Sleeping Naked Means Sleeping Well

A new study that analyzed survey responses of 2,000 Americans has shown an enormous difference in sleep satisfaction levels between those sleeping naked and those wearing their pajamas in bed.

The study conducted by OnePoll looked into several sleeping habits and causes of insomnia and poor sleep in Americans. 

When it comes to sleeping naked or in pajamas, the results of the poll were astounding! Namely, 53% of those who went to bed in their birthday suit said they slept really well, while only 27% of those wearing pajamas to sleep reported the same.

Moreover, earlier studies have shown that sleeping nude makes it easier to fall asleep because the body can cool itself down before sleep more quickly. Also, it helps you regulate your body temperature better, and the environmental temperature will have a weaker impact on your sleep quality. 

Naturally, this is only possible if you have high-quality sheets, a cover, or a duvet that lets your body breathe and allows you to have a soothing sleep environment.

Oddly enough, although studies show that a colder sleep environment is healthier for falling and staying asleep, the abovementioned survey’s results indicate something unexpected—46% of those who prefer a warm room said they sleep well, compared to just 23% of those that liked to sleep in the cold.

In addition, if you sleep more deeply when naked, it’s good for your overall health and not just your sleep. For example, it’s widely known that this particular sleeping habit can be beneficial for the reproductive health of both men and women. 

Various experts and psychologists also claim that sleeping nude can improve your skin health, self-confidence, and your sex life.
