At Hangematten Experten HQ, we get a lot of weird and wonderful questions about what you can and can’t do in a hammock, so we thought we would clarify a few DON’Ts with you;
1) Can I swing myself right over?
Not only do you risk falling out and really hurting yourself, but you could end up with your ropes all knotted and nothing but a broken hammock, or leg, to show for it!
2) Can I use it as a trampoline?
This we think would be fairly explanatory. A whole truckload of disasters spring to mind with this one but children seem intent on giving it a try!
3) Can I floss in a hammock
So we know ‘flossing’ is a thing, and we have all tried to do it in the office, some with a lot more success than others, may I add. Best to try it on the firmer ground we reckon!
4) Will doing my finances make it less stressful?
Hammocks are supposed to be a tranquil place, for relaxing, snoozing, reading and dreaming. So leave your reports, end of year reports and astro-physics for your desk!
5) Can I do hammock yoga?
Suspended or ‘Arial’ yoga is a thing, but without proper instruction, we think that this too could end up with you having to take a trip to A&E. I mean who really is that flexible anyway?!
