Going on golfing trips is one way of spending the weekend or vacation, and one of the best ways of taking a break from your daily routine if you’re a golfing enthusiast. People go to different golfing locations around the world just to enjoy the sport that they enjoy so much. Most of the time, they take the regular trips where they get to stay in hotel rooms and pretty much live the way that they would have if they were back home. Have you ever tried doing something slightly different like camping while on the trip? I believe in trying out new experiences, and this could very well be one of them. Try something different from what you’re used to. While on these camping trips, you can sleep in tent, tucked away in your sleeping bags, or you could opt for hammocks instead. In this article, we are going to look at the reasons to swap your bed for a hammock, or not to. We are going to quickly list down the advantages of hammocks and then we will leave it to you to decide if you would like to take a hammock with you on your next golfing trip.
- Fall asleep faster – people tend to fall asleep faster due to the swinging sensation of the hammock. According to research, the swinging effect brings out brainwaves that make people fall asleep faster.
- Deeper sleep (which is thought to be healthier) – the same brain wave oscillations that we have just mentioned, due to the swinging sensation also provide for deeper sleep.
- Better ability to concentrate during the day because you have slept better, and the body has had time to relax; energy restored, tissues and muscles repaired, and the immune system fortified.
- Better reading and increased learning since the body is well rested, making it easier to concentrate.
- Alleviate back pain (anecdotal reports only), since the pressure points on the body while we sleep are alleviated more effectively than when sleeping on beds or couches.
- No more dust mites infested, dead skin cell stuffed mattresses
The only con of sleeping on a hammock is that it is not as romantic, since it is more of a solo thing. Sleeping as a couple on a hammock for the night just doesn’t add up, since the strings could end up tangled, and you could end up bunched together. On the other hand, if you’re both sleeping on a dual hammock, which would work well for a couple, and one of you needs to step out in the middle of the night, it would cause an imbalance, hence potential danger.
