Why you should be sleeping naked

Yep, it’s official, slipping between the sheets in your birthday suit is good for you.

Although it may take a bit of getting used to, sleeping in the nude is good for you in so many ways.

Lysn COO and Head of Clinical Psychology, Tahnee Schulz, explains how wearing your birthday suit to bed can help all types of things in the bedroom, from sleep to intimacy.

Temperature regulator

“Sleeping naked allows your body to lower your skin temperature, which has been proven to help you sleep,” Tahnee explains.

We all know what it’s like to wake in the middle of the night being too hot or cold, but sleeping naked (with access to a blanket) means that you can more easily adjust your body temperature, without having to adjust the temperature of the room.

Getting intimate

Since skin-to-skin contact can have a whole host of wellbeing benefits, from improving intimacy in relationships to lowering stress and strengthening our immune systems, Tahnee says that sleeping naked with your partner can be a game-changer.

“Skin-to-skin contact triggers the release of oxytocin, or the ‘love hormone’ which improves interpersonal connections and feelings of closeness,” she says.

No restrictions

You may be surprised to find that your pyjamas may be giving you grief during the night.

“You might not even be aware of it, but you could be having an interrupted sleep from the clothes you are wearing (if they’ve moved into an uncomfortable position it’s likely you’ll adjust them subconsciously),” Tahnee explains. “Interrupted sleep can contribute to sleep deprivation, which can negatively affect you both physically and mentally.”

Confidence booster

Sleeping naked has also been linked to body confidence.

“Feeling comfortable in your own skin can have a host of wellbeing benefits in your waking life,” Tahnee exclaims. “Feeling comfortable sleeping naked can help improve body image issues.”

Tahnee says that being in touch with your body can help grow body acceptance.
“Embracing your nude body can reduce any shame you might feel towards it,” she says.

How to save my broken marriage was my greatest weakness, I faced a broken marriage which I did not wish to give up. My husband was very hot tempered, he always pushes blames to me for causing our marital drawback. Though we are married for 8 years with a daughter but we were still lonely and hopeless in marriage. He gave me a lot of excuses why we cannot cohabit unless I seek spiritual help from either spell doctor to deterge our marriage. From the reviews, I read I learned about spell and also Dr. Wakina Love Spell Temple via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail. com. The rendered help by Wakina was everything we need to restart our union. I am happy to have seek the help of spell doctor just as advised by Husband. He is the MAN now, the man of my dream.
