Sleeping Naked: 8 Benefits Of Hitting The Hay In Your Birthday Suit


By Rebecca Endicott | Little Things

sleeping naked

To paraphrase Fran Leibowitz, the only acceptable response to the question, “Can I be frank with you?” is “Yes, if I can be Barbara.”

That said, I think it’s about time that we all get frank on a topic we tend to avoid all together. Namely, our all-together. Birthday suits. Au naturel. I’m talking about nudity here.

We’re happy to accept nudity as comic relief, as in this hilarious and daring talent performance, and in a wide variety of recent blockbusters. In fact, it shows up in media all the time, one way or another.

But we’re not as good at talking about nudity with regard to our own lifestyles. That’s why I am here today to talk about the unsung benefits of stripping down and letting it all hang out!

Now, obviously, we all know that there’s a time and place for nudity, but I don’t think that we always take advantage of the many benefits of being naked when we have the opportunity.

Nowhere is this more obvious than in our sleep habits.

While plenty of folks sleep nude, there are scores more who go the pajama-clad route, and unwittingly miss out on a whole host of health benefits in the process.

Are you one of them? Let us know in the comments below!

Buff Benefit #1: You'll Rest Easy

Did you know that your body temperature has to drop half a degree in order for you to fall into a sound sleep?

It’s much harder for your body to accomplish that (and maintain it throughout the night) if you’re wearing a flannel nightie.

Instead, let your body tackle its nighttime temperature without interference when you’re ready to hit the hay!

Buff Benefit #2: It's Good For Your “Downstairs”

You may have heard this one from your mother at some point, but it’s no old wives tale.

Leaving underwear or other tight material over your private parts at night can provide a breeding ground for bacteria and could even give you a yeast infection.

Take the nighttime as an opportunity for a little freedom down there, and let things air out.

Buff Benefit #3: Your Partner Will Like It

Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to see their significant other naked on a nightly basis?

Even if you feel insecure about your body, we promise that your partner will be more than happy to see you in the buff.

Sleeping naked also has the added benefits of promoting extra intimacy and providing skin-to-skin contact, which strengthens any relationship!
