In our everyday lives we have a number of "recommended daily allowances" for a variety of things. The cereal box tells us how many mg's of iron, niacin, protein, and other essential vitamins and minerals we should consume. Experts advise at least eight hours of sleep per night. The fitness coach tells us to work out for at least an hour a day at least three days per week. Even the pastor advises to attend church at least once per week, to give a percentage of income, and to spend at least a half hour per day in prayer and bible study.
Well, the Platypus is a bit of an expert on things naked. We propose a recommended daily allowance of "naked time." Folks should spend at least ten hours per day in their birthday suit, and here's how that breaks down:
- Spend the eight hours a night sleeping naked. It is more comfortable. And it's documented that it helps your body regulate its own temperature better.
- The extra two hours of naked time per day leaves a few minutes to enjoy your morning coffee and news reading sans clothes. Don't forget that you'll be bathing / showering naked as part of your routine too.
- That leaves just over an hour later in the day to be sure to get in either sunbathing in the afternoon, doing light housework, going for a skinny dip, watching tv bare on the couch, you name it.
Of course, nothing says you can't spend MORE time naked each and every day. Some nudists live within parks and resorts where they go nude virtually 24 hours / day, 7 days per week except for occasional trips into town. We're talking minimums here.
So how about it? Are you getting your Platypus Recommended Daily Allowance of Naked?
