4 Reasons Hammocks Are Good For You.

Also good for someone else.. so it makes a brilliant gift every single time.

Spending some time in a hammock can offer you access to a peaceful retreat from the world. Being suspended above the grass, beach, or another landscape with the wind blowing gently is one of the best experiences in the world.

There are several benefits to consider if you’re thinking about owning a hammock. Here is what you can expect.

#1. You fall asleep faster.

Hammocks place you into the perfect body position for sleep. That encourages your body to relax faster, allowing you to enter into a state of rest quickly. This process engages with even more speed if there is a gentle rocking motion included.

#2. You can optimise your rest.

There is less tossing and turning when you rest in a hammock. The design places your head at a natural elevation of about 10% (or more), allowing your body to find a comfort zone to encourage relaxation.

#3. You receive a deeper, better rest.

Not only can you find rest faster when you take a nap in a hammock, but it will also help you to sleep deeper and longer. This benefit encourages memory improvements, a balanced mood, and an increase in your mental performance.

#4. You can perform restful activities in a hammock.

Reading in a hammock is a favourite activity because you can quickly find a comfortable position to enjoy a great book. You can read outside, in the sunshine, without needing any pillows.

You could sleep each night in a hammock if you find one that is comfortable. It may help with insomnia, encourage better sleep, and help you get through your day faster. Why not try one today?

How to Fix an Issue with a Hammock Bottoming Out

Hammocks will eventually stretch out some over time. Bigger hammocks may extend their length by up to two feet, depending on the age and composition of the product and how often it is used. If given enough time, a correctly-hung hammock can one day have you practically lying on the ground when you use it. Is there a way that you can restore your hammock to help extend its life?

Start By Adjusting Your Hanging Chains

If you are experiencing a lot of sag with your hammock due to stretching, then the first thing you can do to compensate for the issue is to adjust the hanging chains at the end of your product. By shortening the chains, you will give your hammock an extra level of lift that can restore its functionality.

Older hammocks may already have had their chains shortened to a point where you cannot get much lift anymore. In this situation, the rope or product may be near the end of its usable life, especially if it looks frayed or weak.

If the hammock rope looks intact, then you can choose to adjust your hanging height to accommodate the stretching or change the hanging distance if circumstances allow. Remember to keep 40-50 centimetres of space between the ground or floor and the bottom of your hammock for the best results. When you can make immediate adjustments to the installation of your hammock, then you can prevent issues with bottoming out. If these fixes do not work, then it may be time to invest in a new product.
