Getting enough sleep is of extreme importance to your well-being. A poor quality sleep is one of the factors that can lead to diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.
The amount of sleep is as important as the quality. Both aspects are essential. Many people believe that sleeping naked is the best way to have a relaxing sleep. And, in fact, there are five good reasons that confirm …
- The temperature of the body is regulated
While we sleep, our body temperature drops automatically. Wearing thick, warm pajamas interferes with the body’s natural reaction, which can lead to restless sleep and, therefore, make you feel tired the next day. Sleeping naked prevents the temperature of your body from rising too much.
- Sleep hormones are released
A balanced level of melatonin guarantees healthy sleep. This hormone regulates naturally when we sleep naked. The surrounding light and the temperature of the room play an essential role in the production of melatonin. Ideally, the bedroom is completely dark and does not exceed 21 ° C.
- Regulates the stress hormone
Cortisol is known as “the stress hormone” and is very important in several metabolic processes. If your temperature goes up too high when you are under your blanket, cortisol production increases. A high level of this hormone causes a voracious (and long-term, weight gain) appetite and sharpens states of tension. Naked sleeping helps to balance body temperature and, consequently, reduce cortisol levels.
- The feeling of well-being increases
When you sleep without pajamas, you stimulate circulation, since blood can move more easily through the body. This makes you feel better and, therefore, you sleep better. People with sleep disorders should definitely sleep naked.
- Strengthens love relationships
Love relationships can also benefit from nudity under the sheets. Contact with the naked couple in bed triggers the sex hormone oxytocin, which causes feelings of happiness and has a positive effect on sleep. It also strengthens the bond between the couple.
If you’ve always slept “on leathers,” you may have experienced some of the healthy benefits just mentioned. But for those who keep insisting on sleeping sleepy, why not do the test? It may take some getting used to, but in the end, your body will thank you!
