Have you ever enjoyed a nap at a hammock? Some studies reveal there are reasons why we enjoy so much sleeping on hanging beds. The distinctive swinging helps us fall sleep because it resembles the same waves babies fall sleep on our arms. Also, some say that the natural curve on the hammock is similar to the one we had on our mothers womb before we were born.
Anthropologists have found in Central America hammocks as old as 700 years. Columbus described them as “sleeping nets between trees”. There are many reasons why ancient cultures slept in hammocks, not just because they are comfortable, but also kept them away from the danger of the jungle floor, where scary spiders and snakes hang at night. Also they are light to carry, fresh for the warm of the Caribbean and easy to travel with. These are only few of the reasons why hammocks are becoming so popular among young travelers around the world.
The peculiar waves produced by hammocks are directly related with our memory, which makes them great for reading or studying… an active memory helps you concentrate.
