What 4 Days of Nakedness Taught Me About What We Hide Behind

​I’ve just come home from a gorgeous weekend away with my girlfriends and I’d like to share with you what I took away from spending the entire weekend naked sunbathing and it’s not white bits.

I think stripping naked is good for the soul, physically and spiritually. I’m a bit of a hippy like that. If you think about it, when do you ever spend the whole day naked? Like never. So, trust me that when you do and then you go to put your clothes on, it makes you feel really restricted. What we also found was that the more comfortable we were exposing ourselves (that doesn't feel like the right word lol) literally the more open we were baring our souls.

Now, you may think nothing of this but being a trained Life Coach, of course I had to take this deeper.

It left me thinking, what else do we hide behind that if removed for 24hrs would liberate us to the point of no return? It takes bravery to remove your layers because it exposes the naked truth, however once you discover the sense of freedom from no longer needing to hide, picking those layers back up seems unnatural.

Here are the 10 most common things I think we choose to hide behind; I've been victim to number 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9 & 10, what about you?

1. Job title

2. Up bringing

3. Partner

4. Financial Status

5. Intellect

6. Children

7. Beliefs

8. Education

9. Material possessions

10. Personal style

Hey, I'm Lydia Kimmerling I am MAD, CRAZY, PASSIONATE about helping you to create a life you're super excited to wake up to. Being happy...ish, inspired...ish and fulfilled...ish is never quite enough, is it? When you feel like there is "more" out there for you, it's because there is. A life where you can't remember the last time you worried, stressed or doubted yourself and your friends ask you "What's your secret?" because you GLOW, SPARKLE and SHINE. That can be you and I will show you how. I got my first television job at 17, ran my own restaurant in Panama at 22, taught Hip Hop in Cornwall at 26, was cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic at 28, coached CEO's on confidence at 29, then at 30 took the leap as a certified life & business coach with The International Coaching Federation to launch my very own transformational company called The Happiness Explorer. I am a master of change, so I can tell you that there is NEVER really anything to fear, but has it always been easy? NO! I have blocks, down days and self-doubt too, life doesn't stop throwing you curve balls, it's how you catch the ball and throw it back that changes. Plus, you never know until you try, right? At 32, I now know what the key is to waking up every single day excited about the life you live. It is to know yourself inside and out and to love every part of who you are.The more you know yourself, the more of you there is to love and the more you love yourself, the more you want to give yourself a life you love. The question is…What do you really want?
