No more second thoughts on how to spend your holidays wisely – go outdoor camping!
Whatever the time of year, modern life can make us feel stressed and disconnected from the ones we love and we can only think of going on a vacation to unwind. We often think and plan on how to spend our holidays or vacation ahead of time. While some of us prefer to stay at home, some of us prefer to have some outdoor adventure. Sometimes, we disregard the thought of camping as the best way to spend our holidays as we are afraid of going out of our comfort zone. All we can think was camping is not easy, that it will be a hassle, that there are more ways to spend our holidays. But do we ever think of the benefits that camping will give us?
Here are some reasons why we should consider camping:
“Camping is good for the soul.”
It may sound so cliche but going out and being one with nature will help us recharge, cleanse our well-being and improve our mental and emotional strength. Some studies say that camping will improve our mood, refine our sleep cycle, and even help with how we think of the world. We all know that one of the biggest health struggle we face today is stress and camping is a great way to reduce stress and to relax, a way you can’t find anywhere else.
“Camping helps with relationship building.”
We don’t get much time to spend with our loved ones because some of us are busy with work while some are busy with school. Camping is the best way to catch up with them and get a chance to talk even late into the night. It helps strengthen our relationships with others as we only focus on them without any distractions from work or school. For sure we will all return home feeling much stronger as a group.
“Fitness and Health.”
Fresh air. We may not realize how important fresh air is unless we go outside camping. The wonderful scent of the woods, there’s not much like it, especially in the city. Far from some of the exercise routines we all use on doing while at home, camping time is physical time. We can’t help it but to engage in physical activities that will help us improve our physical strength.
“Experience great food.”
Food tastes way better when prepared outdoors. There’s something about the camping food that we will never taste in any home-cooked meals. (We must don’t forget to bring marshmallows and cook it on our campfire)
Unplugging in the world of technology. We must go back to the time where we don’t need gadgets to live in our daily lives. We all know that phones are a necessity nowadays but even just for a few days, we must consider reconnecting ourselves to the life of no gadgets. (Set up a “No Gadgets” rule)
“Develop new skills.”
We must set up everything from scratch when we go camping. There are important skills that we can’t learn in our regular daily lives. We may learn how to set up tents, start fires, cook a new dish and many more.
These are just some benefits we can achieve when we go camping.
