When Eva was a girl, she slept in pajamas. It was the norm in his family and culture. However, as she grew older, she began to sweat excessively due to tight clothing and had difficulty falling asleep.
One day, a friend told her to try sleeping without clothes on. Although the concept seemed odd, she experienced a remarkable improvement in her sleep quality. The weeks and months passed, and Eva got used to sleeping naked without the irritating skin and rashes the synthetic materials in his pajamas brought about.
The initiation of a new habit was not unnoticed by her coworkers. Several people considered it to be scandalous, while others admired her courage. Eva loved how she felt each morning: full of vitality, confidence, creativity, and satisfaction beyond his wildest dreams.
There is little scientific research studying the effects of “naked sleep” nor reliable data on the percentage of men and women who sleep naked. However, some studies offer an overview of the potential benefits.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults should get at least seven hours of sleep each night, but one-third sleep less. Lack of sleep increases the risk of heart disease and diabetes, among other problems. If sleeping in the nude helps with the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep each night, then it’s worth a try.
The optimal room temperature for sleeping is between 66 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit (ca. 21 °C). For this reason, sleeping naked helps the body reach a cool temperature more quickly and promotes better sleep.
Skin health. When you are tired and don’t get enough sleep, your skin is more likely to have wrinkles and dark circles under your eyes. Delayed or reduced sleep affects the skin’s ability to heal injuries, such as cuts or blisters. More rest gives the skin the time to regenerate and repair possible damages. That said, no studies show how sleeping naked impacts the skin.
Male fertility. Sleeping naked impacts male fertility. One research suggests wearing tight underwear increases scrotal temperature, which decreases vitality and sperm count. Other research indicates that the cooling associated with sleeping naked increases sperm health.
