8 Top Reasons It Is Necessary To Sleep Naked According To Health Experts

Sleeping naked might not be the first thing you think about when it comes to improving your health, but there are some benefits that might be too good to ignore. 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. As it turns out, there are many benefits of sleeping naked. You may have heard of some of these, but others might surprise you. Below are some ways getting naked when catching some sleep can benefit you in the bedroom and beyond according to health experts.


You will have a better sleep. Numerous studies have shown that getting some shut-eye in low temperatures does wonders for your sleep. So, it’s a no-brainer that sleeping au natural would help you get a better snooze.If you sleep naked, you’re going to cool down even more, which can help you sleep better and reach that coveted deep sleep phase. Your skin is naturally really good at insulating itself and your body temperature drops to promote sleep.


Fall asleep faster. Your body temperature is one key to how you fall asleep. It’s actually part of your circadian rhythm, the biological rhythm that acts as your body’s “clock” for sleep. Cooling down tells your body that it’s time to sleep, so sleeping naked and allowing your body temperature to go down can actually help you fall asleep faster.

You'll notice improvements in your mental health. Better sleep courtesy of getting naked can help calm your stress levels, making you less likely to experience anxiety, and could boost your mental health.


Boosts body positively and self image. A study that looked at nudists and those who were naked in large groups found higher rates of people with positive body image. Researchers believe this boost in self-esteem was because their bodies were seen by others and accepted as they are. Getting a look at your own body, free of judgment before you go to sleep and when you wake up, could offer you a chance to reconnect with self-love.

It reduces vaginal yeast infections. Snoozing without PJs is also good for the vagina because it gives it some time and space to breathe. Tight, occlusive, and warm clothing covering the vagina can increase moisture and heat and potentially increase or worsen the development of vaginal yeast infections. Sleeping naked would avoid that. So if you struggle with frequent yeast infections, it may be a good idea to make sleeping naked a regular thing.


It's good for your skin. Restrictive clothing can cause excessive sweating, which may lead to inflammation, rashes, or breakouts. Going nude helps the body eliminate sweat and dirt that clothing can reintroduce to the body. Take a shower before bed and let your skin breathe.

Improves your love life. If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active love life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.


Reduce stress and anxiety. Another reason sleeping naked might be a good change is that it could help reduce your overall stress and anxiety. It’s no secret that poor sleep has a major impact on your stress levels. Studies suggest that poor sleep is linked to depression and even increased suicide risk. While stress and anxiety can both cause insomnia, it’s important to remember that improving your sleep quality and getting enough sleep may help.
