A good night’s sleep is just about the best “hack” we know of to help you function better as a human being. Doctors recommend a minimum of seven hours a night, and the average American isn’t even reaching the bare minimum, with fully one in three of them chronically under-rested, according to the CDC.
RELATED: How to Get Better Sleep
There’s plenty of behavioral changes you can make to help yourself get better sleep, from cutting down on caffeine consumption to using blue-light-blocking glasses when viewing screens in the evening, but one very overlooked area for improvement is sleepwear. If you’re accustomed to just putting on an old t-shirt and boxers, you’re doing it wrong.
The right sleepwear will help keep you cool during the warmer months and warm during the cooler months. It will regulate your body temperature, minimize or eliminate itching or discomfort, and give you the feeling of coziness you need to let your mind shut down for the night. Even something as simple as the ritual of putting on your pajamas will help you signal to your mind that the day is done with and it’s time to prepare for sleep.
There are no shortage of pajamas for men, but they’re not all built to the same standards of design and quality. To help you find the perfect pair for your needs, we’ve scoured the Internet to find some of the most comfortable and stylish pajama sets for guys.
