As children we have always wanted to live in a tent with our secret weapons where there is nobody to disturb us. Once looked upon as a desire, living in a tent full time looks like a dream full of curiosities.The whole idea of living in a canvas wall tent sounds exciting yet delirious considering we are so used to living in our homes.
Some people do decide to live in a tent for an extended duration and believe it or not, they live quite comfortably. There is a lot that goes behind the decision to live in a tent but when you are well prepared, the whole idea can be fun and an unforgettable experience. We spoke to a couple of people who seemed to like the idea, and they shared their opinion on why living in a tent could be fun…
- A sabbatical from normal lifestyle
An associate of ours who also happens to be a psychologist believes that forest bathing can help you be healthier in many ways. The fresh air that you take in helps in keeping your body and soul calm while strengthening your immune system. A long break in outdoors from your usual lifestyle can make you happier as well.
- Lower carbon footprint
Let’s all face it, no matter how hard we try to plastics-free, there’s always one thing made of single-use plastic found in our trash bin. Living in a tent can help you save electricity and water bills, along with almost nil use of non-biodegradable elements.
- Challenge yourself
Living in a tent can be an exhilarating experience in itself. You get to learn a lot and figure out solutions to problems you dealt with back in the day. Technically, you get to live in a world when there was no technology around. And why not, you learn off-grid living skills and hope to teach other families a more sustainable way to live.
You may choose to go with the idea or drop it, but the only thing that supports your idea is a Canvas wall tent for these reasons…
- Good insulation: to keep you warm when temperature drops. Read our article about "Do Canvas Tents Hold Heat?" here.
- Breath ability: Canvas Cotton is a natural material and does not support condensation unlike Nylon tents, which makes it breathable inside.
- Durable: They are well equipped to deal with exposure to harsh weather conditions and exposure to UV rays.
- Waterproof: Canvas is a heavier fabric and has waterproof and water-repelling properties unlike other tents.
