Sleeping naked. A thing that feels so natural and comfortable for many of us, but so foreign and weird for others. A topic that divides households! Okay, maybe not quite that dramatic…but it can cause some awkward encounters if not planned for.
“What?” you say, “why wouldn’t I wear pajamas?” First of all, I will say, if you are part of the million-dollar pajama industry, and love to pass out pro-pajama propaganda (say that five times fast!), this may not be the place for you. Things might get a little…radical around here.
I will admit that I was a bit of a latecomer to the no-pants sleep party, and I was all about those jammies through my childhood and teen years. It wasn’t until I met my ex-wife that I realized that some people slept in the nude (gasp!), and that hey, they weren’t all weirdos. I was so accustomed to having a death trap of fabric swaddled around my limbs every night, that I had a hard time sleeping at first. But it only took about three nights of bare-skinned bliss, before I came to adore this new way of slumber.
Now, besides the obvious personal preference thing, there are actually many benefits to sleeping in the buff. Of course, initially I didn’t really consider these much, because it just felt so damn good to be naked under my big, fluffy comforter. But hey, for those of you who like to see some real data before you change your routines (understandable!), I will give you seven awesome reasons why you may want to strip down before bed. So, in no particular order, I give you my seven benefits to sleeping in the nude:
