When many people think about relieving stress, camping probably isn’t the first thing that they think of. And yet it’s simple, extremely cheap, incredibly fun, and a perfect way of getting out in nature! It’s one of the most perfect forms of stress relief and, if you hadn’t thought about camping this year, I want you to seriously consider it because it’s a perfect way to relieve stress!

And here’s why…

As many women know, stress can be crippling. Jobs can be stressful, and mothers understand how stressful children can make life. One of the major causes of stress is feeling that one is trapped; simply getting away from home can be challenging in many cases, stress levels often rise as a result. There are a number of stress-relieving techniques most know about, but there is one that is rarely considered: camping.

Here are some of the ways that camping be can help reduce stress levels.

1. Get away from it all

Between computers, smart phones, the Internet and television, people often feel that they cannot escape from a never-ending stream of data. While this technology has improved life in many ways, many researchers believe that it has increased stress levels. By going camping, it is possible to completely detach from this technology and take a break. In many camping locations, it is impossible to receive cell phone signals, which forces those who camp to take a break. Even a weekend away can provide tremendous relief.

2. Relaxing effects of nature

Nature offers a transcendent beauty that is difficult to experience in the cities and suburbs in which most people live. Nature combines simplicity with complexity in a way that puts life into perspective, and many people find a simple walk through the woods or by a river to be incredibly soothing. By going camping, one has few options but to enjoy natural scenery as much as possible.

3. Get in touch with ancient ancestors

Thousands of years ago, humans lived in nature. While concrete and wood buildings provide a number of benefits, they are not the dwellings of our human ancestors. By going camping, campers can gain some perspective on how much society has changed through the years. While this change has largely been beneficial, it can help to gain some perspective by experiencing life as it was lived by our ancestors only a few thousand years ago.

4. Simplicity

Campsites do not offer stoves, ovens, televisions or any of the comforts people enjoy today. As a result, those who camp must greatly simplify their lives. Instead of relying on stoves, campers must build a fire. Instead of watching television, those who camp must sit back and read a book. One of the major causes of stress is information overload, and camping provides a means to avoid absorbing the information overload that can lead to excessive stress levels. Many find that they are better able to concentrate on what needs to be done after spending the weekend away at a campsite.
