    Hammock Swaying Relaxes You

    Here is a link to an article I ran across. Of course, real hammock users already knew this. It is just nice to have scientific proof.

    I hope y'all find it entertaining!

    As part of this thread what causes that? Is it the trees that sway because of our weight between them? Are we doing it ourselves? Is it the breeze causing it? These are questions that may never be answered but I'm hoping someone can. Let us all know.

    Hey sorry I didn't read the article yet but I will say that I like swaying in the hammock. When I lay down I like to give myself a push and sway for a while. On the other hand my brother does not the like the swaying at all and it's one thing he dislikes about hammocks. If I just come up with a little motor to swing the hammock. What about a dutch hammock swinger? That sounds like a winner.
