Most bucket lists include epic road trips, a jumbotron appearance at a sporting event, or visiting Paris.

But to truly feel liberated, mindful master Kelly Morris wants you to get naked…in water. Yes, we’re talking skinny dipping.

“I like to head to the beach on full moons, strip down to nada, and dive in,” she says. “Taking in [the moon’s] silvery glow is especially healing for women—it allows our special connection to nature to become more evident, more felt.”

Not ready to peel off that cute, sporty suit? Keep it on and go for a late-night swim—bonus points if it happens during a full moon. And if you’re not near a body of water (and don’t have a friend who would let you use her pool), good news: other fully dressed options work, too. “Forest bathing, moon bathing, sun bathing…they’re all good, all the time,” Morris insists.

And once you check this off your bucket list, maybe a backpacking adventure is next?
