We are drowning in a quicksand of stress every day and one might ask is there anybody why can give us a hand and pull us out? Is there anything that can help us unchain? The solution is so simple and obvious and reachable for everyone: nature. What is more healing than nature itself?
You just need to step outside the big cities, piles of concrete and artificiality and enter the world of green purity. And the easiest way to do this is by camping. You do not need money, expensive clothes, sports car or anything that belongs to luxury. You should just bring good mood, some food, drinking water and everything else should be left by side. Camping means having fun in nature and in the fresh air – you just need to adjust your habits to a new environment.
If you are ready for nature, nature will return to you more than you expect. Before you decide to go camping, you should pick an appropriate tent. As soon as you find a perfect location for camping, which should be on a flat and safe terrain, and below some tree if possible you can start filling with energy. As soon as you step into the realms of nature you feel immense relaxation. All those colors, fresh air, heavenly silence fulfill your essence with enormous pleasure and sense of being part of something bigger, something that goes far and beyond. Instead of noise, you can hear only a sweet whisper of a current of fresh air that caresses your whole body.
Camping is just a tool for achieving that internal peace and a cure for healing our tormented and fragile spirit. It can last only one day and night, and that would be enough for total rebirth and recovery. We should all be one with nature because it was the case from the beginning of the world. Just imagine yourself near one creek, bright summer night, stars above you, the sputter of fire and complete silence. You are being filled with positive energy and ready for a return to everyday activities in the city.
In these times of hard working, rush and lack of time, we all should give ourselves a break and soul peace. People are forgetting constantly how important is to spend some time in nature – not only because we run from a buildings, city traffic or fast life, but because we charge our batteries in that way. Some people would not say so, but they just can’t admit that nature is important for our normal life functioning. The more time we spend in human’s natural environment, the more we get in every sense.
Spending all day long at work? Everyday city clamour? Alienation? Lack of Time? Rush? Anxiety? This has, unfortunately, become habitual way of modern life in each and every sense for many of us. We are just watching how our lives pass around us and in most cases doing absolutely nothing to ameliorate and make them better. Everyday way of life does not allow us relaxation, socializing or even simple physical or soul rest. The best way to regain our natural way of life, even for a short time, is to reconcile with both nature in ourselves and nature outdoor, and this can be achieved by a simple thing: Camping.
Camping is a unique way of relaxation that does not require much time or much money. You do not need special organizational skills or hard planning or high level of cognitive art. You just need good will, humor and nothing more. Family camping, sports camping, friend’s camping, dry camping, backpacking, bicycle camping… they all have the same goal: connection of people of the same or different interests in natural environment. People have come out from nature, and that is the main reason why they strive for nature whenever they can. Besides connection between people, camping can be a good excuse for natural and physical relaxation because we all know that nature itself was and still is the best “spa center” for our bodies and “six stars hotel” for our soul. Health problems can just vanish as soon as you step outdoor because tension and stress make us too many troubles in everyday life, and they are forbidden in the green bosom of nature. The best thing about camping is that every single person can organize it in the way he or she likes it. The most popular activities that can be practiced on camping are hiking, walking, fishing, hunting, picking berries, in one word, activities that are the core of artistic and craft skills.
Through camping, we are returning to nature in the purest sense, where we give nature ourselves and nature gives us its best. The combination of fresh air instead of polluted city’s air, physical activities that give us an immense pleasure and enjoyment instead of sitting in a smelly office all day, twittering of birds instead of traffic clamour and real talk with real people instead of watching at computers and images of people, cannot do any harm for you.
Fresh air will open your blood cells, you will fill natural energy inside yourself, you will become more optimistic and start looking bright sides of life immediately ready to jump over any obstacle that life throws on your way. We often wonder how because of everyday liabilities we do not even have time for our family. What is better for connection with family members than outdoor camping? Just imagine you and the people you love sitting around the campfire, marshmallow on the sticks, fresh summer’s night breeze, a murmur of the mountain brook in a distance, talking, singing, laughing – surely wonderful and memorable family moment never to be forgotten.
Just step outdoor, inhale the nature, fill yourself with the essence of life, and recharge your life batteries – seize the day and do something important for yourselves. Go camping!
