How to Sleep without Wearing Underwear:

1. Panties First.

For married couple, sleeping nakedly will bring no problem. However, people who are still single might feel awkward when they have to sleep nude. Therefore, wearing ONLY panties is one of the options to get used to new sleeping habit. After we feel comfortable when sleeping only with panties, take off our bra before sleeping deserves another try. Moreover, we have to bear in our mind that sleeping nakedly provides our skin receives more air exposure so that it becomes clearer.

2. Choose Fabrics from Natural Materials.

Since sleeping without underwear makes our skin free for seven to eight hours, we should choose fabrics from natural materials, such as cotton, to make the air circulates perfectly through our body. Polyester or other synthetic materials are not healthy for your skin because they might block the air. Choosing organic fibers sheets is another healthy option because our skin is free from any chemicals.

3. Regularly Change the Sheets.

People spend seven to eight hours on bed a day for sleeping. While we sleep, our skin body releases the substances that patch on our sheets. The substances are:

  • sweat
  • saliva
  • dead skin

Those substances are later become the food for mites that live in our bed. Thus, it is suggested to change the sheets once or twice a week. To get better quality of sleeping, we should season our mattress, pillows, and bolsters once a month.

4. Bathing before Sleeping.

Taking a bath before sleeping will deliver fresh sensation to our body so that we will experience comfortable naked sleep. Besides, our sheets will clean longer, too, because we are free from sweat and oil that we produce after doing our all day activities.

5. Keep a Robe Nearby.

In case of an emergency or when we need to go to the bathroom, we should keep our robe nearby and easily for us to reach. Knowing your robe is at a close range will also help you to sleep tight because we will never know the reasons that make us have to leave our bed quickly.

6. Set a Blanket.

Experiencing skin-to-skin contact with our partner will probably lead us for having sex more frequently because sleeping nakedly can elevate the intimacy. In order to both parties for staying comfortable, we should keep a blanket either on one side or both sides so that we can adjust our layer based on our preference.

7. Set our thermostat at seventy degrees or below.

We will have a soundly sleep under cooler temperature. Therefore, it is better for us to set the thermostat in our bedroom at seventy degree or below. Sleeping nakedly under low temperature will make us have our best quality of sleeping. If we feel cold, we can use our blanket. Covering our body with blanket is much better than with pajamas. Besides, sleeping under cooler temperature helps our body in releasing melatonin and growth hormone that are significant for repairing our cells. Failing to have a deep sleep will make our body loose the chance to produce those hormones. Sleeping soundly also helps our body to manage the production of cortisol hormone so that it will not be excessively produced which eventually lead us for gaining more weight and suffering from other health problems.

8.  Turn off the Light.

Sleeping in the dark makes our brain experience a full rest which finally contribute to our soundly sleep. Checking our laptop or mobile phone before closing our eyes should be avoided because the light from those two devices makes us difficult to sleep. We should set black curtains if our bedroom windows get the exposure from the street lights.

9. Adjust Our Sleeping Position.

We should adjust our sleeping position so that the air can flow perfectly to our body. As a result, our body circulation is improving. The perfect air circulation in our body is not only improving our health but also our genital organ.

10. Lock the Door and Window. 

Locking both window and door in our bedroom will make us feel safe and we can have a better sleeping time. If it is not impossible for us to lock the door because of the children, placing a thick towel under the door or putting a chair in front of the door are a good idea because we will have a warning before our children make their way to come into our bedroom.

Knowing the benefits of sleeping without under wear as well as the requirements needed will hopefully bring us to experience a soundly sleep because it is very important to improve both of our health and our genital organs.
