Covid 19 and Camping
In our second year of trying to cope with the Covid 19 virus, we’ve seen many things that are the result of people being stuck inside their homes. More people are working from home, exercising at home, getting educated at home, and eating at home than ever. And correlating with that are higher rates of depression, feelings of isolation, lack of exercise, and countless other issues. Even before Covid 19, the Environmental Protection Agency reported that Americans spent 90% of our time indoors. Lack of sunlight, indoor air pollution, lack of social interaction, lack of exercise, and increased stress are all things that have negative impacts on your health and your quality of life.
Getting out of the house and getting moving is essential to your health and happiness—and it’s also safe. The CDC has reported that it’s likely less than 1% of Covid 19 cases were contracted outdoors. There are no confirmed cases of people contracting the virus while outside during regular activities like passing people on the sidewalk. In addition, Vitamin D, which you get from the sun, has been shown to be effective in combatting the symptoms of Covid 19, especially when combined with zinc.
The mental and physical benefits of being in nature have been studied for decades, but now more than ever, it’s time to get out of the house and go on an adventure. Disconnecting from the negativity on the news and social media can help you focus on what’s important in your life—your health, happiness, and your family.
Taking a week off and renting an RV or a camper can help you escape the house and enjoy the outdoors without the monetary investment and commitment of maintaining an RV or camper yourself. Unlike going to stay at a hotel during your vacation, where you’d be at higher risk and have to share common indoor spaces with others, staying in an RV or camper is safe. Many of our campgrounds have scenic lakes with kayaks or canoes for you to enjoy. Call us today or schedule an appointment online for your next vacation!
