Recently I discovered, due to some outrageous and obnoxiously outdated law, that it's illegal to sleep naked in Minnesota. Wait, what? Hmmm..... well..... whoops.
I live in Minnesota.
And I sleep naked.
And I love it.
Sleeping naked is amazing, one of my favorite things, really, and if you haven't tried it, you're missing out. And although I typically tend to stay away from breaking laws, (breaking rules is another story we'll touch on in a separate post), this is one law I will happily not only break, but shatter. (I say this under the lofty assumption that no one is actually going to bust into my bedroom, handcuff, arrest me and put me in jail for slipping into my sheets in my birthday suit.)
If I am honest with you, my friends, I would like to say that I started sleeping naked due to some great inspiration or information on how it's better for me. But alas, it was due to pure laziness. For reals. You see, I worked in restaurants for years and often returned home close to, if not well after, midnight, and I was just plain old lazy to do both take off my clothes and then put new ones on. I mean really, that's a lot to ask after work, amiright? So, sleeping naked quickly became a habit of mine, one of which I thoroughly enjoy.
And you may think it's odd that I am encouraging people to sleep nakes and therefore not to wear our product at night. Well. I am. Our underwear are definitely better fitting underwear, but as you read more, you'll see sleeping naked is a great nighttime habit and the underwear are amazing during the day. (Certainly, if you are going to sleep in underwear, give ours a try - they're pretty amaze).
But upon finding out about this law, my curiosities were pequed and I couldn't help but wonder why? Maybe some juicy scandal? Something health related? Something dating back to a weird virus strand we have since overcome? But alas, I couldn't really find why it's illegal. (Truth be told, I didn't search that hard. I mean, I design underwear, I don't do research.) BUT, I did find some interesting tidbits on why sleeping naked is good for your health. And I am happy to share.
A good night's sleep is a combination of many things, some unknown. But what is known is that restorative sleep hinges on a good sleep environment (i.e. the proper bed and sheets, etc.) and optimal temperature, which is best between 60 and 68 degrees F. Basically, if our core temperature doesn't cool down a bit for sleep, it causes restlesness and insomnia. Plus, there are a few other benefits, too.
I am sharing this because in doing my "research", I discovered that only one in ten Americans sleep in the buff. Again, wait, what? Peeeepols, you are missing out. Big time. I understand that getting a good night's sleep is more easily achieved by some than others. I happen to fall in the "I-can-sleep-anywhere-and-if-you-let-me-I'll-sleep-till-noon" category, but that's not the case for many. So if you could sleep better (and reap some healty benefits while at it), wouldn't you? So ditch the layers, feel sexier, sleep better and hold onto your youthful looks.
So there you have it. Sleep Naked. And Sweet Dreams.
