Let's get naked

Imagine rolling around naked in crisp, high thread count sheets. Picture bathing in natural springs, warm water surrounding you, bubbling against your skin. Envision basking in the sun with nothing between you and its warming rays.

It’s funny ... we wear our skin all the time, yet we rarely spend time enjoying it.

The truth is, most people don’t spend enough time naked. We’re naked in the shower. Some folks sleep naked. But, for the most part, that’s pretty much it. The result? We hardly even remember our skin, or, for that matter, that our bodies are even there.

And if we forget about our bodies, you can be sure our partners are likely to forget them too. The good news is it’s easy to slip back into your own skin. All you have to do is spend some time in it – and nothing else.

If you’re not a big fan of being naked, I hope you’ll just trust me on this one. It’s one of those the-more-you-do-it, the-more-you’ll-like-it things. And, before you know it, you’ll wonder why you spend so much time under wraps!

Here are some ways to up your naked quotient.

1. Get undressed in the bedroom – not the bathroom. No more slipping out of your clothes and stepping into the shower all in one fell swoop. Leave your clothes in your bedroom and use those few steps into the bathroom to feel the air on your skin. It will make the sensation of the water hitting you feel even better. And if you’re partner gets a sneak peek … well, even better!

2. Take baths instead of showers. You’ll find yourself looking at your body and tending to it more than in the shower. Partly just because it breaks you from your routine. It gives you a chance to be in your skin and it’s “safe” too. Nothing strange about lying around naked in the tub. Read more >>
