3 Reasons Why You Should Sleep Naked

3 Reasons Why You Should Sleep Naked

Swap out those pj’s for your birthday suit

Let's be honest ladies and gents, pajamas are everyone’s favorite outfit. Not only because you can still wear your camp and high school t-shirt with those fuzzy pants from 8th grade, but also it’s ridiculously comfortable and officially starts your bedtime routine. Since you were a youngster, you were taught to brush your teeth, put on your pajamas, and go to sleep. But, recent studies have found that going to sleep naked is actually better for you. Sleeping in the nude can help you lose weight, improve your sleep, and boost your self-esteem. But don’t fret; you can still wear that cute pajama set that you got for Christmas for a pajama party!

Shed belly fat: Not wearing pj’s to bed can increase your metabolism and promote fat burn. When your body is cold, your metabolism works harder to keep you warm. The harder your metabolism works, the faster you burn fat. Also, a stress hormone called cortisol can impact your appetite and energy levels. A decrease in cortisol helps you feel energized for the morning. But high cortisol makes you feel hungry when you wake up and crave fatty foods like muffins, pancakes, and waffles.

Sleep like a baby: As you sleep, your body temperature naturally declines. But, if you wear pajamas, you can interrupt this process and wake up in a damp puddle of sweat. Wearing clothes to bed disrupts your sleeping cycle and prevents your body from properly regulating its temperature. Sleeping naked gives your body the ability to cool down, thus letting you fall deeper into sleep.

Feel confident: Sleeping naked instantly makes you feel sexier and helps you get comfortable in your own skin. Spending time naked makes you get accustomed to your own body. The more time you spend naked, the more comfortable you become, thus boosting your confidence. Also, while you gain sleeping naked boosts your self-esteem and confidence, it also boosts the possibility of sex. The lack of clothing and skin-to-skin contact increases the likelihood of having sex with your mate.

If these reasons aren’t enough to persuade you to sleep naked, also consider that sleeping naked is more comfortable, decreases stress, saves money, and is healthier for your “downstairs.” So take off those worn out flannel pants and junior variety t-shirt from 10th grade volleyball- its time to put your birthday suit on.

Poetry On Odyssey: Some Days

A poem that reminds you that you're not alone.


Some days,

You dread the sound of your alarm. You snooze and snooze and snooze and snooze.

When you finally pull yourself out of bed, pressed time forces you to throw on stained sweats

you find yourself chugging a cup of coffee.

You sit on the couch and contemplate calling out of work

You caught the stomach bug,

Or perhaps the flu,

Maybe you broke your collar bone

Or need a new phone

The endless list of excuses repeats through your head as you sit on the couch, wishing you were still in bed.

It takes every ounce

Every breath

Every fiber of your being to pull yourself off the couch

And into the car

And into the building where you work

Some days,

This is just how it goes

You are not alone.

Some days,

You awake to the beautiful sound of birds

Chirping outside your window

The sun sneaks its way into your room

A smile creeps across your face as you realize you are awake to see a new day

You make a good breakfast

You read a few pages of your favorite book

You get your mind ready for the things it will accomplish today

Before you know it you've worked an entire day

Your job is done

As you pull into your driveway,

you take a few breaths

Feeling grateful for another meaningful day.

Some days,

This is how it goes

You are not alone.

Every day is a gamble,

Every day is a gift

The key to getting more good days

Is believing that everyday is one.

You are not alone, this is just how it goes.
