More reasons to sleep naked
bh’s Liv has always been a big advocate of sleeping naked, but now there is an actual health reason for stripping off in the sack.
According to a US study in the Diabetes journal, sleeping in the nude could lower your risk of getting diabetes.
Senior author Francesco S. Celi said that over time, the study showed that sleeping in a cold bedroom could lessen the risk of diabetes by increasing the volume of calorie-burning ‘brown fat’ and improving insulin sensitivity.
In addition to this, sleeping naked may also prevent women from developing yeast infections, such as thrush (which loves warm, restricted environments).
But if that’s not enough incentive to go starkers (or at least wear something looser) in bed, consider how people who sleep naked also have happier love lives.
Yep, according to a survey of 1,000 British adults by a bed sheet company this year, 57 per cent of nude sleepers were happy with their relationship compared to 48 per cent of pyjama wearers and 43 per cent of nightie wearers. (FYI, onesie wearers were just 38 per cent.)
Now those are some stats you just can’t argue with!
Would you sleep naked or do you prefer your PJs?
