I thoroughly enjoy the little things in life, like finding crunchy leaves to step on. (BONUS: when you find $16 because you were looking at the ground for leaves to step on.)
I grew up as a military brat, so I've gotten really good at packing uHaul trucks. You haven't lived till you've driven a 26 foot uHaul with a full sized car trailer behind it in driving rain down an interstate.
I have two cats, named Snickers and Widget. I swear they're Pinky and the Brain reincarnated in real life. Snickers is super smart, and Widget...well, Widget is cute.
I love chocolate, I adore macaroni and cheese, and I just can't pass up a serving of frozen yogurt, all of which tells me one thing: I'm actually five.
Thanks to Cosmo, here are five reasons you should be sleeping naked.
#1.) It Airs Out Your Junk. Which is good for men, but it's a bigger deal for women, because it helps prevent the growth of too much yeast and bacteria.
#2.) You Sleep Better When You're Naked. Here's how one expert explained it. Quote, "Your body temperature progressively declines as you sleep, which is a natural tendency of the body. So sleeping with heavy pajamas and blankets can disrupt that."
--Or in other words, sleeping in pajamas or using a lot of blankets can actually make you TOO warm at night, which makes you toss and turn and prevents you from getting enough R.E.M. sleep.
#3.) You'll Look Younger. Being too warm at night also messes with how your body releases certain anti-aging hormones.
--When your temperature DROPS it's a good thing, because more hormones get released that help regenerate skin cells, and keep your hair looking healthy.
#4.) You Might Have More Sex. And no, not ACCIDENTALLY. Skin-on-skin contact increases certain hormones like oxytocin, which is sometimes referred to as the "love hormone."
#5.) You'll Lose Weight. When you sleep through the night without tossing and turning, it gives your body a chance to lower the amount of cortisol you're getting, which is a stress hormone.
--If you wake up with too MUCH cortisol in your system, it makes you hungrier, which means you're more likely to eat a big, unhealthy breakfast that you don't actually need.
