There are so many benefits of camping, this list could go on and on. But beside the obvious ones, like family time, fresh air and bbq dinners, here are 6 reasons why camping is great for you!
1. Problem solving
There's nothing like a bit of problem solving to work those brain cells! And camping can, even in the best of times, present a whole range of tricky situations, including how and where to set up the tent.
2. Children's education
Spending a night in a tent introduces kids to a new orld of different experiences and can pose challenges to be solved. The exposure to new problems is great for children's learning and healthy brain development.
3. Better sleep
Camping can help reset our biological clocks which makes it easier to fall asleep at night and to wake up in the morning. Proper sleep is paramount to our well being, not to mention our mood. Sleep breeds happy campers!
4. Vitamin D intake
Camping gives you the opportunity to spend more time outside, which means soaking up those rays! Exposure to sunlight is the main source of Vitamin D for Australians, and essential to bone health. Sunshine is also linked to mental health benefits. Just make sure to keep exposure in moderation and use UV protection.
Most campgrounds, like ours, are located in stunning environments, leading to walks and explorations! Since camping improves mood and energy levels, you're also more likely to move around than you are just staying at home. Of course, exercise is also great for boosting both mental and physical health.
6. Increased happiness
As established in earlier points, camping leads to all kinds of health benefits thanks to increased sunlight, oxygen, exercise and serotonin. All of these factors help increasing levels of happiness.
