This post is also available as a podcast: Podcast #015: You Should Sleep Naked, Even in Winter
Sleep and sex really seem to complement each other, and not just because you’re likely to do them in the same place. If you want to sleep better and have more and better sex, try sleeping naked and waking up early.
1. You’ll fall asleep faster.
2. You’ll sleep better.
3. You’ll improve your relationship.
4. You’ll reduce stress and anxiety.
5. You’ll have more sex.
6. You’ll improve your vaginal health.
7. You may lose weight.
8. You’ll look younger.
9. You’ll boost your self-esteem.
The survey of 2,000 Americans, split evenly between self-identified early birds and night owls, found that early birds have more sex per week, on average, than their late-night counterparts.
The survey shows early-risers have sex an average of three times per week, compared to twice per week for late-risers — an impressive 50% advantage for early-risers. That’s more than 50 additional sexy times per year — maybe 2500 over the course of your married life. Seems worth it to me.
How do you and your spouse sleep? Are you intentional about what you wear, when you sleep, and when you wake up? Share your ideas and experience in the comments.
(Side note: I couldn’t find an image of a man and woman together waking up early and happy. Go figure.)
