Enjoy the sun slowly rising to begin your day. You don’t need to be in a hurry to get anywhere by a certain time. Just sit by the campfire sipping your morning coffee or a cup of hot cocoa. Finding Peace In Nature Camping
How do you find peace when you're camping?

All I need to do is go camping by myself. Cell phone off, no Internet, no bricks and asphalt, no traffic and all the time in the world to do nothing but sit in a chair, poking at a fire or sit and watch the trees grow.

Same same. Just being away from other people, and away from technology. Hang in my hammock in the woods, reading a book, I'm good.

Get rid of kids for the day (or week:)), especially with bouncing balls, technology, barking dogs and then find the most out of the way place that's away from humankind and totally relax. Better than going to spa and health centres, and finding you are worrying about the cost:)

for me, the peace in nature, when it is louder than the unnatural, is where i find the most peace. it is hard to describe, but when you hear it, you know it. it is getting harder and harder to find that peace, so i usually resort to A) finding louder nature (waterfall...), or B) ignoring the sounds and seeking a visual peace.
as much as i like music, if i listen while out camping, it is always with headphones. the idea is to take my mind off the unnatural, but not add to it for others.

at least that is my version of peace while camping. not silence, but nature in ether a visual or full experience.

For me it starts when I pull off of the maintained road onto the Jeep trail, I roll down the windows & get the scent and sound of the pines and feel the stress start to leave.

I shift into four wheel drive and basically slow down to a slow walk. At that speed I can look around and observe and ocasionally find the local deer, elk or bears looking at me (they often do nothing more than go about thier business).

Once camp is set up I do a walk around and pick up trash, then clean out the fire pit (with a rebuild, if necessary).
Where upon I kick back in a chair for some serious relaxation while absorbing the area ambience; hopefully; there is a stream nearby to provide some white noise; if not the sound of the wind in the pines or across the desert... While I consider whats next; a short walkabout with firewood collection, or lunch.
I normally leave the music and reading for times when the weather is less than pleasant, and I am constrained to inhabbit the tent.

If friends drop by I may build a fire and/or put on some music... I often tell some friends where I will be camping; those that do not care to participate for the whole trip, regularly swing by so that they can get a taste of camp without, most of, the hassle.
When supper is imminent I will prepare a fire for cooking if needed or evening entertainment if not.

Enjoy!
