Q DO YOU WALK AROUND NAKED AT HOME?
Some people have chilly homes, sure. ‘But those who don’t walk around naked alone probably have some internal shame that makes it unpleasant for them to be in their own body,’ says Dr Silver. This negative self-image can happen, she explains, because when we look in the mirror, we hone in on bits we don’t like. The remedy? Take an objective look at your body, naked if you can – but clothed if that’s too much. ‘Describe what each part looks like. State the facts rather than offering judgements. Repeat this a few times a week, adding positive observations when you’re ready,’ Dr Silver recommends.
