Health Benefits of Sleeping Naked
Is Sleeping Naked Better for Your Health?
How Sleeping Naked Helps You Rest Better
Sleep cooler. Temperature makes a big difference in the quality of your sleep. If your skin starts to overheat, even a little bit, you’re more likely to wake up too soon. Overheating also pulls your body out of the important phase of deep sleep, which you need to fight infection and stay alert during the day.
Sleeping naked is an easy way to keep your skin temperature down without changing the room’s temperature. It also helps you to stay cool overall. This improves your sleep quality and makes you feel less tired.
Brown fat. Sleeping at a lower temperature also causes your body to produce more brown fat.
Brown fat boosts your metabolism by burning blood sugar and stored white fat to keep you warm. High levels of brown fat may reduce your risk of conditions like obesity and diabetes.
Less weight gain. If sleeping naked helps you to stay asleep longer, it can help to reduce your risk of obesity and weight gain. Adults who sleep 5 hours per night or less are more likely to gain significant amounts of weight compared to those who sleep 7 hours or more.
