4 Benefits of a JELLYSTONE PARK™ Weekend in the Great Outdoors
Lately, have your kids been spending too much time staring at a T.V., smartphone, or monitor? If so, they have plenty of company. According to a recent BBC Report, children are spending over six hours a day in front of a screen of some kind. Obviously, everyone, including the family, now needs some time to unplug on the weekends. And you guessed it! Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park is the perfect place to spend time enjoying the great outdoors. Aside from a fun-filled weekend, camping with Yogi Bear offers four great benefits:
- Camping improves your sleep: Everyone is feeling a little tired. It is the change of seasons. This time of year, our 24-hour rhythm may be a little off. Sleeping under the stars can help reset your natural sleep patterns, assisting in better rest patterns so the morning wake up becomes just a little easier. The combination of time spent soaking up natural light and avoiding the blue glare of screens and fluorescent lighting helps you sleep better.
- Spending time outdoors makes you happy: It’s true! Campers are exposed to more sunlight and oxygen which increases the body’s production of serotonin. The increase of this neurotransmitter means a boost in mood. Camping also requires physical activity: hello, endorphins!
- Camping stimulates the brain: Make that brain work! It is healthy to keep one’s brain stimulated and camping does just that. Camping is an activity that always offers a new experience even when it’s done a lot. Whether it’s fishing, kayaking, camping in a tent or a cabin, Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park has a wide range of activities that will keep everyone coming back for more!
- Families that camp together, stay together. A weekend camping often requires the whole family to pitch in—it requires synergy and the completion of common objectives and goals. Working together fosters communication, too. Giving the family an opportunity to cooperate and interact effectively as a unit is good for everyone. Plus, plenty of laughter and learning are bound to take place whether the family is full of experienced campers or trying it out for the first time. Some of your kids’ best memories may one day be of the weekend spent at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park.
