A trip to a cabin in the woods might be the ideal getaway for people looking to connect with nature and get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. According to Science Daily, it has been proven that spending time in nature can reduce the risk of type II diabetes cardiovascular disease, premature death, stress, and high blood pressure. Cabins provide the benefits of spending time in nature with the luxury of having accommodations like heating, plumbing, and other amenities.
If you are planning a cabin trip this fall, here is a list of essential items to bring:
Bug repellant & Sunscreen– When you travel to the woods or spend and extended amount of time outside it is important to have bug spray. This will help you avoid those pesky bites that will bother you for the remainder of the trip. It is also essential to bring sunscreen and use it periodically to avoid painful skin burns.
Hiking books– If you plan on going for a hike during your stay, be sure to bring along the proper footwear. Hiking in the wrong kind of shoes can result in serious injury especially on rougher terrain.
Book– If you are a reader it is imperative you bring a book or two along for those quiet afternoons or evenings before bed. This will help keep your mind occupied and even give your brain some much-needed exercise.
Cozy clothes– No matter how many times you check the weather app, you may never know when an unexpected storm or cold front may arise. It is better to be safe than sorry so be sure to bring plenty of layering clothes like jackets, hats, and scarves.
When packing for a cabin trip be sure to ask what specific accommodations and amenities your lodge has. For example, some cabins do not stock basic items like toilet paper towels, so it is important to ask.
