Why Not to Sleep Naked: Reasons I Don't Sleep Naked
Being a very open and honest person. I decided to get a little personal and tell the Internet world why I don't sleep naked. Odds are the majority of you reading this right now do, in fact, sleep naked. And are probably thinking to yourself.....
1) "Wow, she is getting pretty intimate with this hub."
2) "Why on Earth would she not sleep naked? It's comfortable and freeing, letting it all hang out."
Believe me, I do have plenty of good reasons to not sleep naked. And after reading this you too may change your opinion about sleeping naked. So lets take a look at my reasons not to sleep naked.
My Reasons Not to Sleep Naked
1.) Fires. My house catching on fire is one of my worst fears and I am sure I share this fear with many, many others. And what a horrible time to be naked. Say your sleeping peacefully in your bed when suddenly (I hope this doesn't happen to any of you) your fire alarm goes off. You wake up to the loud noise and the smell of smoke and you are naked. So now you have a flaming house and you have to either a) run out of your house naked or b) waste time finding clothes and getting dressed. A very good reason not to sleep naked.
2.) Robbers. Once again a big fear of mine. Having my house broken into. Similar scenario, you are sleeping without any clothes and you hear someone enter your home. Hello! It's bad enough they are breaking into your home you don't need them to see you naked as well. Put on some pj's a avoid the awkwardness of strangers breaking into your home and seeing you naked.
3.) Pets. I, like many other pet owners, will fully admit to allowing my dogs into my bedroom at night. Sometimes they sleep in the bed, sometimes the closet, and sometimes underneath the bed. I don't think I need to explain this one.... but do you really want to be sleeping naked next to your furry friend? Yeah, I didn't think so.
4.) Kids. I understand not all of us have kids. And some of us who do have locks on their bedroom doors. I personally have no lock on my bedroom door. And I have a 3 year old son who has a tendency of waking me at 3 am by silently staring at me from my bedside. It's 3 am and I was just woken up in a very creepy manner. The last thing on my mind is whether I am wearing any clothes or not. Now if I slept naked I would likely jump straight out of bed and head down the hall to put my son back to bed. Which either a) cause my son to ask a handful of awkward questions or b) frighten him enough that he's never going back to sleep.
5.) Sleeping Walking. Now I have never in my life had a problem with sleep waking. But who is to say I don't start tonight? Sure I might just wander aimlessly around my own house. But what if leave the house and begin wandering the streets or worse yet decide to take a naked drive!
6.) Cold. O.K. this probably isn't going to be a problem for those of you living in warmer climates. Or in the warmer months. But I live in Canada and turns out it gets cold here. And I am not sure if I am the only one. But when I get cold in bed I have a tendency of pulling up the covers and shivering myself back to sleep. You know, rather than doing something logical like turning up the heat or grabbing another blanket. The odds of this happening only increases when you sleep naked.
7.) Significant Others. This is more likely to happen on that night you aren't feeling 100% and you jump into bed with full intentions of going right to sleep. Yeah, jumping into bed naked can send your significant other the wrong message if you know what I mean.
8.) Not Owning Pj's. I understand that a lot of people who sleep naked on a regular basis do not even own a pair of pj's. You are missing out. They are just so soft and comfortable. And what the heck do you do if you go camping or stay at a friends house. I don't know about you. But I personally would find it a little awkward to sleep in my friends bed naked. Or better yet. What if your sleeping on their couch naked and they wake up before you do!?
9.) Unexpected Period. This one is only for the ladies. So guys feel free to skip this reason. Now I get my period like clockwork. But odds are if I were to sleep naked in my nice clean sheets. This would be the time that I was visited by an unexpected period. I don't feel I need to say anymore here.
10.) Exit Only. This is by far my biggest reason not to sleep naked. Sleeping naked leaves one fully exposed. Have you ever heard that we swallow spiders in our sleep? Yeah, I wonder where else those spiders will be wandering if I decided to sleep naked. No thank-you. Not just the spiders. But really anything can enter at their own risk if you leave yourself fully exposed. Not catching my drift? I DO NOT WANT ANYTHING GOING IN MY BUM WHILE I AM SLEEPING!
Now you know why I don't sleep naked. And will possibly be changing your own habits tonight. Best be gettin' yourself some pj's. :)
