3 Reasons You Should Sleep Naked
When you wake up every morning and ask yourself: “What can I do to make today better than yesterday?” You should probably be asking that question naked. Because that’s the first step in achieving the answer to your question.
When You’re Naked You…
Sleep More Peacefully
Recent studies at the University of Amsterdam show that by lowering your skin temperature, you help deepen your sleep and reduce the amount of times you tend to wake up during the night. Now I understand that putting on the air conditioner may help. But how do you feel about saving some electricity by just getting naked instead?
FAST FACT: The true benefit of deep and uninterrupted sleep is a lot more than what you think. Sure, you wake up feeling rested and have more energy. But you also help your brain get rid of toxic neural proteins that impair your thought process, problem solving skills and creativity.
Unfortunately this is just a nasty by-product of being awake.
Reduce Stress Levels
One of the best things about the fact that sleeping naked helps you sleep more peacefully, is that when you have a proper slumber, it helps improve all your other body functions. For example, it keeps your cortisol levels in check. And the minute that happens, your stress levels immediately balance out as well.
The harmful effects of prolonged stress are no secret. You’re immediately put yourself at a higher risk of things like heart disease, immune disorders, depression and weight problems.
Improves Overall Health
This is by far one of the most exciting aspects of sleeping naked, in my opinion. As was mentioned above, not wearing anything whilst you sleep can lower your skin temperature and help deepen your sleep. Well, that’s not the only thing that happens.
The U.S. National Institute of Health has discovered that by keeping cool whilst you sleep stimulates your body’s metabolism. And creates more brown fat cells to keep you warm. This is the kind of fat you want as it produces heat by burning calories and actually helps you lose weight.
Understanding brown fat, and why you need it is extremely worth your while. Follow this link to see how scientists plan on changing the world of weight loss with brown fat.
With all this taken into consideration, why not do yourself a favour… Channel your inner child and refuse to put your underwear on before bed!
