a consistent body temperature tend to sleep deeper and longer. If you are naked, your body can better regulate itself because you are covered by only a blanket, rather than clothing and blankets. This deep sleep allows you to reduce the amount of cortisol in your body. Cortisol is produced by your adrenal, or stress glands, and can sometimes be responsible for overeating, craving fatty foods, lowering libido, and many other downfalls if you aren’t getting a healthy night’s sleep.
5. BOOST ANTI-AGING HORMONES
When you sleep, your body cools down and allows it to release the human growth hormone that enables you to burn fat while you sleep. If your sleeping environment is too warm your body will not release this hormone. This hormone is responsible for regenerating your body for the next day.
So sleep naked all the time and be firmer, younger, sexier, and healthier! Do any of you out there enjoy sleeping naked? If you’re just trying it out, have you noticed any changes in your body or your energy the next day?
