Take a 30-day challenge and change your life in a month

0c53c65458237e7668bbaf03e0135b4cIs nudism something you’ve always meant to try, wanted to experience, but just haven’t? Here’s a suggestion – Try it for 30 days.

It has been said that it only takes a month to create a new habit, introduce something new into your life that you will stick with or to break a bad habit for good. Doing any of those things has the power to change your life for the better.

It doesn’t require attempting a massive life altering experience like climbing Everest, going skydiving or sailing solo across the Pacific. It doesn’t require making a drastic lifestyle change to make a significant difference in your life. Long term positive change often comes from simply changing your perspective on life.

I’m an addict when it comes to TED Talks. TED is a nonprofit, global community that is committed to building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers, a community of curious souls sharing ideas with each other both online and at TED events around the world believing passionately in the power of ideas to positively change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world.

This article was inspired by a TED talk I saw recently where Google engineer Matt Cutts challenges people to try something new for 30 days. The video talk is embedded with the article for those interested in watching it. While there are lots of new things a person could try for 30 days, it occurred to me that trying nudism could truly be a rewarding experience for the uninitiated.

Borrowing then from Matt Cutts’ idea, I’m issuing here a challenge to those who have never spent any meaningful time nude or who may have not ever had a social nudity experience, to try it for just 30 days. It’s something I think could really change your life for the better in so many ways.

Taking up this challenge could be as simple as making it a goal to spend some amount of time nude every single day for 30 days and then following through. But how about raising the bar instead by setting some increasingly challenging goals to achieve over the course of a month? That could be a terrific approach for those who may regularly spend time nude at home but have never ventured outside into the world of social nudity. The sky is the literally limit when it comes to nude activities you might choose as your goals but here are a few to get your thinking started…

  • Do Some Exercise. Why exercise nude? Because everything is more fun when you do it naked! You could do some strength training, some cardio or even try some naked yoga. Clothing-optional yoga classes are popping up all over the US. You might find private practice a better bet – but attending a class is a great way to build body acceptance.
  • Do an Everyday Activity. Wash the dishes, do the vacuuming or you could even paint your bedroom while nude. Pick a bright, lively color for one wall. And then clean up afterward while nude the entire time. Just like exercise, even everyday chores that people usually do while clothed can feel so much less tedious when combined with nudity.
  • Visit the Beach. Swap your swimsuit for your birthday suit and go for skinny dip or work on your tan at a local nude beach. Even in Dallas, Texas, just a few hours south near Austin you can find a clothing-optional beach on the scenic shores of Lake Travis at Hippie Hollow Park.
  • Cycle. A decision to take part in the World Naked Bike Ride would be a great goal for anyone’s 30 day challenge. Billed as “the craziest, wildest, most insane event of the year” WNBR-affiliated events are held each year in more than 70 cities in 20 countries. The naked bike rides, which are actually “bare as you dare” affairs are held to protest and raise awareness about oil dependency and the pollution caused by the burning of fossil fuels. Visit the WNBR website to find an event near you. You can even sign up to start a new ride in your area if there isn’t one close by.
  • Ah, Skinny-dipping. Even if you don’t have a clothing-optional beach nearby, chances are there is a nudist or naturist resort or club close to home where you can shed you inhibitions along with your swimsuit and enjoy a relaxing skinny dip in a pool. Each July the American Association for Nude Recreation sponsors a Guinness Book of World Records Skinny Dip and encourages people all over the country to go skinny dipping at nudist resorts, clubs, beaches, public lands and backyards across North America and beyond. Check the AANR website for the current year and make it your goal to participate.
  • Go for a Run. Are you a runner or jogger? Nude running isn’t confined to streaking. If you enjoy running but have never tried in nothing but a pair of sneakers you are missing out on an amazing experience. All of the Dallas-area nudist resorts or clubs have plenty of places where you can enjoy a nude run. In fact, each year AANR-Southwest sponsors its Nude Racing Series, a string of 5K races held at five participating regional clubs that begins in April and runs through September. Check out the Nude Racing Series Schedule to find a 5K race or two near you.
  • Sunbathe. If you enjoy cultivating a great tan, what a difference there is between wearing even the skimpiest clothing and wearing nothing while sunbathing! After a few minutes of nude sunbathing it can seem as if the warmth of the sun feels like enormous hands gently caressing every inch of your body. Yes, we are all concerned about the effects of too much time in the sun, but in moderation and with the use of appropriate sun screen, sunbathing is a healthful activity and the best way to avoid Vitamin D deficiencies.

What I like about the whole 30-day nude challenge concept is that you can make a massive difference in your life without having to spend loads of money, travel long distances or wait until the time is right. The majority of the 30 day challenge ideas I’ve listed here can be done anywhere–some of them for as little as a few minutes a day.

Are you wearing clothes right now? Well, it’s not too late to change that. I encourage you to throw caution – and your clothing – to the wind and to indulge in a little quality au natural time by taking up the 30 day nude challenge. I’m all for a bit of nudity promotion as everything is more fun in the buff, except perhaps snow skiing or dinner with the in-laws. So, don’t be shy. Take on the challenge, make a plan and find time to get naked for 30 straight days.
