Want to be happy?
Have children who feel happier with their family?
Be less stressed?
And more socially connected?
I think that applies to you, me and everyone else.
But how can you do it?
Liverpool John Moores University did research (proof that I am not making this stuff up can be found here) and an interactive brochure “The Real Richness” that outlines this research, can be found here.
93% of campers said camping made them happier
77% of campers are satisfied with their quality of life compared to 59% of non-campers
21% of campers feel stressed on an average day compared to 33% of non-campers
84% of campers think camping can make you healthier
Benefits for children?
There’s another set of impressive facts too, including these 3 big points:
91% of kids said that spending time exploring the outdoors with their Mum and Dad would make them feel happy
80% of kids who camp feel their parents are less stressed when camping and 76% say their parents shout less!
76% of kids who camp notice that their parents have more time for hugs than usual
