Benefits Of Campervan Travel For Health & Wellbeing

Hitting the open road, spending time in nature, getting away from the hustle and bustle of daily
life – we could go on about the benefits of van life all day long. Read on to find out how
campervan travel can improve your health and well-being – just like it did for us.
Reconnecting with the present

It’s all too easy to get lost in the routine of daily life – going to work, looking after the kids,
keeping on top of household chores, and then sitting in front of the TV or your mobile phone.
Being more present can do wonders for your mental health and relationships.
Without some of the luxuries of home, we instead look to the world around us and each other to
find adventure. Whether that’s spending time in nature, enjoying the sunset from the comfort of
your camper, or meeting new people on a campsite, van life helps you to find the joy in being
completely present and grateful for the world we live in. The digital detox is a great way to bring
yourself back to the present too.

Better sleep

Not everyone enjoys sleeping in a tent, and some of us can’t anymore (the joys of getting old)
but there’s a lot to be said about sleeping outside. Luckily, a campervan is the next best thing,
but you also get the benefits of a comfortable bed – it’s a win-win. If you live in a noisy
neighbourhood or near a busy road, it’s total bliss falling asleep in the middle of the mountains,
or on a layby in the back end of nowhere.
Even on a rainy evening, there’s nothing quite like listening to the pitter-patter of the raindrops
on your camper’s roof while you’re lulled gently to sleep. It’s also much better for us to wake up
with nature, whether that’s the birds singing or the sun rising – you’ll wake up happier and more
refreshed, we guarantee it. Plus, improving your sleep can lower your stress levels, improve
your mood, and reduce the risk of serious health problems like heart disease.


Getting outdoors

Travelling in a campervan brings the great outdoors to your backyard, and there are plenty of
stunning routes in the UK to enjoy. Surrounded by such amazing views, you can’t help but get
outdoors and explore. This is great for our physical health, but there’s much more to it than that.
Being in nature has been scientifically proven to calm the nervous system, boost the immune
system, lower blood pressure, and improve our mental health. Plus, many of us in the UK are
vitamin D deficient, so soaking in those sun rays not only feels good, but it does wonders for our
vitamin levels too.

So, whether it’s reconnecting with the present, improving your sleep, or getting outdoors,
campervan travel can have a significant impact on your health and well-being.
