Our family goes camping as much as we can. I grew up camping and luckily my husband loves camping too which means that our kids had no choice not to start loving camping as well!
√ no TV
√ no mirrors
√ no bras
√ no shoes
√ no schedule
√ no alarm clocks
√ no computers
√ no iPads
√ 24-hour grounding
√ daily swimming
√ communal food prep/cooking
√ meeting new people
√ sleeping without wifi
√ sleeping on the ground
√ deep sleeps
√ waking up to the sun and the birds
√ sharing a small space and being so close to my family for the whole holiday
√ fresh air
√ independence from modern living
√ bombardment with negative ions
√ the feeling of freedom
See why I happily put up with occasional wet and sandy feet in bed?
Apart from the obvious benefits you get from the list above, I want to outline the importance of taking a break from modern living and what it can do for our mental health.
I get that you're either a camper or you're not....but remember you and your life keeps changing so definitely put camping on your 'keep trying' list if you've had a bad experience in the past.
