- It's good for your Vajay Jay.
Giving your vagina some air is actually a really good idea. Tight underwear, sweaty workouts, and keeping it covered in clothes all the time can make a playground for breeding bacteria and yeast infections — not the dream. Let it be free once in a while, and what better time than while you sleep?
- It'll help you de-stress.
According to The Huffington Post, sleeping naked lowers cortisol — known as the "stress hormone" — as cortisol secretion is activated when you're feeling under pressure. When your body is truly resting and recuperating (between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.) is when cortisol is at its lowest.
- You'll sleep better.
When you sleep, your body temperature naturally declines as part of your circadian rhythm as you sleep deeply. Sleeping in clothes or PJs can disrupt this, so ditch the outerwear and nod off in the nude.
- It could strengthen your relationship.
If you share a bed, the pair of you sleeping naked is a no-brainer way to increase intimacy — and something that has a high chance of leading to sex, if both of you are in the buff.
- It'll keep you looking fresh.
Naturopaths say that being too warm at night can disrupt the release of melatonin and anti-ageing hormones into your body. As ditching the clothes will regulate your body temperature, the hormone release should be regulated too.
