The health benefits of naturism can never ever be underdone or to put it another way the pros far outweigh the cons. As I approach my 50th birthday my life has changed dramatically since I turned 45 and it all seems a world away from the way my life was in my 20’s and 30’s.I’ve never been the type of person that believes life is set in stone and never changes, neither do I believe there is a template to life that everyone follows religiously. When I was young the sun always shone or so it seemed and people never seemed to have a care in the world. Once I got in a serious relationship things changed, I saw less of my closest friends and things seemed to change all-round in a serious kind of way. Living in the south east brings its problems as house prices rose and people I’d known all my life suddenly started moving further and further afield.
Marriage and Children changed life further still and suddenly as I reached 40 suddenly you realise you’re not young anymore. The thing you notice at this stage of your life more than anything is the fact that you/people don’t live happily ever after. People get terrible illnesses, people die, people change and are not the same as they once were and also that a lot of people only really look after themselves. So I’d reached 40, one of my children got cancer, my father died, people moved away, never to be heard of again and my marriage ended in separation. All in all I coped well, but the increasing pressures of not seeing the children,having to sell a business and a house brought things to a head. Ginny was a treasure and without her I don’t know what I’d have done, so when I mentioned naturism to her, I was pleased when she said she’d dip her toe in the water. Camping naked, living naked and visiting the naturist beaches we have, have enabled me to unwind from the terrible stresses and slowly, slowly plot a different course in life.
Along with a shift to the naked lifestyle (when weather permits) has also come a new love of mother nature, a new found hobby – Photography and a more responsible attitude towards the planet and other human beings. You step off the treadmill and start to think for yourself, rather than going along with everyone else. Naturism has in its own way helped me grow up and now with my 50th birthday approaching, I don’t fear getting old or even eventually dying, why because along with naturism it just all seems so natural.
