We’ve mentioned before that sleeping in the nude has all sorts of benefits, including deeper, better sleep and helping you stay cool while you rest, but this video from DNews wraps up all of those benefits nicely, and adds some more we haven’t discussed.
Sleeping naked definitely keeps your body cooler than sleeping in clothes, obviously, but it’s that slight temperature difference that can lead to deeper, more restful, and uninterrupted sleep. It’s not the only benefit to sleeping naked though—as the video explains, sleeping naked can be especially good for reproductive health as well, and minimizing the chance of yeast infections for ladies, and helping men keep their testicles cool and avoid low sperm count. Of course, sleeping naked has other benefits, especially if you have a partner, as skin-to-skin contact is not only therapeutic, but a great form of medicine for both your mind and your body. Touching helps you build a stronger emotional bond with your partner, and kicks off the release of oxytocin in your brain, which helps regulate mood.
The video goes into a little more detail about each of these, so hit play below to check out the full thing, or hit the link below to read more about it—and some related articles—at YouTube.
