It has been observed that some folks stay in bed for nearly half- of-the-night-time with their eyes wide-opened, while sleep keeps eluding them. To alleviate this condition, Clinical Nutritionist, Shawn Stevenson has suggested that going to bed naked can help improve the situation.
Stevenson, a public health expert, with an outstanding recording of impacting some 3,000 clients’ lifestyles, including celebrities, explained how going to bed bare can marvelously induce sleep in insomniacs.
According to him:” Your body’s sleep cycles are heavily influenced by something called thermoregulation. When it’s time to rest, there is an automatic drop in your core body temperature to help initiate sleep. If the temperature in your environment stays too high, it can be pretty difficult to reach the ideal state for restful sleep”.
In his chat with Daily Mail, he noted that studies have shown that insomniacs tend to have a significantly warmer body temperature than normal right before bed, though exactly why is unclear.
Among his less radical steps to keep cool, were keeping the bedroom between 16c to 20c, wearing fewer and looser clothes to bed and alternatively going naked in bed.
“If you and your partner both sleep in the nude, you can reap the benefits of the anti-stress hormone oxytocin. Also known as the ‘cuddle hormone’, it has a calming effect that counters the effects of cortisol and helps promote sleep”, he asserted.
