(HealthyResearch.com) – What if we told you that you could reap some health benefits just by changing the way you sleep every night? All you have to do is strip down, and sleep naked. While that might sound uncomfortable at first, it’s very natural — and it’s also good for your health. What can sleeping naked do for you? Here are some of the great benefits you’ll get when you choose to sleep in the buff.
You Can Fall Asleep Faster When You’re Naked
How quickly you’re able to fall asleep may play a big role in the amount of sleep you get, since laying awake for hours could mean a shorter night’s rest. When you have to get up early or are on a set schedule, you might find that falling asleep faster is the way to go. When you’re cooler, your natural circadian rhythm isn’t interrupted and your body understands that it’s time for sleep. Sleeping naked means being cooler, and that contributes to falling asleep more quickly.
Your Lowered Skin Temperature Means Deeper Sleep
Sleeping more deeply can help you think clearly and accomplish more during the day. According to a 2012 study from the National Institutes of Health, the temperature when you’re sleeping is one of the most important contributors to deep sleep. If it’s too warm — or if your skin temperature is too high — you’re not going to be sleeping well. Because of that, you won’t feel as rested and your brainpower will suffer. But you can help avoid that by stripping down at night.
Your Stress Levels Will Be Lower When Sleeping in the Nude
It’s no secret that stress can be a big problem in a lot of ways. It can keep you from sleeping well, cause overeating, and contribute to cortisol in the body. It can also be a catalyst for unhealthy habits and even add to depression and anxiety. To lower stress levels, there are a lot of things that can be done — and one of them, say researchers published in The Journal of Clinical Psychology — is sleeping naked to reduce body temperature.
No matter why you might choose to sleep naked, it’s clear that there are plenty of benefits you may get from this practice. Go ahead and try it out. It’s easy to do, and you might just find that you get deeper, more restful sleep and more energy to tackle everything life hands you during the day, as well.
