A SEASONED naturist told how he found the perfect cure for “pandemic stress” – jumping in muddy puddles as nature intended in his local woods.

Stripping down to his birthday suit, retail worker Chris Hood, 43, leapt through the soggy leaves with glee, as his photographer fiancée Ginny Jones, 41 – a fellow nudist – snapped his joyful antics for their album.

Letting it all hang out was the “best antidote ever” to pandemic anxiety, according to Chris, of Grimsby, north east Lincolnshire, who laughed: “It was really sloppy, muddy, wet and horrible.

“But immediately, I just took my shoes and socks off and was slopping in the mud with my bare feet.”

Covid-19 stress really hit home for Chris – who lives with Ginny, her son Ruben, six, and their daughter Violet, two – this summer when restrictions eased off and more people began buying from the shop where he worked.

Increasingly nervous in the crowded environment, instead of being his usual jolly self, he started experiencing mood swings and even had panic attacks.

So, deciding to make the most of nature on a day off in November, he went one step further by stripping off and jumping for joy completely naked in the mud, as Ginny caught his antics on film for posterity, .

He said: “The feeling of getting mud between my toes was just escapism and a complete relief.”

For Ginny and Chris, the pandemic followed hot on the heels of them launching a new business, Ginny’s Photography, in early 2020.

They joined forces to open a studio in Grimsby, as Ginny’s work had been going so well, only for them to have to shut up shop three weeks after their big launch, when the first UK lockdown began in March.

But for Chris, it was the easing of restrictions that caused the greatest anxiety, as his customer services job, which had been cut back to his minimum contracted hours, stepped up as it became busier.

  1. It’s great to see CHRIS and GINNY enjoying naked fun in their local wood. I also have been using a local woodland area for naked relaxation for several years now.Walking through woodlands is known to be quite therapeutic but to did it naked even more so.

    I recommend anyone who is stressed out, for what ever reason, to give it a try.
