Independence and freedom shatter the walls of a confined state of mind and open wide vistas for you. And nothing provides a better opportunity to be free than being a solo camper. Such opportunities present thrill, fear, excitement and a sense of liberation among the pursuers. Here are the reasons why you should go solo camping at least once in your life.
You Forge a Better Connection with Yourself
While solo camping, you have no family or friend to rely on. You have to manage everything on your own, and that is a great step towards forging an enduring connection with your own self. Solo camping makes you more aware of your physical, psychological and emotional needs, as your entire attention is pulled inside you. Sitting alone without a soul to disturb you and reading your books in a camp sound like a good idea.
You Learn to Manage Money
Solo camping makes you financially smart. You have a limited budget, and you learn to spend that amount as wisely as possible. Instead of spending all your money on futile pursuits, you learn to keep it safe for the crucial periods.
You learn to Handle Yourself
We can never control the circumstances. You might catch a cold or have a bad case of cough. During these periods, you learn to handle yourself. You come across the limitations of a human body, and you learn to take care of yourself accordingly.
You Become Independent
Solo camping allows you to depend on only your own expertise. From planning the trip to booking a ticket and managing your travel, you become highly independent. Not to mention, solo camping will remove all your inhibitions and make you fearless. You will set your own camp and find ways to enjoy the bonfire without your travel buddies.
You Build New Friendships
When we camp with our friends, we generally stay in our group. But while solo camping, you’d inevitably come across people like you. Some might belong to a different country and some might have a different language. Nonetheless, you’d manage to build new friendships, as you’d have a lot of free time to invest in other people.
