Hammock chairs will change the world! “That’s a stretch!”, the critics say. “It is not” we say! Let us explain, and perhaps you’ll agree and join the movement!

Our premise is that when you give someone a hammock chair, you’ve given them the gift of relaxation. Fair enough?

In turn, a relaxed person is a gift to the world, are they not?

Consider how much more pleasant the world would be if everyone were relaxed: the guy you accidentally cut off in traffic; the boss wondering when you’ll finish that slightly overdue project; people waiting in line or at a restaurant table – perhaps the line or table you’re serving. They’re relaxed and smiling, full of encouragement rather than criticism. They’re world changers!

Now may we suggest you first get a hammock chair for yourself? It’s really the right thing to do! We back this up with a famous quote: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

When to consider buying a hammock chair?

Hammock chairs. They give you the same comfortable feel as a full-size hammock but in a more upright, seated design. While both have their advantages, there are certain times a hammock chair is the better way to change the world:

You have no space for a full hammock

No space; no problem. Chairs are ideal for front porches, small patios, indoor dens, bedrooms, crowded decks and for hanging from that small shade tree in the yard. Think of the possibilities. Awesome.

You’re a parent of young kids

Have you ever noticed how the sheriff in a Westerns sits with his back to the corner, so he can see everything going on around him? He’s not kicking back, feet up, hat over his eyes. Well, you’re the sheriff, and you’ve got potential ruffians to keep an eye on.

You have a child with disability

Here's encouraging news that can change the world for someone you love!  Both full-size hammocks and chairs are being used effectively as a tool in treating many children with disabilities, including autism in which brain imbalances affect both brain and body. A leading expert says, "A great portion of occupational therapy for autism focuses on sensory integration and one of the greatest tools is the swing.

Cost is a factor

While most are well made, their cost is cheap compared to hammocks. If you’re on a budget, then spend a little less to give yourself or a friend the ability to relax.

They’re a versatile gift

Here’s a winning combination: Most people don’t have a hammock chair, but they’d love a gift designed to help them relax. Find a desire, fulfill it and be truly appreciated! That makes easy shopping for birthdays, Holidays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations and housewarmings!

Easy installation

No contractors needed. You can do this! A tree limb, porch joist or chair stand is all you need for outdoor installation; for indoor installation, a ceiling joist or stand will do the job.

Why is buying a hammock chair a good idea?

Picture this: You just finished your hike, and find yourself on top of a hill on a beautiful Saturday morning, staring down at the beauty of nature and trying to soak in all its beauty. You're breathing in all the crispiness in the air and are maybe even thinking of spending the day at this very spot. What do you need to relax at this spot today? A hammock chair. Think about it - it's easy to use, light to carry, looks good and if it's big enough - you can sleep in it too! Need more convincing? Say no more.

It's good for your back

Since it basically forces you to sleep on your back, sleeping in a hammock can be very helpful for your spine and muscles. There will be less tossing around while you're sleeping and you might just finally get a good rest. According to a study from 2011, rocking makes you fall asleep faster, and the rocking motion of a hammock can lead to deeper sleep.  If you won't be doing much sleeping, don't worry - a hammock chair is extremely beneficial to your posture as well; the netting applies pressure all over your back so you basically get a free massage.

It upgrades your adventure

Being so portable and easy to assemble, a hammock really does upgrade your adventure. With a hammock, the time you would have spent on finding a big piece of land and setting up the tent can be spent on enjoying the view. The only thing you need is a comfy spot between some trees and some snacks.

Better sleep

Not only is there a physical benefit of sleeping in a hammock, but there is also a mental health one. Many people suffer from insomnia and have problems sleeping. However, there are various testimonials on the internet of people who claim that sleeping in a hammock cured their insomnia, although there isn't any concrete evidence. It is also a known fact by now that sleeping in a hammock puts pressure equally on all parts of your body and adjusts to your natural curves.

Easy to move

Being so lightweight and compact, you can easily move a hammock chair around, from one location to another. Hammocks and hammock chairs are versatile enough to move them around your house and backyard, so you can easily use them all year round. Use it for backyard meditation in the summer, or as a cozy reading nook during the colder days.

You can use it indoors

Speaking of indoor use of hammock chairs, there are three options on how to use them. Whether you choose to hang it from your ceiling, tie it around two supporting pillars in your house or simply use a hammock stand - having a hammock chair inside your home is a great idea and adds a particular decor boost to your home.
