With activities for every family member to enjoy, top-notch accommodations, and more, there are plenty of reasons camping at Jellystone Park™ is a must. But did you know that improving your health is one, too? It’s true! Studies have shown that less screen time, along with spending time outside, is a great way to improve your mental and physical health. Keep reading for 3 reasons why a camping getaway to Jellystone Park™ is beneficial for your family’s health!
Less Screen Time
It’s easy to pick up your cell phone to check email or social media, but we encourage our campers to put down their devices and make lasting memories with their family and friends. With dozens of activities to choose from, you and your kids won’t even miss watching TV or browsing Instagram. While technology can be a great thing, it’s nice to unplug every once in a while – your mind will surely thank you!
Bounce on the jumping pillow, play a game of basketball, go for a swim in the pool – our Camp-Resort provides a variety of opportunities for you and your family to be active! Instead of lounging on the couch at home, you’ll be able to partake in physical activity without even being aware of it! Since you’ll be having so much fun in the sun, not only will you feel better from being active, but you’ll also have a great night’s sleep after a fun-filled day.
Soaking up the sun, and breathing in fresh air, are both beneficial to your health. Being out in the sun (don’t forget your sunscreen), allows your body to soak up lots of Vitamin D. Vitamin D is important because it plays a significant role in the regulation of calcium – aka healthy bones! Additionally, both sunshine and fresh air increase serotonin production in the brain which leads you to feel happier and less stressed.
While unplugging, being active, and soaking up the sun are all benefits of camping in the great outdoors – the list goes on and on. Sleep better, reduce your stress levels, strengthen relationships with family, connect with nature, learn new things, and more!
