DIY Hammock Stand

Hammocks aren’t just for relaxing family holidays – although they are excellent for that. They can also improve your mental and physical health, , helping you become calmer, well-rested person.

A study out of the University of Geneva in Switzerland found that swaying gently in a hammock can often cure insomnia.

The gentle swing of a hammock helps the brain reach deeper levels of sleep, ensuring that you get the fullest benefits of an afternoon nap.
