So Maybe Gardening isn't your idea of a release for Mom, but maybe camping is! For some, the idea of roughing it is at the Waldorf Astoria or the Ritz-Carlton, but for many camping is a relaxing time and a chance to connect with nature.
Imagine looking at a waterfall while hiking a nature trail or overlooking a canyon, while cooking breakfast. Maybe your pleasure is peacefully staring at the stars or listening to the soft sounds of a stream in place of the everyday sound of music. Whatever your pleasure, you can find a familiar part of it on a campout.
Most moms don't mind taking the kids for a weekend campout, I am certainly one of them, but it is a different experience when you can experience the serenity of nature without interruptions. After all, the goal is to take time out for mom, to reconnect with the part of your soul that is only for you. We spend eternity taking care of our loved ones, so it is certainly time to take care of ourselves too. A campout is a good place to start and a relaxing way to finish!
