U.S experts found sleep in nude could improve sleep quality !
What kinds of things you wear in bed? Pajama? or just Chanel No. 5?
Do you think about what is the best thing to wear in bed?
According to an International Study by the U.S. National Sleep Foundation, one in three adults sleeps in the nude. YOU? Do you think it is helpful for your Diabetes or Health? If YES, HOW? It is matter of Sleep Quality. Experts said dumping nightwear could improve your sleep quality and help burn calories…. it mean sleep in nude could help your Diabetes. Deep sleep is very important for our health (cell repair & growth, etc)
Dr Chris Idzikowski (Director of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre , Author of Sound Asleep: The Expert Guide To Sleeping Well) says ‘Your core temperature is at its highest at 11pm and its lowest at 4am. If anything prevents that decline in temperature, the brain will wake itself up to see what’s going on, meaning you’ll struggle to get to sleep or you’ll have disturbed sleep.’
When you get rid of your pajama, your body is cool… “The advantage of sleeping naked is it’s easier for the body to cool and maintain the lower temperature the brain wants to achieve” Russell Foster (professor of circadian neuroscience at the University of Oxford) said.
How about ditch nightwear tonight?
David Cameron says he wears pyjamas, Donald Duck donned a nightcap and Marilyn Monroe wore just Chanel No 5 — but what is the best thing to wear in bed?
It seems that Marilyn might have been on to something.
One in three adults sleeps in the nude, according to an international study by the U.S. National Sleep Foundation, and it’s been shown to have all sorts of benefits.
Here, experts reveal how ditching pyjamas could improve your sleep quality, boost your relationship and may even help burn calories.
SWAP BED SOCKS FOR A HOT WATER BOTTLE
Though it’s important not to get too hot at night, make sure you have warm hands and feet.
That’s because for your temperature to lower to the level that triggers sound sleep, your body needs to lose excess heat.
It does this by sending blood to the vessels near skin — in particular, those on the hands and feet — where heat is lost through the skin surface.
However, as Professor Foster explains, if your hands and feet are cold, the blood vessels next to the skin constrict and reduce blood flow in an effort to keep warm and stop heat escaping.
This in turn means your core temperature won’t be able to drop so easily.
This is why people with Raynaud’s syndrome — a disorder characterised by extremely cold hands and feet (thought to affect up to ten million people in the UK, including 10 per cent of all women) are more likely to suffer with insomnia.
The condition causes the blood vessels in the extremities to spasm, reducing blood flow, so though sufferers’ hands and feet may feel very cold, their core temperature is too high.
Older people tend to feel the cold at night, probably because circulation problems become more common.
Women are also more likely to suffer with cold hands and feet, especially at certain points in the menstrual cycle — oestrogen regulates the peripheral blood vessels in the hands and feet, and high levels can make them more sensitive to temperature.
A 2008 study by the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience demonstrated the importance of body temperature in sleep.
