So, you want to own your bare confidence, huh? Well, you’ve come to the right place. But before we launch into ways to improve your body confidence, let’s make one thing clear upfront: The journey to self-love and body confidence isn’t always linear, and no one says it has to be.
Showing ourselves compassion at any point is worth a round of applause, so let’s not pressure ourselves to feel confident in our bodies 100% of the time. We all have those days, but what’s important is that you’ve made a choice to start owning your body and nudity today and every day going forward. So when you feel your confidence plummet, or if you’re just embarking on your journey to bare confidence, here are some ways to start owning your body and nudity today:
1. Treat your body well.
You don’t have to be wealthy or the most beautiful person by society’s standards to take care of your body. It’s you who gives yourself permission to take care of yourself, so do it. Give yourself at-home massages, or practice deep stretches. Or even treat yourself to a nice home-cooked meal. Because each time you take care of your body, you’re sending it signals and messages that say your body is deserving of good things and love.
2. Embrace your nudes.
Now it’s time to channel your innermost fiercest self and step outside of your comfort zone. Snap some selfies and photos just for you that make you feel good about yourself. Revel in the fact that these photos are for your eyes only, and admire what you see in your pictures. It might be uncomfortable at first, but the pictures can remind you how pleasing your body is when you may forget!
3. Talk the talk.
Words have power, so let’s be careful what we speak out loud and internally. It’s easy to let negative thoughts go unchecked, but to own your body and nudity, you’ll have to learn how to combat these thoughts with positivity. You’re the ruler over your own body, right? So, don’t let anyone, even yourself, walk over you. Instead, build yourself up with the power of positive speech and affirmations.
4. Get naked more.
The only way to get comfortable doing something is by doing it more often. So, when you’re in a comfortable space, have fun being naked solo. Take a bath, dance around, or just carry on your day naked. And remember, you’re the only one that needs to validate your worth nude. Embrace that bare confidence!
5. Join a nudist social network.
What better way to learn how to own your body and nudity than from other nudists? Tap into your bare confidence by engaging with a community of like-minded people that care about empowerment, respect, and the beauty of the human body. If you’d like a safe space to express yourself, Perzik exists to provide you with just that. So learn more about the Perzik app here, and embark on your journey to owning your body and nudity today.
