As I was running this morning, I had this idea sprouting in my mind that indeed nudism and social nudity are the answers to a better world. When I came back home and went into my daily meditation, three key reasons to this idea came to me:
- No shame and more respect. There is much less body shame, if any at all, among nudists. We are all the same, however different. It’s always really refreshing to be among nudists because you know from the get go they will not judge you if you are too thin, too fat, have scars, have a beer belly or six packs. There’s more respect among nudists for diversity and inclusion.
- Less laundry means less detergent and water usage. When you spend days naked, you do not need to wash clothes often. Therefore, you use less water and less detergent. Not a real bad idea for nature and mother earth.
- More nature conscious. Naked, you realize how fragile the human being, nature and earth are. Without any clothes you feel the sun, the wind and the air surrounding you in a total different way. You may actually feel unprotected, therefore more cautious. A great way to become more aware of our place in the world.
There are many other benefits to nudism, many having been described in numerous articles including You Should Get Naked More Often. It’s Good For You or Want Better Self-Confidence? Get Naked!. However, I like the ones above as good starting points for discussing with non naturists as well, as we want to expand our nudist and naturist friends circle. The more nudists, the better the world will be, IMHO!
