We love and need sleep, but at least one out of three Americans is not getting enough of it. Many of us are not resting long or deeply enough to refresh ourselves. Sleep deficit contributes to a host of issues that impact us physically and emotionally. Research suggests an au naturel solution could cure various sleep problems. Not only is this stripped-down method easy and economical, sleeping naked can also provide substantial benefits to your health. Bare slumber may help alleviate chronic sickness, burn calories, and make "beauty sleep" a reality instead of a dream.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention link inadequate sleep with chronic conditions and illnesses such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and depression. The National Sleep Foundation asserts that cooler temperatures promote drowsiness. Sleeping bare allows your body to cool so you can drift off faster and sleep more deeply.
