Camping- Have you ever been engrossed in work and daily life activities that you feel a rush to go somewhere far away from work and probably out of the city. It is so easy for our minds to be so tangled and thick with competing for must-dos, such that our productivity goes down drastically. When you feel trapped, a new environment around nature will give you back a sense of motion or flow. Spending even just a night or even a day outside that feeling of entrapment can return back your productivity when you return to office after some days off. We all should use our vacations well, unused vacation time hardly reaps rewards So you leave civilization, pack your bag, some few clothing and off you go into some forest far away from the city for the next say three days. Yeah sounds crazy! An average Nigerian doesn’t understand why one should leave your comfort zone into the forest, pitch a tent and enjoy nature.
But trust me the benefits of such daring acts are just amazing. We can get entangled in our work and daily tasks that turns us acting like robots, sometimes we need a new place , breath new air to get back to being productive and rejuvenated, and that’s where camping comes to place. Leaving your electronic, gadget and getting into the wild to truly experience an unplugged side of life is rewarding. So put down your phone, pick up your pencil and scrawl these ideas down onto the back of some actual paper
