According to “Healthline”, Sleeping naked might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about improving your health, but there are certain benefits that might be too good to overlook. Since sleeping naked is pretty easy to try yourself, it might be time to strip down and get your snooze on. For your health, that is.

Interestingly, there are lots of benefits to sleeping naked. You may have heard of some of these, but others might surprise you.

Recent studies have shown that skin to skin contact between adults stimulates the release of oxytocin which plays an important part in building relationships. Sleeping naked with your partner increases your chances of having skin to skin contact with them thus, improving the bond. It also improves the s£x life of couples.

2. It Helps To Burn Calories

According to research, when the body is at a cooler temperature, certain tissues known as brown fat are released. These brown fats burn extra calories as the body tries to warm up. It also helps to boost your metabolism and helps you lose weight.

3. Your self-esteem may improve when you start sleeping naked.

Sleeping naked helps you to feel comfortable in your skin. In a publication by the journal of happiness, it was revealed that ” participating more in naturist activities might lead to greater life satisfaction — a relationship that was arbitrated by more positive body image, and higher self-esteem.” This means that being naked whether sleeping or awake can improve overall feelings of positivity.

4. Promote vaginal health

According to experts, sleeping naked is also a great way to avoid yeast infections and increase vaginal health. Tight-fitting shorts or sweaty underwear can increase your chances of vaginal yeast infection and other bacterial infections that can be gotten from fabrics.

Sleeping without clothes helps you to improve your hormone. Sleeping with a low body temperature helps to positively regulate hormones like growth hormone, cortisol and melatonin which are important for mood, quality of sleep, and blood pressure.
