Is there a science behind
sleeping better in the wild?
Swiss scientists discovered after hooking up brain monitoring systems and scanned the test subjects brains to determine which was better: a stationary bed or a rocking bed (hammock).
All of the test subjects actually transitioned into a deep sleep faster in the hammock vs. the stationary bed.
Extended N2 stage sleeping was experience thanks to the slight rocking of the hammock, thanks to increased 'sleep spindles' which are associated with deep sleep.
Scientists believe that this slow rocking motion could actually help reduce insomnia thanks to the development of new brain pathways that generate better sleep.
If you made it this far you’re obviously serious about wanting better sleep in the outdoors...
Sleeping in the Air (the right way) actually suspends you in a near anti-gravity state, so that you do not feel pressure points - ask any ground camper, press points = sore bones in the morning.
