Nudity. It’s something that all humans have to face head on, but also something that many humans are totally uncomfortable with. Statistics state that only 29% of women are happy with their naked bodies, and this ranges from a whole host of insecurities and confidence issues. It's time to find ways to start loving your naked body today.
Some of these ways to start loving your body may seem offbeat, but the point is, the more relaxed you are and the healthier you are, the easier it is going to be to deal with your perceived imperfections of hangups. Many other pieces of advice about loving your body focus on the physical, but these tips are for tackling some of the more psychological aspects.
If you are one of those people who hates to be naked, then here are some ways to start loving your naked body and be more comfortable with nudity.
1. What Does Your Body Need?
Stand in front of a mirror and ask yourself the question, "what does my body need?" Being open and honest with yourself, rather than just shutting down your confidence is a great place to start. If you notice that you’d like a slightly thinner waist or slightly tighter arms, then these are physical things that can be worked on to boost yourself self-esteem. Also, the added benefit of looking in the mirror often is that it will help you to become much more comfortable with your body, and you might even start to see that your fears were not as valid as you thought. Looking at yourself without any clothes is one of the easiest ways to start loving your naked body.
2. Set Boundaries
A lot of women often feel extremely vulnerable when naked, especially in a sexually intimate situation. A way to start to deal with this, stage by stage, is to set some boundaries with a partner, such as places where you want and do not want to be touched. As you become more comfortable in your "touch zones," you might find that you are willing to expand them and open other parts of yourself up to intimacy. Putting your whole self out there all at once can be daunting, but taking it step by step can give you a better sense of the beauty of your naked body.
3. Unleash Your Creativity
Search for things in life that allow you to demonstrate your creative side. When you are creative, it makes you feel really good, both emotionally and physically, and maintaining this attitude of positivity and wellbeing can make a really big difference in the way that you perceive your body. Do something creative that makes you feel good at least once a week.
4. Stay Hydrated
Drinking lots of water not only helps you to stay hydrated and healthy, but it can also help to relax you in ways that you might not have imagined. The more relaxed and content you feel about yourself, the more comfortable you are going to be in your own skin, and this can be a big step towards being more loving of your own body.
5. Get Plenty of Magnesium
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for a woman’s wellbeing yet it is not mentioned enough.

It helps relax your body and helps you sleep better. If your body has a good mineral balance and you sleep well, you’ll fret less about your imperfections.
