There are whole ranges of wonderful health benefits result from camping:-
1. CAMPING HELPS WITH PROBLEM SOLVING:
Sometimes camping and its associated activities present you with challeges.Often these are challenges that you don’t deal with on a daily basis. Whatever the case, new challenges and experiences keep your brain healthy, as they force you to think for yourself and creativity.
2. CAMPING IS GREAT FOR CHILDREN’S EDUCATION:
Following the above point, spending the night in a tent has a clear benefit for children. This is especially so in the modern age where many kids are more confident navigating their way around an ipad than they are navigating the inside of a tent.
Camping introduces children to a whole new world and asks of them an ability to overcome new problems and challenges. Having exposure to a different set of challenges not only keeps kids brains healthy but leads to increased learning opportunities.
A 2015UK study from the Institute of Education at Plymouth University found an overwhelming majority of parents believed that camping had a positive impact on a child education.
3. CAMPING HELPS YOU SLEEP BETTER:
There’s another important reason why camping is good for your health, and if you suffer from lack of sleep, you should be paying particular attention. Research in 2013 from the University of Colorado Boulder found that camping can re-set our biological clocks and help those of us who find it tough to get to sleep.
4. CAMPING INCREASES YOUR VITAMIN D INTAKE:
Camping provide you with the chance to spend more time in the sun. And more time catching those rays means extra vitamin D, which has benefits for bones. Sun exposure has also been linked to mental health benefits, such as improved moods. However direct sun exposure should be taken in moderation and adequate protection should be used to minimise the risk of skin cancer.
5. CAMPING LEADS TO INCREASED EXERCISE:
If you’re daily routine entails slaving away in an office or at home with the kids, chances are your opportunities to exercise are limited. The solution? Go camping. While camping, you will likely explore new surrounds; perhaps wandering through a nearby forest or even mountain climbing.
6. CAMPING MAKES YOU HAPPIER:
That’s right-camping goes along way to improving your mood. It’s all to do with serotonin, that wonderful chemical our body produces that helps to make us happy. We’ve already touched on some factors that help the body create serotonin: more sunlight, more oxygen, and increased physical activity. And when you are camping, you are likely to tick all these boxes.
