Don’t go! Stay at home in your nice comfortable bed. Just kidding! Where’s the fun in that? But seriously, whilst camping is a lot of fun, sometimes it can be uncomfortable. So, we’re going to give you sometimes on how to get the best possible night’s sleep when you’re out in the sticks!
Do plenty of exercise in the day
Fortunately, this isn’t going to be too difficult to achieve. Just the process of setting up your tent can be tiring enough as it is. But luckily, there are loads of other activities, such as collecting wood and building a campfire, hiking, swimming and playing games. Make sure that you have a full day in the sunshine, (but stay protected) and you’ll be ready for a deep sleep before you know it!
Double up on sleeping mats
Why have just one, when you can have two Affordable Camping Mats? Double up when you double down, and you’ll be yet even more comfortable when you sleep. If you have spare kit, you could always bring another sleeping bag to lay down on. It all depends on how much spare equipment you have. If you don’t mind packing extra, you could bung a load of cushions into the bedroom area of your tent. That way, you can be incredibly comfortable when it’s time for bobos.
Bring a hot water bottle (just in case)
Of course, this really depends on what time of year you are planning on going camping, but it might be worth taking a hot water bottle for the colder nights, even if you pop it at the bottom of your bed for some extra warmth to your feet!
A travel pillow for neck support
If you want some extra neck support, why not invest in one of those handy travel pillows? They’re cheap and easy to pack and you’ll be able to sleep anywhere!
Another great way to ensure that you sleep well, is by having a huge and hearty dinner beforehand. Obviously, don’t be eating too late at night otherwise it’s going to sit heavy on your stomach. However, if you eat well and at the right time, you’re not going to have much trouble getting to sleep! Try out some of these awesome and healthy camping recipes for some inspiration?
Some people really enjoy the sounds of nature all around them at night, but it might be worth bringing a pair of earplugs just in case. For example, if it rains at night, it’s going to be incredibly noisy on your tent. The same applies to heavy wind! At least with your earplugs in, you’ll be able to reduce some of the noise and relax a little easier.
Keep your tent clear of pests
Its always worth keeping your tent sealed and secure during the day. Don’t leave it open for pests and mosquitos to find their way in. If you do that, you won’t have to put up with them buzzing around your ears all night!
