Why Glamping is Good for Mental Health

Updated: May 16, 2023

Have your holiday plans been spoiled this year due to COVID-19? A glamping break, right here in the UK, could be exactly what you need. Glamping offers a welcome break from technology and the demands of everyday life – not to mention it will give you something to look forward to during these unprecedented times!

What is Glamping?

The word ‘glamping’ is a portmanteau (combination of) ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’. More luxurious than traditional camping, glamping allows you to simply turn up at a building or structure and enjoy your stay, with no tent assembly required! More deluxe glamping sites offer en-suite bathrooms and private cooking facilities, with restricted guest numbers (unlike hotels and holiday complexes). Glamping sites are often located in rural areas with picturesque settings – there is something quite remarkable about the peace and tranquillity you can find on a short glamping break…

Improve Your Mental Health a Glamping Getaway

COVID-19 and lockdown have had a devastating impact upon the physical and mental health of many, and may have provoked you to reassess your priorities – after all, the health and safety of ourselves and our loved ones is the most important thing in life. Whilst glamping cannot cure physical illnesses, it can certainly boost your mental health. Heading out to the middle of nowhere with your loved one, where the fresh air is plentiful and beautiful views lie all around, is proven to be good for your soul and mental health.

Health benefits of glamping include:

  1. 'Researchers have found a fascinating link between access to green space, such as fields, forests, parks and gardens, and a reduced risk of mental health problems, improved mood, and increased life satisfaction' as according to the Mental Health Foundation

  2. Letting your body sleep and rise with the natural light cycles (as nature intended) restores our circadian rhythm, helping us feel more in tune with our body

  3. Additional Vitamin D from time spent outdoors can help improve immune system function, aid weight loss and lower your risk of diabetes and high blood pressure

  4. 'Observing and interacting with wildlife in their natural habitat, such as watching birds in a garden, can improve people’s feelings of well-being, relaxation, and connection to nature' as according to the Mental Health Foundation

  5. Spending time solo or together, away from all the daily distractions we now have, helps to reduce stress and alleviate depression, leaving you feeling happier and energised
