World Naked Gardening Day 2019 Celebration: Time to Undress and Get ‘Dirty’ on First Saturday of May!
World Naked Gardening Day (WNDG) will be celebrated on May 4, 2019. Yes, there is a day dedicated to passionate gardeners and non-gardeners who love to trim bushes and hedgerows. Founded by Nude & Natural magazine consulting editor Mike Storey and Jacob Gabriel, the international day is aimed at body positivity and naturist (nudist) lifestyle. The first World Naked Gardening Day was held on September 10, 2005. However, the first Saturday of May was adopted as the date of this quirky and bizarre celebration. Enthusiasts enjoy their time gardening naked and sharing photos with the hashtag, #worldnakedgardeningday.
A lot of people choose to sleep naked simply because they find it more comfortable. But sleeping with nothing on has science-based health benefits, and, on the contrary, can cause your trouble you probably didn’t know about.
A survey of 1,500 people aged 25 to 55 in six different countries showed that only 30% of us sleep naked and the rest prefer to stay in their underwear or in some comfortable pajamas. One of the most obvious reasons to sleep with no clothes on is to get deeper shut-eye.
Sleeping naked is a good way to keep your skin cool without changing the temperature of your bedroom. By skipping on the sleepwear, you give your body, especially the parts that tend to sweat more than others (like your feet and privates), a chance to breathe.
A woman’s genitalia can be an ideal breeding ground for fungi and bacteria. Sleeping nude helps keep this area cool, dry, and ventilated, reducing the risk of developing a UTI or a yeast infection. For men, tight-fitting underwear overheats the testes and can affect semen quality and reproductive health.
A lot of people, women in particular, usually feel self-conscious about their bodies, even if the supposed “flaws” they have aren’t actually there! When you embrace your body just the way it is, you exude confidence in whatever clothing you decide to put on it.
If we get overheated at night, our stress hormone levels stay high. Plus, our human growth hormone that’s responsible for cell-renewal isn’t released at all. So your body panics and chooses to store fat instead of burning it.
If you’re among the 3% of people that sleepwalk, don’t throw away your pj’s! There have been tons of cases where naked sleepwalkers had problems with their neighbors and even law enforcement. If your skin is really sensitive, sleeping naked isn’t for you either.
Never forget that a good night’s sleep is essential for your health and well-being.
Driving further towards Cadiz, nudists also have their space at Estepona, Playa Arroyo Vaquero Costa Natura. The beach is quite narrow, but more than three kilometres long and even in the summer not overrun. The the residential buildings behind it do not limit nude bathing. Chiringuitos, sunbeds, litter bins, showers and regular beach cleaning ensure a pleasant stay, and signs clarify that the nude bathing paradise is limited to some 300 metres. This area stretches alongside the naturist hotel complex Costa Natura (www.costanaturastudios.com), which is also open to non-resident customers. To get to Playa Arroyo Vaquero, exit the N-340 about one kilometre before Estepona, following the sign at a roundabout. There are several free and guarded car parks belonging to the hotel complex. This nudist spot is very popular with international naturists.
