How long can you stay naked without feeling uncomfortable? Most of us are not comfortable with our own bodies and thus, do not like sleeping naked. But it is a scientifically proven fact that sleeping naked has its benefits. If you are sleeping without clothes, you are bound to have better sleep and lower levels of stress.

Some of the health benefits of sleeping naked includes ageing slower than you should and having a slimmer waist. You must be wondering how sleeping without clothes can help you burn fat. But every aspect of your body's mechanism is related, so one thing invariably leads to the other. Lower levels of stress means better fat metabolism and thus, you have lesser chances of piling on fat.


Sleeping naked is also healthy for relationships. It helps you feel your partner and you also end up having sex more often. In short, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose from sleeping naked. Find out how, sleeping sans clothes can help you live a healthy life.


Deeper Sleep

Are you tormented by insomnia? Try sleeping naked for a change. You might be surprised to see that you fall asleep quicker and sleep deeply. The quality of sleep improves when you do not have clothes to fuss over.



Usually, being naked makes a person feel vulnerable. Sleeping naked helps you get comfortable with your own body. You are less likely to have eating disorders or depression when you sleep sans clothes. It has a boosting effect on your self-confidence.


Higher Rate Of Metabolism

When you are sleeping deeply, your body's rate of metabolism rises. So basically you burn fat faster even while you are sleeping.


Higher Oxytocin

Oxytocin is a feel good hormone that is produced in the body during sexual intercourse. Sleeping naked gives a natural boost to your oxytocin level making you feel really sensual and happy.


Better Sex

Naked flesh rubbing against your partner's warm body is one of the most sensual feelings in the world. You will end up having sex more often when both you and your partner sleep naked. This is good for your relationship and your health as well.


Sleep Away Stress

Part of the stress busting can be contributed to sex. But even if you are alone and sleep without clothes, it helps you relax. Besides, sleeping deeper and longer is natural way to escape the effects of stress.


Slows Down Ageing

When you sleep with clothes, your body gets warm and this interferes with the release of Human Growth Hormone that repairs skin cells. Sleeping without clothes keeps your body cool and also slows down the process of ageing. As your body produces more Human Growth Hormone, you will have fewer wrinkles.


Genital Health

Do you ever feel bad for your genitals? They get rubbed against your undergarments at all times of the day and night. Sleeping naked allows your private parts to get some air. This is particularly beneficial to avoid yeast infections in the vagina.


Improved Blood Circulation

When you are lying down flat, your blood circulation slows down because there is no pull of gravity. Plus, the elastic bands and drawstrings of your night clothes further obstruct blood circulation. Sleeping naked can thus help your blood flow freely.


You Stay Slim

When you have lower levels of stress hormone called cortisol and higher rate of metabolism, you will end up losing accumulated fat. It is a fact that people who sleep naked have lesser percentage of belly fat.
