Take Off those PJ's: Here's How Sleeping Naked Improves Your Relationship

Take Off those PJ's: Here's How Sleeping Naked Improves Your Relationship

Snoozing in your birthday suit helps in many ways. 

By Marianne Garvey

Go ahead, wear your birthday suit to bed.

Sleeping naked is so good for you (and your relationship) experts say, for a number of reasons.

1. Improves confidence

Sleeping naked makes you more comfortable in your own skin, say experts, as does getting up and walking around naked in front of your partner. You’ll give yourself a real confidence boost if you learn to love your naked self.

2. Keep cool

Researchers at the University of Amsterdam found that getting naked lowers your skin temperature, without having to adjust the temperature in the room. It keeps you feeling comfortable and cool.

3. Stress reliever

If you are sweating during the night, your cortisol levels rise, which leads to major anxiety. Sleeping naked regulates your temperature more than PJ’s.

4. Itchy, scratchy

Simply end tossing and turning over in ill-fitting pajamas or itchy nighties.

5. Improves your relationship

Skin-to-skin contact leads to more sex and more baby making. One study from the National Institute of Child Health and Development at Stanford University found that men who slept in the nude instead of wearing boxer shorts or briefs had a 25 percent lower rate of damaged DNA in their sperm.
