Sleeping in the wild does wonders for your body. It resets our circadian rhythms, boosts your immune system, helps with body and brain function, speeds up your metabolism, and improves your mental well being.
Here are our secrets to unlocking the best night's sleep in the wild.
1. Sleep in the Air.
We're not just talking fresh air either. Sleeping in the air means zero pressure points. Zero pressure points mean you're relaxed and can fall asleep quickly and stay asleep all night. Need a hammock - grab your Ninox and FREE suspension!
2. The Right Space.
Claustrophobic environments don't bode well towards a peaceful night of sleep. Give yourself some elbow room and be sure there's nothing too close to your face, especially mesh - you don't want pesky bugs buzzing in your ear when you're touching the REM cycle!
3. Temperature Controls.
Check the weather, grab the right amount of insulation for that temperature minus 5°F. Vent or add as needed, this will minimally impact your sleep and get you back to sleep faster.
The wild is full of mysterious sounds, comforting to some and a distraction to others. When trying to sleep it's best to dull the distractions so your mind can completely relax and rest. Earplugs are a great way to soften the night noises.
5. Camp Pillow.
A good camp pillow goes a long way in helping you find your perfect sleep position! An adjustable and soft pillow can add comfort at your knees, neck, head, and side. Don't skimp this with a stuff sack full of your dirty laundry - a good trail pillow is worth the weight. The Pufflo is our favorite!
