Well, I'm back and it's positive news. Now I can enjoy the weekend, stress free. And naked, of course! Here's a great article in Mel magazine that corroborates the whole preference for stripping off the confinement.
Who knew there was an actual name for this, and a study! Researchers Hajo Adam and Adam Galinsky, say it's called "enclothed cognition." What we wear has a psychological effect. “We argue that just like physical experiences, the experience of wearing clothes triggers associated abstract concepts and their symbolic meanings. … When a piece of clothing is worn, it exerts an influence on the wearer’s psychological processes by activating associated abstract concepts.” Well, I don't think there's any real news to that.
Author Magdalene Taylor quotes a nudist, “Perhaps because you realize you have the opportunity and option to remove them,” says Steve, 54, a nudist in Boston. “[It’s] almost like peeling off the burden(s) of the day as you get to your comfort zone.”
And, “Clothes become uncomfortable the instant you put them on, and they become even more so as the day wears on,” says Bill, a dad based in Texas.
Have a terrific holiday weekend (for those in the U.S.).
