Nudity, liberate yourself a guide to feeling free

  • 2 minutes

@Shifaaz Shamoon

Liberate the body and leave the clothes behind. Nudity, here are tips on discovering your inner body and guidelines of where to go and what to do in New Zealand.

Did you know the word gymnasium comes from the Greek word “gymos,” which means naked. In the old Olympic games nude athletes competed in running, wrestling, and boxing. In Sparta, even the female athletes competed naked. Naked breaks down emotional walls and allows you to know how to be comfortable in your own skin. You’re invited to accept and love your body. For beginners there are a number of fun activities you can enjoy after you close those curtains.

  1. Sleeping naked. Studies show that sleeping naked is healthier for you. Sleeping naked is also a stress reliever, boosts your mental health by losing the pjs.
  2. Skinny dipping is my personal favourite. Whether it’s a lake or ocean, there’s no better feeling than floating in the water naked. The ultimate freedom when those waves are hugging, pampering, caressing your body.
  3. Write a Letter of Complaint. It’s an excellent mental stimulation without your clothes on. I can’t imagine a better way to get your point across.
  1. Nude gardening. May all your radishes swing free. Combine nature with naturism and see what you can grow. Watch out for the postman though.

Interesting Fact

Did you know there is NZ national nude gardening day?

  1. Naked Yoga at Home or join Naked Yoga class. Cool thing about it that you can really feel your form and boosts your body confidence. There are both unisex and coeducated classes available.
  2. Nude beach, the perfect choice. All in one place where you can enjoy the most. Sunbathe, swim, walk, read a book, throw a frisbee.
