For those of us who detest dressing up to lie down to sleep, there’s good news! It turns out that there are some great benefits to sleeping naked.
Keep Yourself Cool
One way to get better sleep at night is by keeping our sleep environments at a cooler temperature of about 65-68 degrees (Fahrenheit).
By wearing clothing to bed, we actually run the risk of disturbing our sleep! A 2008 study shows that sometimes, even a body temperature increase of as little as 1.1 degrees (Fahrenheit) can result in poorer sleep.
Since studies show that poor sleep can negatively affect how our bodies respond to stress, sleeping naked could be a natural remedy for calmer days.
Look Forward to Deeper Sleep
Less stress is not the only benefit you can look forward to by sleeping naked. Regulating your body temperature by getting rid of unnecessary clothing “increases the depth of your sleep and reduces the number of times you wake up in the night.”
Sleeping naked might be the way you get better sleep at night. Getting better sleep at night could just be the key to improving your overall wellbeing. Those who get better quality sleep at night tend to have better cognitive function, improved muscle recovery, maintain healthy relationships, stave off illness, and more.
