Get Naked, More Often
(OOC via MindBodyGreen.com)
We came across this piece at one of our new favorite sites, mindbodygreen.com. The author's premise is that to escape our own body dysmorphia and dissatisfactions – we should be naked more often. But as he makes clear, not necessarily in front of other people (unless you and they choose to).
The reason this struck a chord with us here is that we watch our 5 and 6 yo kids run around naked all the time…totally carefree and free of inhibition, insecurity, judgment, and self-consciousness. And as we watch them, we wonder when this will change; why it will change; if it has to change…
What do you think? Can being naked help you embrace you as you are and maybe help diminish body image issues? And, tangentially, how often and where are you naked? Is it just the shower and bed? Are you a nudist or ever thought about doing the nudist thing. Come on, let's speak our naked truths and see if we can feel more better.
