Camping is a Great Way to “Get Away From It All”

Camping is a great excuse to unplug. When you’re out bonding with Mother Nature, there’s no Wi-Fi, no power outlets, and probably not even a cell signal. In today’s modern world, its great to get a break from a constant glowing screen in your face.

Once your phone has died, you’ll quickly realize how many of the small things have passed you by because you’ve been too busy checking Facebook, Instagram, or playing Angry Birds. No one is going to be texting you, no email alerts will be going off, and your phone won’t be buzzing. Instead you’ll hear the birds in the trees, the bubbling of a stream, feel a breeze in your hair, and instead of being blinded by neon signs and a computer screen, you’ll realize how bright the stars shine at night.

Camping will help you get in touch with nature in way that you can’t with the constant stresses of a busy life. Even if you live in the country, you probably don’t appreciate nature until you’re forced to live in it, and you don’t have any daily tasks weighing down your mind. Camping makes you slow down and take in your surrounds, and really observe how beautiful, powerful, and sometimes even overwhelming.

To really make the most out of a camping trip to “get away from it all”, bring as few technological items as possible. Really focus on trying to bring it back to the basics. Instead of a GPS, try using a compass. Instead of bringing and gas powered stove, make a fire. Get in touch with your feral self, and camp with the basics. Doing this will truly force you to become one with the wilderness (and appreciate the modern luxuries you have at home after the trip!).

So switch off your phone, close your computer, pack your bag, and go camping. See the sunset and sunrise, and instead of thinking about how you have to rush to work, this time, enjoy it!
