Vacation with a small budget - Why go on vacation with a tent | Camping


Camping holiday

"Nature always helps those who want to get ahead themselves." - Mateo Aleman

If you regularly prefer to camp in a tent over a hotel holiday, you'll reap dozens of significant health benefits.

Most people go on camping trips because they're tired of the city or simply want an adventure.

If you are passionate about cycling, hunting or any other outdoor activity, camping offers you a way to focus completely on a hobby for a few days without external distractions.

What you may not realise yet is that camping holidays can help you live a longer and healthier life.

Benefits of camping holidays:

 1. Fresh air

That happy feeling you get when you get to the camping area is not just in your head, it's due to the release of serotonin from the extra oxygen. Our bodies become more relaxed when there is more oxygen.

This is not the only benefit of sleeping in a tent. Research shows that spending some time outdoors can regulate our blood pressure, improve digestion and give our immune system a boost.

When you spend a few days outside, you get serious health benefits from the extra oxygen and low levels of pollutants.

 2. Social

Camping is like an amusement park, but if a friend or family member joins you, you will enjoy a unique experience together that will help you build a healthy and happy relationship.

According to research published in the American Journal of Public Health, socializing can extend your lifespan and delay memory problems. Also, in addition to the medical benefits, close relationships make life more fun.

 3. Improves mood

 Those who are used to camping holidays will often talk about being happy and having a good time for a few days after the holiday.

This is due to spending time outside in sunlight which regulates melatonin levels in the brain.

4. Less stress

Camping also allows you to reduce stress levels. Stress can negatively affect your life and health in almost every possible way.

Stress reduction is linked to increased oxygen levels, higher serotonin levels and better managed melatonin levels in the body, information presented above.

 5. Fun exercise

Let's not forget the most obvious benefit of camping: you spend a lot of time doing physical activities. Whether you're taking a hike, going fishing or exploring the area by bike, you're getting cardiovascular exercise that will help keep your heart and lungs healthy.

 6. Vitamin D

The sun feels great on your skin and there's a good reason for that. When you're in direct sunlight, you get "a ton" of vitamin D, this vitamin helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus.

 7. A quieter sleep

If your camping gear is decent enough, you'll sleep soundly after a full day of outdoor activities. 

Sleep has an effect on all processes in the body and can help reduce inflammation and improve the cardiovascular system.

8. Experience something new

No two camping trips are the same. Studies from the University of Texas and the University of Michigan show that new experiences help maintain brain health, and sleeping in a tent will give us that new experience.

 9. Meditation

When you go camping in nature, don't forget to turn off your mobile phone. Leave your tablet and laptop at home. Try to disconnect for a few days from these "energy vampires" and enjoy the simplicity of nature.

10. Pleasant leave at minimum cost

What's nicer than spending a few days in the bosom of nature, disconnected from technology and away from the noise of the city?

Even nicer is knowing that you can have all this without spending a lot of money. You'll only spend money on a full tank of gas and a few canned goods and foods that spoil more slowly.
