SEEEEEEE!!!! Naked is better...I was/am right!

According to a recent study, about 10% of American sleep without any clothes on. But apparently we should ALL be doing it. Check out this list from "Cosmo" of five HUGE benefits of sleeping in the buff.



#1.) It Airs Out Your Junk. Which is good for men, but it's a bigger deal for women, because it helps prevent the growth of too much yeast and bacteria.



#2.) You Sleep Better When You're Naked. Here's how one expert explained it. Quote, "Your body temperature progressively declines as you sleep, which is a natural tendency of the body. So sleeping with heavy pajamas and blankets can disrupt that."


--Or in other words, sleeping in pajamas or using a lot of blankets can actually make you TOO warm at night, which makes you toss and turn and prevents you from getting enough R.E.M. sleep.



#3.) You'll Look Younger. Being too warm at night also messes with how your body releases certain anti-aging hormones.


--When your temperature DROPS it's a good thing, because more hormones get released that help regenerate skin cells, and keep your hair looking healthy.


#4.) You Might Have More Sex. And no, not ACCIDENTALLY. Skin-on-skin contact increases certain hormones like oxytocin, which is sometimes referred to as the "love hormone."



#5.) You'll Lose Weight. When you sleep through the night without tossing and turning, it gives your body a chance to lower the amount of cortisol you're getting, which is a stress hormone.


--If you wake up with too MUCH cortisol in your system, it makes you hungrier, which means you're more likely to eat a big, unhealthy breakfast that you don't actually need.
