The benefits of outdoor sleeping
Why should you sleep outside, if you also have a cozy bed or a tent? Simple: because it is an incomparable feeling to watch the starry sky, to listen to the noise of the leaves and to breathe the fresh air. Sleeping outside has many advantages for your well-being:
- You sleep deeper and more restful, as you adapt to the natural rhythm of light and darkness.
- You strengthen your immune system, as you are exposed to different temperatures and weather conditions.
- You reduce your stress, as you distracted from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and concentrate on the essentials.
- You experience nature more intensely, as you can truly immerse yourself in its beauty and diversity.
The right equipment for the outdoor sleeping
If you want to sleep outside, you should equip yourself well to ensure your comfort and safety. Depending on the season, weather conditions and personal tastes, you can choose between different options:
- A Daunenschlafsack is the most important element for a pleasant night outdoors. It should be warm, light and breathable. Depending on the temperature range, there are different models that are filled with down or synthetic fibers. Take care that the sleeping bag fits well and is not too tight or too far.
- A Isomatte provides good insulation from the floor and protects you from cold and moisture. It should be comfortable, robust and easy to inflate. There are different types of isomatten, such as Foam, air or self-inflating mats. Depending on the weight and pack size, you can choose the right mat for your tour.
- A Hammock is a great alternative to sleeping, if you can stretch between two trees or similar fix points. It offers you a relaxed reclining position and good ventilation. However, you should be careful that the hammock is sturdy, weatherproof and equipped with a mosquito net. In addition, you should place an additional insulation in order not to cool.
- A Tarp is a watertight tarpaulin that you can span across your sleeping place to protect you from rain, wind or sun. It can be used in a very flexible way and can be fastened differently as required. However, you should be careful that the tarp is large enough to cover you completely.
