The phrase ‘in all your glory’ was coined for a reason.
This may sound taboo, but it doesn’t have to be. As the March/April 2017 issue of “Playboy” proclaims, naked is normal! Not only is baring your skin natural, but going nude is also rich in both psychological and biological benefits. Letting it all hang out is not easy for everyone, but with enough practice, being naked becomes second nature, in addition to first. Everyone was born naked, so why not live naked?
An online survey conducted by Dr. Keon West found that people who spent more time nude had higher self-esteem. This makes sense, since people who wear skimpier swimsuits are assumably very comfortable with their bodies, and rocking nothing at all takes an incredible amount of security. Leaving yourself uncovered allows you to become more comfortable in your own skin, which is what brings about body positivity. Since everything is exposed, the person in the buff is bound to see themselves, and the more someone looks at anything, the more used to it they become; they can even learn to appreciate it. Of course, satisfaction with one’s weight takes time, but disrobing may help speed up the process.
Being naked more often can also help people look better naked. Not wearing clothes stimulates the growth of brown adipose tissue—also known as “good fat”—and decreases the amount of white adipose tissue, which is the unhealthy fat. Going au naturel also lowers cortisol, which is a stress hormone that enables weight gain. In addition to its weight loss effects, being unclothed helps with the appearance and health of skin, since wearing sweaty clothes can cause rashes and can lead to vaginal infections. Having unclear skin can also lead to low self-esteem, which does not help in any area of life, especially those concerning the body.
Spending more time in your birthday suit helps your mind, body and your body’s performance. If someone loves their body, then they are likely to keep that confidence during sex. A survey done in 2014 discovered that a whopping 57 percent of people who slept naked reported satisfaction in their relationships. Given the results of this study, it is safe to say that if someone has a good relationship with their own body, it leads to a good relationship with someone else’s. But, like any relationship, a relationship with one’s physical self takes time.
Spending time undraped can be nerve-racking for many individuals, but there’s no need to worry; nudity can be done in baby steps. Personally, I eased my way into sleeping naked by sleeping topless first. The top half of the body is the less intimate half because it contains no sexual organs, which makes it easier to uncover. Of course, sleeping without a pajama top can still be unnerving, but there are ways to overcome the fear of being shirtless.
