Nudes or prudes?

Nudes or prudes?

Do people actually wear pajamas?

In a survey by the National Sleep Foundation , one third of UK said they sleep nude.

Another survey down under found only 18% of Aussies choose to sleep naked.

Experts say sleeping naked is better for your health. Here’s why:

  1. PJ’s are a breeding ground for harmful bacteria

Your private parts will thank you! Underwear and PJs keep heat and moisture locked in- which means those bacteria are having a party.

2. Keep your cool

Studies show that cooler temperatures of about 18 (°C) are better for a restful night. Your body temperature rises and falls with your sleep cycle. If the air in your room is too hot,  it may interfere with your body’s natural dip and keep you tossing and turning at night.

We challenge you to try it out this week! Let us know in the comments below what worked!

Keep on snoozing!

3 Reasons Why You Can’t Get Enough Sleep

Ever wondered why you’re not getting enough sleep?

Let’s be honest – uni students are notoriously good at pulling the proverbial all-nighter. Be it for an assignment due in a few hours or last minute cramming for an exam, we somehow pull through to survive the next day fuelled by caffeine.

Needless to say, the next few days are probably the worst. You’re now caught up in a cycle of accumulated sleep debt and before you know it, you’re struggling to keep your eyes open.

Here are 3 common reasons why you don’t get enough shut-eye:

  1. Taking sleep for granted

Ok so you’ve probably heard the saying “sleep is for the weak” but before you totally dismiss the idea you might want to check out this article: What If You Stopped Sleeping?

When you sleep, the brain is actually forming memories and going through the day’s events. These are really important for your mind and body to repair and function.

2. Caffeine is your drug of choice

Tea and coffee are your worst enemy if you’re trying to get a restful night. The caffeine found in these drinks acts as a stimulant that keeps you alert and restless. Try lemon and warm water instead.

3.  Glued to your screen

Every night, every day or basically everywhere you go. Yes, we’re all guilty of this. What’s important is that you wind down at least 1 hour before bedtime. The light from your phone or computer screens trick your mind into thinking its daytime! Try reading a book or listening to relaxing music instead.
