Full disclosure: I’m an outdoor person. I love anything nature related. Camping and hiking are where I am most happiest. So naturally the thought of staying in a treehouse is right up my alley and definitely on my bucket list. I mean, how fun would it be to spend a few nights high up in a tree, away from technology, and just enjoying all that nature has to offer? Sounds like a dream to me. Here are five reasons why staying in a tree house would be so much fun!
Not going to lie, one of my favorite reasons for being in remote outdoor locations is that it forces you to unplug from technology. It gives you the opportunity to reset. Taking some time to be inside my own head and letting life slow down a little bit is something I need to do every once in awhile. It’s a chance for me to really take in life and appreciate the little things.
Be A Kid Again
Let’s face it…being an adult isn’t always fun. I don’t know about you, but I often look at my nieces and nephews and think how awesome it would be to be a kid again for a day. Life is so serious and I believe that there has to be room for some pure silliness. Staying in a treehouse would bring some of that childhood nostalgia back for me.
Kiss Your Stress Goodbye
I know I already touched on this a bit and how being in nature is my favorite thing, but it’s also the most natural thing for us. Did you know that nature sounds reduces our body’s natural fight-or-flight instinct? It’s true. It’s science! You can read more about the health study here. Spending time in nature definitely helps to improve my stress levels which makes a treehouse weekend sound even more appealing.
How many of us spend most of our days at work or at home behind a computer screen? I know I’m guilty of that! The beach is literally 2 miles from my doorstep and I barely make it there. Life gets busy and sometimes we forget how important it is for our bodies to get outside and enjoy some sunshine.
Creating memories has always been one of my favorite things. Spending time away from technology with your significant other or with your family, allows you to fully be present. I’m going to bet that you return from your trip with some amazing stories. Not to mention the fun conversation starter of telling people about that one time you stayed in a treehouse.
