It’s one of the last things we do before we go to bed is put on pajamas (or pyjamas, depending on your preferred spelling). There are a lot of good reasons to don your PJs other than the obvious one of covering up (you never know when you’re going to have to leave your home in a hurry due to a fire).
There’s actually a pyjama foundation in Australia, and in July it’s holding a National Pyjama Day to raise money for kids in foster care. Meanwhile, here in the U.S., you’re encouraged to wear your most fashionable PJs to work in April (the day after taxes are due). Here are seven great reasons to slip into some pajamas right now (or at least when you get home from your meeting)…
1. They’re a Barrier against Cold
Scientists have apparently jumped on the “sleep in the nude” bandwagon (we won’t get into all the details here, we’ll save that for another time), but some sources, including WebAdvice, say that pajamas are still king.
This is because of the simple fact that good quality pajamas can keep you warm (but still let your body breathe a bit, if it’s the right type of material like cotton or silk). Even if you add blankets in the winter, having clothing on during the colder nights is more effective, adds the source.
