Reasons you should go camping this summer

  1. You don't have to bathe for a couple days and honestly, your skin will thank you for it.
  2. You can get as dirty as you want.
  3. You spend the entire day outdoors, so you see the sunrise, the sunset, the emergence of the bats at night, the first starlight. 
  4. You can have a fire and roast marshmallows or weenies. 
  5. You don't have to get up early and you don't really have to go anywhere (unless you want to).
  6. You can see things you've never seen before.
  7. You hear the birds chirping in the morning, and the hoot of the owls at night. You can hear coyotes howling, and the wind blowing through the trees.
  8. Being outdoors resets your brain. In a couple hours, all those voices screaming about all the things you have to do just go away.
  9. Brain reset = lower stress levels.
  10. Camping automatically makes you pay attention more, laugh more, reconnect more. 

Do it! Get out there!
