8 Amazing Benefits of Glamping
August 18, 2021
Are you someone who loves to try new things and experience adventures? Do you find yourself constantly wanting to travel but you’re never sure where to go? Have you ever considered that to travel you don’t need to stay in a tent or at a 5-star hotel? There’s something right in the middle that can give you the experience of your life. That thing is glamping. It’s basically glamorous camping. And it has a ton of benefits!
Outdoor memories among family create meaningful, lasting bonds…
Zion White Bison Resort was founded on this belief & provides the perfect family glamping destination.
1. Glamping Is Preparation-Free
When you go camping, you have to either drive or hike to your campsite. Once you get there, you have to unload your backpacks and set up your tent. This could take anywhere from minutes to hours depending on the type of tent you have and can leave you exhausted before your vacation even begins.
You then have to make sure your food is locked away so no wild animals can get in and steal your food while you’re sleeping.
With glamping, you don’t have to worry about any preparation! You show up and your bed is already made. You won’t have to worry about unpacking any lanterns, mosquito nets, tents, or any other camping accessories.
If you’re planning on adventuring around the area, you won’t have to worry about packing any of that gear either.
2. You’ll Experience a Touch of Luxury
Have you ever dreamed of spending a night underneath the clear sky gazing at the moon, the stars, and possibly even the Milky Way?
If the idea of sleeping in a tent with no bathroom, no heat, no bed, and basically nothing else has been turning you off to this idea, then you may not be meant for camping. But you could be meant for glamping!
When glamping, you’ll get everything you’ve ever imagined and more. Instead of just spending the night under the stars, why not add a glass of champagne while you gaze up toward the sky? What about all of that while relaxing in a hot tub?
You can have all of that if you choose to go glamping. And if you want to explore the surrounding area, you can do so without worrying about being exhausted the next day without a good night’s sleep.
3. You’ll Get a Great Night’s Sleep
If you’ve ever been camping, you know that sleeping may not be the best part of the trip. It may be too hot and humid for you to get comfortable with the temperature, and you’re probably squeezed into a tiny tent.
When you go glamping, sleep is never something you have to worry about! At Zion White Bison, our lodging amenities include central heating and cooling so that you can set your space up specifically for your comfort level. You’ll also have a luxury bed with nice pillows and comfy sheets to sleep in after a long day of adventuring.
The environment that comes with glamping, such as the natural light and darkness, will help with your sleep patterns. Add that to being able to unplug from technology and enjoying fresh air, and you’ll be sleeping like a baby!
4. Unplug From Technology
One of the greatest benefits of glamping is the ability (and necessity) to unplug from technology. In today’s world, we’re constantly plugged into our computers, phones, tablets, and anything else that we can get our hands on. It’s no question whether it’s great to constantly be on our phones.
You’ll be able to unplug from technology and instead plug into the surrounding nature. You’ll notice a reduction in any prior stress, an increase in self-awareness, and any anxiety or depression you came into glamping with simmer away. The health benefits of unplugging from technology and connecting with nature are unparalleled.
Getting rid of technology for the weekend or week while you’re glamping will bring you more benefits than you could ever imagine.
5. Boost Your Mood And Health
Going glamping can boost your mood in more ways than one.
When you spend time in nature, your mood is naturally boosted because of the fresh air, an increase in oxygen, and the sounds that nature brings. Being in a natural environment can reduce your stress in the moment and for days after the fact.
If you battle with depression, spending time in nature can also reduce the effects you feel from the state of depression. Not only will you feel a reduction in symptoms, it can also combat your depression from getting worse from stress or other life factors.
Another reason you’ll notice a boost in your mood is because you are receiving an increase in Vitamin D. Any time spent outdoors will allow you to soak in the vitamin from the sun, even if it is cloudy, which has a ton of its own health benefits.
One surprising benefits of glamping is that it not only helps with your emotional wellbeing, but it is also beneficial to your physical wellbeing. Nature will reduce your heart rate, blood pressure, tension, and stress hormones.
If you don’t think you have to worry about your physical and emotional well-being, spending time in nature will still be beneficial for you. You may not notice how you’re feeling until you unplug from the “normal” world. You’ll find time to reflect on your life and how you feel when you spend time in nature.
