As the Northern Hemisphere is heading to Autumn, the temperatures are slowly decreasing and may go below a threshold where we cannot be comfortably naked. Well, this is what common sense would dictate. However, even in winter, even if we need to heat our house a few degrees less to decrease our carbon footprint and cope with rising energy pricing, we can still enjoy nudism, both inside and outside. Yes, contrary to popular belief, even by seasoned nudists and naturists, you can enjoy naturism and nudism all year long. Here are 8 tips to do so, particularly when getting and staying naked may prove difficult due to colder temperatures.
1. Get Used to Cold
This is probably going to surprise you, but you can support much colder temperature than you imagine. It depends on what you’re doing and to what degree you are cold averse. I often run naked outside while it’s less than 10 degrees Celsius and work indoor while the temperature is close to 19 degrees. Over the years, my body has adapted to colder temperature. Of course, I won’t be able to support cold for a long period of time, particularly if I’m not moving. However, you can push your own limits by challenging yourself to expose your naked body to cold temperatures for a few minutes.
For instance, I often go for a short walk in the garden in the morning, while the temperature sometimes is closed to freezing. It feels really cold the first few seconds, particularly when you’re coming from a warm indoor, but if you move with confidence and walk briskly, you will get used to the cold and will find the exercise invigorating. When it’s really cold, wear gloves, warm shoes and a woolly hat, it makes a big difference and you can stay naked outside longer. When I run naked in winter, I always wear gloves and a hat.
A great way to get used to the cold is to go for naked hike in winter. Pick a day without wind and some sun. Start clothed and walk fast. After a few minutes, peel one piece of clothing and put it into your backpack. Continue every time you feel a little bit warmer until you’re fully naked, with just your shoes, gloves and hat. Generally, you can get naked in 10 to 15 minutes and stay naked the remaining of the hike as long as you keep walking at a steady fast pace. One key aspect to nudism in winter is to protect the head, the feet and the hands. The rest of the body can be bare while being really comfortable. Anyhow, nudity is the most comfortable outfit when you start sweating.
So jump in the cold, a few seconds at a time and e …
