This got me thinking, if sleeping naked can enhance my life so significantly, what if I spent more time naked on a day-to-day basis? Could it possibly make a difference in just one week?
I spoke with Dr. Fran Walfish, Beverly Hills relationship psychotherapist, author of The Self-Aware Parent and co-star on WE TV’s new show Sex Box, and she thought it was a great idea, as long as my boyfriend (who I live with) was willing to go along with it. She told me, “sleeping naked can be good for your health because it can reduce blood pressure. It can also be a wonderful antidote to stress and depression.” Dr. Fran’s done a bit of naked experimentation herself and said, “the more I walk around naked, the more I become more familiar, more comfortable, and the more things I can like about my body.” All this made me that much more excited to try it out myself.
