      …which may or may not magically turn into a pie.

      Did you know that it’s super easy to bake pumpkin seeds? They’re also super good for you. Plus, you can add any spices you want and they’ll taste awesome.

          Why does hay makes everything so great? Who knows. But take advantage anyway.

          So you can look like this guy:

                8. Watch horror movies

                At first you might be like…

                    10. Make a kick-ass Halloween costume

                    10

                      That’s the official term for looking at fall leaves. I looked it up.

                      11

                        12. Have a pumpkin spice latte

                        13

                          They’re good and you know it. Accept it.

                          12

                            Doesn’t it look like so much fun?

                            14. Eat candy. All of the candy.

                            Just because you’re not trick-or-treating anymore doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to have any.

                            14

                              15. Read in a cozy sweater by the fire

                              Because it’s just the best.

                              15

                                16

                                  Doesn’t that look amazing? Just don’t burn your friends.

                                  17. Tell ghost stories

                                  And relish the moment when your guy friend screams like a little girl.

                                  17

                                    18. Buy some new cardigans and sweaters

                                    Pro-tip: go to Salvation Army.

                                    18

                                      19. Go on a hike

                                      And try to be open-minded.

                                        Hogwarts style.

                                        20

                                          21. Throw a Halloween party

                                          They can be pretty sweet.

                                          21

                                            22. Go to a street fair

                                            Where you can buy some cotton candy and try to do this with it:

                                              23. Have some hot apple cider

                                              22

                                                Don’t be a Rainbow Dash.

                                                24. Burn fall-scented candles

                                                24

                                                  Go a little fall-er than Brittany, though.

                                                  25. Buy some flannel sheets

                                                  Advertising

                                                  25

                                                    26. Stargaze

                                                    27

                                                      Okay, so the stars never look like this. But whatever.

                                                      27. Watch the sunrise

                                                      sunrise

                                                        Get your butt out of bed and do it. You won’t regret it.

                                                        28. Get ready for Black Friday

                                                        It’s on sale?! BUY IT! Go crazy!

                                                        29

                                                          29. Snuggle with a special someone

                                                          30

                                                            All of the snuggles.

                                                            30. Show gratitude

                                                              Just because it’s not Thanksgiving quite yet doesn’t mean you shouldn’t remember how sweet your life is.

                                                              10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

                                                              10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

                                                              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!
