Be Comfortable Naked
By Andre Lafome
Get used to being naked when you are alone. Sometimes being naked and just hanging around the house can feel weird. And if you put something on, you feel more comfortable. Well, how can you be comfortable naked around someone else if you can’t be when you’re alone?
Immersing oneself is the best way to get used to something or get over fears. Humans are creatures of habit. Once you feel comfortable being naked by yourself or around others it becomes difficult to go back to the way you used to feel. Depending on how much you wear when at home will determine where you need to start. If you are fully clothed all the time, including socks, you may want or need to start slowly.
Start off by no longer wearing socks at home. As soon as you get home, kick off those shoes and take off your socks. You would be surprised how many people are embarrassed by their feet and don’t like to be barefoot around others. If you can’t comfortably be barefoot around people then being naked will take some time and work, but you must work at anything you really want.
Little By Little
Slowly getting used to being naked little by little is the best way to make this new habit stick. Start by doing whatever you do around the house with less clothes on. Try being topless most if not all of the time. A long time ago I was never comfortable at home without a shirt on. Now I am not comfortable unless I have no shirt.
Try wearing more revealing bottoms
If you wear pajama pants when at home, then wear shorts. If you wear shorts then wear underwear or lingerie. Eventually you will get to the point where you go completely naked.
Tip for women
If you just can’t get yourself to walk around the house topless or bottomless try this. Wear a sheer night shirt or bra and panty set. You may feel protected by the feeling of still having clothes on, but they really aren’t hiding anything. Your partner will also get some enjoyment from seeing you like this.
Just a minute
Try spending at least a few minutes a day doing normal things around the house without any clothes on. Watch TV, read a book on the sofa, wash dishes, even sweep the floor. You can then get somewhat dressed if you want to. Try extending the amount of time you spend being comfortably naked.
Of course no one expects you to be naked all the time. The goal is to get to the point where it doesn’t feel weird or uncomfortable not having any clothes on.
It feels like it’s easier to be naked around someone if you feel you look good. It is. But you don’t have to be perfect to look good. Exercise helps tone up the body. Find an exercise program that you like to do or you won’t stick to it. And if you ask someone if you look good and they say yes, believe them. Don’t think negative and say to yourself they are just being nice. Think to yourself something like “that’s right, I’m hot. ”
It doesn’t matter if you have no one coming over to spend the night. Being groomed and looking good helps make you feel great about yourself. Plus, you never know when you might get a call that they want to come over. Men get a haircut, women get your hair done. Pedicures, manicures, shaving, trimming, and makeup. These are all things people can use to help look more attractive to themselves and to others.
Living with other people
Ok, you don’t live alone and can’t just walk around naked. You can try locking your bedroom door and do these same tips. You will just have to put something on before leaving your room. How about sleeping naked? You may find it is so comfortable and never want to sleep with clothes on ever again.
If you take a shower and get dressed in the bathroom, try just wrapping yourself in a towel and getting dressed in your bedroom. If you have a roommate of the same sex then some things can still be done in their presence. If you’re a woman how does your roommate walk around? Copy her. Talk to her about this article. Maybe you can work on it together.
