During summers people usually tend to ditch thick blankets, pajamas and shift to comfy clothes while hitting the bed, however, the warm weather conditions at times does make having a sound sleep a distant dream.  Many people believe that sleeping naked might help in a sound sleep but experts believe that it might not be the brightest idea.

Julius Patrick, the Lead Sleep Physiologist at Bupa’s Cromwell Hospital, in an interview said that sleeping naked can worsen one’s slumber. Patrick said that sleeping naked prevents the sweat from evaporating from your body, and takes away the cooling effect as a result of it.

Instead of sleeping without clothes, it is suggested that one should wear ‘light bedclothes’ such as cotton, linens while sleeping for absorption and drying of sweat.

An easy way to ensure a comfortable sleep when it is warmer inside is to open the windows. If the weather outside is cooler, sleeping with a thin bedcover can also help. Taking a warm shower before sleeping helps loosen your muscles and cool you down, helping you fall asleep faster.

Sound sleep makes one feel refreshed after they wake up and there are other benefits from sleeping well as it improves memory, assures longer life and healthy weight, spurs creativity, sharpens attention, and lowers stress.
