“Living Life Differently”
Being a naturist is first and foremost about wanting to rediscover a harmonious relationship with nature and its elements: water, air, sun and earth. It promotes well-being and freedom of body and mind in an environment specially designed for naked living.The naturist style nudity disproves the rumours spread about it, and in reality is far from the clichés of perversity with which some associate it. It promotes a healthy and communal return to humankind’s natural origins: living naked and in community to break down social barriers. It encourages you to explore and get to know your inner self and that of those around you,it also allows you to achieve fulfilment and a new-found freedom, making it easier for you to accept a body that is sometimes hard to live with.
Naturism is also a natural anti-stress therapy and when confronted with demanding and stressful lives, our bodies and especially our minds are often victims of all sorts of assault. By practicing open air nudity, letting the naturally naked body breath and choosing to free themselves from the tensions of life, naturists rediscover peace and well-being, enjoying these unique moments to focus once more on themselves… and on what is most important.
Far from the pressures of everyday life, naturists recharge their batteries and start to live again by allowing their skin to breathe. Beneficial for both body and mind, it is a real lifestyle choice inspiring greater tolerance, sociability and above all more sharing and listening. Based on fundamentally humane values, it is today attracting more and more followers. It allows everyone to expose themselves in full daylight, just as they are, without judgement.
This communal nudity breaks down barriers and helps people accept not only themselves but others as well. It is a great lesson in tolerance and personal development as well. By disposing of social backgrounds, this new way of life helps create a new mind-set based on tolerance and personal development, allowing children to grow up differently in a healthy and convivial environment that is free from judgement.
It is considered a good life lesson for some, naturism is mostly practiced by families with children, on a family holiday amongst several generations in a naturist environment. Soon to become young adults, teenagers are confident and happy having grown up with these liberating principles which teach them to be open-minded, respectful of others and of themselves, as well as curious and creative.
Living in harmony with nature is important to all naturists in simply being at one with the elements, learning to accept and love yourself as you are far from the demands of society, as well as taking care to protect the environment for future generations by adopting a fundamentally ecological attitude… this is what drives a unifying movement creating happiness.
