Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature characterized by the practice of communal nudity with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment. The official definition of naturism, adopted by many naturist federations, is simple and eloquent in these times of climate change. By applying it to our daily life and being the apostle of our lifestyle to our loved ones, we can contribute to influencing public policy and actively contributing to the future of mankind. Here are four reasons.
By living naked and sharing nudity, one naturally makes him or herself vulnerable and shows him or herself as he or she is. A naturist is vulnerable to the other’s eyes and to his or her mockery. This is generally the result of a misunderstanding of what naturism is and of its countless benefits, shown in a study published in the Journal of Happiness.
This critical look also makes it possible to appreciate our physical body. By respecting each other, we’re to ask questions about our activities, our food, our clothes and their usefulness. Self-respect encourages you to exercise daily, to eat well and to consume goods with sobriety. Naturism and minimalism have many similarities.
Respect for Others
When you respect yourself, you learn to respect others. Nude, we no longer see other naturists through the image conveyed by the labels of their clothes, but by their behavior and their being. I’m always positively surprised by the simplicity and the atmosphere of camaraderie in naturist environments.
Naturists look at you in the eyes, because one don’t judge others’ breasts, belly or genitals. We look at each other directly in our soul. One appreciates all the more the scars that life has placed on our bodies. They’re a reflection of who we are.
