Sleeping is the most important activity we do at night. It is highly necessary that we get the right amount of sleep as well. Unknown to us, sleeping naked has many benefits so here's the list that might just surprise you.
Benefit number 1: You will sleep happy.
Experts agree that sleeping naked at night helps your body to regulate its temperature - which results in better, deeper, happier sleep. This is because your body temperature falls once you're asleep; a process than can be disrupted by warming underwear or pajamas.
Fabric also plays a big role. Polyster underwear or pajamas can actually accumulate bacteria, cause disruption to your sleep.
According to experts, sleeping in boxers or PJs could damage sperm production and harm the chances of having a baby. What's worst are those tight boxers, they increase the temperature of the testicles, which can cause the quality of a man's sperm to decrease.
So going commando can not only make you sleep happy, it can also make your sperms healthy.
Benefit number 2: You will stay fit and sexy.
In connection to the first benefit of regulating your body temperature when you sleep naked, your body can create a better Cortisol with the right sleeping environment. Cortisol is also known as a stress hormone. If you sleep overheated and not comfortable, your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. With this, you wake up cranky and craving for bad food, resulting to weight gain and a chain of unhealthy habits. Thus, sleeping naked keeps your body temperature down then your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.
Benefit number 3: You will be forever young.
Again as a result of your benefit number 2, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. The great and obvious effect of having a good night sleep is that you will glow and prevent aging. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.
Benefit number 4: You'll have a great love life.
Skin-on-skin contact is the best for all you lovebirds out there. It triggers the release of the "feel good" hormone called oxytocin. As a result, both of you will feel more connected and happy to be together. Cuddling naked is the best way to sleep at night, oh you'll thank us for this advice.
Benefit number 5: No more fungal infections.
For once, all your body gets to breathe and to be free. Your armpits, feet and your private area, let them air out. Pajamas and underwear can prevent these areas to cool and "aired". It can also be a cause of jock's itch and other fungal infection. So sleeping naked is one of the best way to avoid. Again, prevention is always way better than cure. Say goodbye to those fungus.
So next time you ask yourself about sleeping naked, think about these great benefits in mind. You will clearly have no second thoughts going commando at night!

HOW TO MEASURE
Wrap a measuring tape around your hip bone line, making sure the tape is parallel to the ground. This measurement determines your waist size. IMPORTANT: Do not rely on your jean size measurements. Just because your jean size is 34 does not mean your waist is 34 inches. Usually, your waist measurements are greater than your jean size.
