The evolution of the Naked and Happy blog

You may have noticed a few changes of my blog over the last weeks. It’s the beginning of an evolution that will span many months to come. It all started with the change of hoster to Dreamhost (a real dream hoster). This allows more flexibility in customization and ads (do let me know if ads are too annoying for reading the blog, as they just should be there to help monetize the blog without being a nuisance). The site theme will evolve over the course of the year to reach the level of minimalism I want to reach, by balancing images, text and space. More evolutions to come.

Naturism, wellness, and happiness!

Change continued with the tag line: Naturism, wellness, and happiness! Naturism is all about communal nudity and respect to the environment. It helps body acceptance and body consciousness. I feel it helped me a lot in choosing a healthier lifestyle and increasing my overall happiness. As I was thinking of sharing more of my learnings about wellness, stirring this blog toward this theme became obvious.

The Student Health and Counselling service of UC Davis provides an interesting definition of Wellness:

“Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.”

Most noteworthy, health and fulfillment resonate with many people, wanting to live a happy life. Change and growth are necessary to reach and keep health and fulfillment.

The National Wellness Institute goes deeper by providing the following three pieces of what wellness is:

  • Wellness is a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential.
  • Wellness is multidimensional and holistic, encompassing lifestyle, mental and spiritual well-being, and the environment.
  • Wellness is positive and affirming.

Also, it provides the six dimensions of wellness that I found very interesting to create a road map to enhance life and grow as an individual:

In addition, you can download A PDF document that describes in more details those six dimensions and how they relate to each other here. Wellness and naturism go together. Naturism can be a major contributor on the journey to wellness, in all six dimensions, as we will see in future posts.

Naturism, diversity, and inclusion!

Finally, change will come with partnerships with other bloggers and affiliates. This will allow to increase reach and enable a network of complementary points of view about naturism, nudism and nude activities. If naturism and nudism will be the central theme of those partnerships, diversity and inclusion will be essentials to embrace the richness of the human beings and of the experience shared nudity brings to those relationships.

Of course, there will be other changes along the months to come. I am currently going through curating all the posts to keep only the best ones and add some corrections. I hope that you will continue to contribute to the success of this blog by sharing your comments and experiences.

Finally, to close on the forthcoming changes, here’s the International Naturist Federation definition of naturism:

“Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature characterized by the practice of communal nudity with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment”.

The notions of community and respect are key in this definition. They will join naturism, diversity, and inclusion as the main characteristics of the site. I hope you will find this evolution positive and that it will resonate well with your personal aspirations. I look forward to reading your comments and feedback to make this site even better.

Get naked, stay naked, live naked, and share the naked love!
