Besides showering, skinny dipping and having sexual relations, the next most notable non-nudist naked activities seem to be cooking and sleeping. No wonder; these are certainly pleasurable everyday activities! At any time we may simply be: tired of clothes, want to mix things up, be too hot, or just want to live on the edge! Any existential motive imaginable may lead someone to getting naked in the kitchen or in the bedroom! So... is this a divide between the true nudist and the closeted or "under-cover" nudist?! Or is it simply a lifestyle preference?! You decide.
Do you Enjoy sleeping Naked because it's Good for you?! There are numerous proponents of sleeping in the nude in particular vs. straight up nudity in general. One of the benefits toted by Katie Bingham Smith on "Scary Mommy" is skin to skin contact. Sure, this is great thing! I totally buy into touch as a bonding behavior as advocated by novelist and sex educator Marnia Robinson. Nonetheless, total nudity is not required! One could sleep in undies and have plenty' o skin contact.
Other authors indicate going nude at certain times could be part of a healthy lifestyle. Lindsay Kellner writes on Mind Body Green Lifestyle
Even if your nude experience is a bit more reluctant at first, like mine was, you'll learn something about yourself.
While she does not cite any full on nudist lifestyle, she does seem to promote common sense when it comes to health. If being naked is good for you at certain times, just do it!
So... full disclosure I consider myself a Naturist/Nudist (and not the other way around.. haha), yet I very frequently sleep clothed! Sure, sleeping naked on a hot summer night is a must, but I simply prefer the habit of sleeping tight as a bug in a rug! I am much more likely to cook breakfast naked, even if that means frying up some fatty foods (ex, bacon, potatoes, eggs)!
They say don't cook bacon naked, but like with anything, the greater the risk the greater the reward. Cook at a low splatter temp and use a pan or pot with a high sidewall. Dancing a safe distance away from the hot bubbling pan is worth it. Jam some tunes and wake up right! That's my own personal habit. Maybe you prefer to don the apron like the Bear Naked Chef Adrian De Berardinis! How do you get your Nude fix?!
What would you rather do Naked?! Believing what you are doing is healthy has a huge play in how you feel, how healthy you are and how regularly you do it! So wether you love to be nude in the shower, under the covers, at the fry-pan or welding a bumper, keep a positive attitude! And keep all of your skin intact so you can feel those gentle breezes and lush satin sheets; appreciating our sensory experiences in the moment is the Best!
