So Monday night my Man was gone for work, which meant one thing, girl’s night. Who did the girl’s night include? Us.
What did we do? Nothing. Well aside from laying in bed, eating pitas and watching the Bachelor Pad. I’d say technically I was the only one eating pitas but that wouldn’t be a true statement. Bailey ate the lettuce that kept mysteriously falling out of my pita and landing on the bed/sheets. I was born a messy eater, I just was.
You know what else I did? I slept naked in the middle of the bed. And you know what? It was the best sleep of my life. At first I did have one reservation, I remember at some point in time being told not to sleep naked incase there's an emergency. However, after thinking about that for a second I figured, who wouldn't help a naked a girl standing on the street?! Anyway, this all led me to google, “Benefits of sleeping naked." This is where I found a facebook page dedicated to sleeping naked appropriately called, Sleep Naked. Here’s the three reasons it listed to go nude between the sheets.
Comfort and health
Not only is sleeping naked more comfortable, but it's good for your health too. Increasing your level of comfort makes it easier for you to relax and sleep, so you get a better night's kip. The resulting deeper, longer sleep makes it easier for your body to regenerate and repair itself, and build up your energy for the day ahead.
If you sleep with a partner, being naked heightens the level of intimacy between you, and you are likely to have sex more often. You may also feel closer to your partner as a result of sleeping naked with them. There is also evidence of improved fertility in men as a result of being in cooler conditions thanks to wearing less clothing.
Work and lifestyle benefits
If you find yourself tired in the morning or during the day even though you've had at-least eight hours sleep, you may only be sleeping lightly for that period of time. As mentioned earlier, sleeping naked allows your body to relax more immediately, and you are more likely to fall into a deeper sleep more quickly and wake up refreshed.
The facebook page also had a link to this website, www.sleepnaked.org. Do NOT click on it. I’m naïve and imagined it was a group of naked slumber advocates. Next thing you know it was redirecting me to all kinds of nakedness, and let me tell you they were NOT sleeping. This might actually call for a warning email to my Mom…
In the off chance that the IT guys send you an email notifying you that someone in the office is looking at porn, I figured I should clear this up now. I was not looking at porn, I was merely googling “sleeping naked” and I happened to click on www.sleepnaked.org .
The Accounting Associate
Hmmm… Nope, I don’t think that email will render me innocent. It also might beg the question, "what does accounting and sleeping naked have to do with one another?" Everything, that’s what.
In regards to Facebook's, Sleep Naked, I must admit that i'm questioning the Sexual Benefits portion. Everyone knows Survival 101, when stranded somewhere cold get naked and cuddle with another human being to avoid hypothermia. So wouldn't sleeping naked with your partner result in warmer sleeping conditions not cooler? Therefore, decrease fertility in Men. I think Birth Control Benefits (Methods) would be a more appropriate title for that section.
Be Safe, Sleep Naked.
