33 Quotes Packed With Pure Wisdom

33 Quotes Packed With Pure Wisdom

Wisdom is an oft-valued, yet rarely seen trait across the world. Cultures, families, and even businesses revere it, but how many of your own friends would you call wise? I know I wouldn’t ascribe this trait to hundreds of my friends, but I deeply value the friends I do attach it to.

This is not to make people feel guilty for being unwise; it’s simply true that wisdom remains an elusive characteristic. As the adage goes, wisdom often comes with experience, and experience often comes with age.

Many young people are told by older people that they can’t attain certain things in life yet simply because of their age. Generational differences can cause tension at times, but the truth is that wisdom can be attained at any age — you just need to be looking for it. At times, this requires more effort than we might like to admit.

It’s difficult to find wisdom nuggets in the modern-day media landscape. Part of this is because so much media is structured in the direction of entertainment rather than edification. The desire for fun, frivolity, and limitless indulging has grossly overtaken that of earnest self improvement in many cases.

These days, you truly have to fight to uncover wisdom; it won’t be waiting for you at every turn. There is some validity to the idea that wisdom takes time to obtain, grow, and share. However, as you pack your life full of experiences, relationships, choices, and goals, wisdom will slowly come knocking at your door. It’s simply your job to open the door when she does knock.

Despite some considering wisdom to be an impractical, “archaic” trait, wisdom remains as powerful as ever. If there were a way to hack the process of becoming wiser, would you want to utilize such a process? Such is the impetus for this post, a hand-picked collection of 33 quotes full of pure wisdom.

Wisdom regularly takes on different faces. It can be the teacher providing some stern insight during a moment of discipline, the diehard friend sharing encouragement during a time of sadness, or even the grandfather or grandmother offering sagacious observations about the choices in daily life. All of these are perfect analogs of some of the quotes you’ll see below.

Looking for that concise bit of truth? Have a friend who needs some power-packed encouragement? Are you simply a knowledge junkie who’s always on the hunt for pure wisdom? Wherever you find yourself this week, dive right into this quote collection and enjoy the wisdom within.

                                                                    Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

                                                                    Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

                                                                    So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

                                                                    Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    Video Summary

                                                                    1. It is easier.

                                                                    When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

                                                                    2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

                                                                    Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

                                                                    3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

                                                                    Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

                                                                    4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                      If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

                                                                      5. It could lead to better sleep.

                                                                      Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

                                                                      6. It can help your skin.

                                                                      For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

                                                                      7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

                                                                      Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

                                                                      Advertising

                                                                      8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

                                                                      Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

                                                                      9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

                                                                      For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

                                                                      10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                                                                        Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                                                                        Advertising

                                                                        Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                                                                        Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                                                                        Sleep well with your naked body!

                                                                        With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                                                                        Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!

                                                                        If you’re looking for more tips to sleep well and get up feeling energetic, I recommend you to check out this guide:
