There’s compelling evidence suggesting that camping can positively impact mental health. Being outdoors and immersed in nature has been shown to reduce stress, improve mood, and increase feelings of happiness and well-being.

Here are some ways camping can benefit mental health:

Reducing Stress
Camping can help reduce stress levels by providing a break from the demands of everyday life. Spending time in nature has been shown to lower cortisol levels, a hormone associated with stress.

Increasing Physical Activity
Camping often involves physical activities such as walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, sea swimming, and kayaking. Physical activity has been shown to improve mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Enhancing Social Connections
Camping can be a social activity, whether with family, friends, or a group of strangers. Social connections are important for mental health and well-being. So, get out a bat and ball or light up the BBQ and gather a friendly group of fellow travelers.

Promoting Relaxation
Camping provides an opportunity to disconnect from technology and immerse oneself in the natural world. Watching the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets can promote relaxation and mindfulness, which can improve mental health.
