Are nudists and naturists happier than the rest of the world?
Are they more connected with Nature and does that deep connection gives them
different (even better) understanding of themselves?
I am thinking about it for some time now. Since the beginning of my naked journey, my life has changed
to better without any doubt. But the questions are why and how naturism/nudism changed my life?
Taking care of my body
The most obvious thing that changed in my life is that I started to spend any time that I can, being naked. And the more time I was spending naked the more I was paying attention to my body. I started to treat my body as my temple, as my home. I started to appreciate my own body. It was not, and it is not a perfect body, but it is the only I have and I can’t get a new one. If I want it to be healthier, if I want it to look better I have to work on it, take care of it.
Before my nudist journey, I was taking my body for granted. Wasn’t eating good, wasn’t working out at all… All I have done for my body was to wash it and use body lotion twice a year (if I even had remembered).
From becoming a naturist a treat my body with respect as it deserves. And I do it from the inside and outside. I eat much healthier. Of course, I still eat pizza, ice cream, and chocolate. And I still enjoy a glass or two of good wine or beer. But, at the same time, I eat lots of fruit, vegetables, and all the healthy food. I rather choose dark chocolate and some nuts than pink candy. I work out regularly. Relax my body with sauna and massage. Use body lotion daily…. My body is thankful for that.
Taking care of my mind
With changes on my body, with naturism also came changes in my mind.
First of all, I become more connected with myself. I started to understand myself more than ever. I have become more positive about myself in every aspect. Before that, body-positivity was just a myth for me. Now, I love myself, and I have more confidence in myself like never before.
More changes happened inside me. I understand my reactions better. I know how will I react in certain situations. Sometimes I wish I can control myself better, but at the end of the day, I am aware that I am deeply emotional. But I understand relation with every situation, every emotion, and my reaction and am grateful for that.
How did naturism help me with this?
Simply, by spending time nude, in nature, with myself I learned so much about me. By spending time nude with other people I have learned even more.
Connecting with nature
I always was a nature lover. Always enjoyed spending time in nature. Becoming a naturist/nudist only multiplied my connection and love to nature. It is hard to explain if you haven’t felt it by yourself. That special feeling of freedom when you are one with nature. When you are completely naked and feel the Mother Earth with your entire body. Standing barefoot on the green grass, rocks, in the mud or snow. Letting wind to touch your skin. Being touched by the sun. Dive deep in the water… It is remarkable. Hard to describe and at the same time so right and special.
Yes. Naturism and nudism equal happiness. In every way, you can think of.
