On the health benefits of being naked

It’s easy to find an article on the health benefits of being naked. After a short Internet search you will be informed of the following.

Sleeping in the nude can “aid you in getting a better night’s sleep”.

  • Sleeping naked allows you to “reach an optimal temperature” “between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit” (15 and 19 degrees Celsius);
  • “sleeping nude can help decrease stress”.

Avoiding “restrictive clothing and undergarments” is great for healthy skin.

  • Restrictive clothing “often leave indentations and marks all over our bodies” and lead to “drying and wrinkling of the skin”;
  • “wearing restrictive clothing can cause excessive sweating which may lead to inflammation of the skin follicles, rashes and breakouts”;
  • going bare helps to eliminate “sweat toxins that clothing can reintroduce to the body and better overall blood circulation”.

“Taking your nudity outdoors” increases your immune system.

  • Outdoor nudity not only “boosts your vitamin D intake and your mood”, but “also it can help improve your circulation, and detoxify the skin”;
  • researchers have found out “that our bodies are better at absorbing Vitamin D from sunlight than supplements, and while exposing your skin to the sun for too long can have serious consequences, the dose of sunshine you get if you sneak outside for 10-15 minutes will be the best natural mood booster”.

There’s an important “mental component to embracing your nude body“.

  • “Spending time in the nude is a great way to get in touch with your body”;
  • “being in the nude reduces shame”;
  • “spending more time naked improved your self-esteem and decreased body image dissatisfaction”;
  • “since it’s typically harder to spend time in your birthday suit as you go about your day” you can “try making it a habit as you’re getting ready to hit the sheets so you can get your daily dose of nudity-induced confidence”. [1,2]

It is also claimed that:

  • when you stay naked you burn more fat;
  • being naked more often saves on buying new clothing;
  • spending more time naked will allow you to feel better in your clothes;
  • appearing naked in front of others will show the world the real you;
  • being nude is fun [3].

Reading such texts, with mentions of the latest scientific studies, can go on almost indefinitely. What is more important is personal experience. I was sick for several months and finally broke up with the virus disease only after I was able to drop my clothes. I have no doubt that being naked is exceptionally good for my health. I have made it my habit to remain naked indoors for as long as possible (during the warm season especially). I am no longer ashamed of my nakedness and I have almost stopped blushing painfully when someone sees me completely naked.

Right now I see only one problem. It would be really nice to find a way to spend more time in my birthday suit outdoors as I go about my day. Among other things, this will seriously reduce my clothing expenses.
