Abstract [en]

The purpose of this survey was to measure a test groups experiences of natural outdoor life. How it affected their circadian rhythm, if they experienced any differences from their everyday life, how they experienced a short time of solitude in nature and if the overall experience affected their later affinity for outdoor life. The survey was made through a weekend expedition in nature with seven adults. During the expedition the test group did not have access to clocks or any electronic devices except from their flashlights. The test group’s circadian rhythm was slightly altered later compared to their everyday life. The participants that slept under a tarp instead of in a tent woke about one hour earlier in the mornings. The test group found solitude in nature during daytime relaxing. Compared to their everyday life the test group found their existence in nature less stressful. They also experienced that everything took more time to do and prepare than in their everyday life. The test group’s affinity for outdoor life was affected particularly regarding the food. Most of the participants expressed that in the future they will put more effort in cooking better food while in nature. Others expressed that in the future they would pursue higher living conditions in nature by increased knowledge. The conclusion of this survey might be that with increased knowledge and experience nature would be more accessible without transforming nature.
