A short time ago, I posted about sleeping naked. I’ve been a naked sleeper for a good amount of time. On some rare occasions you’ll find me in a pair of boxers and/or t-shirt, and on rarer occasions in long pants and a thermal. For the most part, I enjoy the sleeping naked lifestyle, and I’ve just finished reviewing some articles that share that it also has health benefits!
In a recent Men’s Fitness article, 5 Benefits of Sleeping Naked, the author shares that sleeping naked can boost your love life, help you get better sleep, burn more calories, and lower one’s blood pressure. One interest fact, for men at least, is that sleeping naked helps produce healthier sperm by up to 25%!
Women readers might also learn that sleeping naked is good for them as well. Cosmopolitan published an article titled 8 Reasons You Should Sleep Naked. Women will sleep better when naked, their skin and hair will be better and they will have a healthier vagina!
Lifehack also put together 10 reasons why people who sleep naked are healthier. While there are many similar reasons to the above two articles included, it highlights a key point about nudity that I’ve long believe. When you are exposed to your body this will improves self-esteem and acceptance of you, and your body.
For me, this has been one of the most impactful realities of being a nudist. I’m comfortable with my body more so today than I ever have been. In part, my being naked when I sleep, and while I’m awake reminds me of my body. It’s not perfect, it’s a work in progress, but I’m comfortable with it and I accept it for being mine.
So my recommendation to you is try it. It can be done in the privacy of your own home, it can be done without judgment and it can be done with the lights off! If you need a guide, WikiHow has a great article on how you can Sleep Naked.
