Hammock Safety Tips

Be very careful getting in and out of hammocks this summer. If you are using a Mayan hammock (the kind with no spreader bars) stand straddling the hammock, spread the fabric or mesh as you sit, then gingerly stretch the hammock and yourself out. I flipped mine and landed on my back and hit my head by sitting on it from the side, so learn from my mistake.

A hammock is safe when it is : at least 4 meter long (lengh of cords excluded),
larger than your height ( at least 2 meter large), anchored at two points 4 meters apart so that the hammock has the combined shape of a V and a U. When you sit in it you can put your feet flat on the ground with your legs at the same angle as when sitting on a chair (this is important to get out of the hammock with no effort specially on your spine).

Most of all, and this is the mistake most users make: you are safe in a hammock when you are lying in it transversely.

I use a 6 meter long brazilian hammock as a bed indoors and all year round. I never had any safety problem and never woke up with a back acke. A cotton woven king size brasilian hammock is worth its price as when used properly it adapts itself to the shape of your body and rocks you and relaxes you so well that you will never want to sleep in a normal bed. It is specially confortable in the hot weather summer with the air passing through the cotton along your back to refresh you.

Sweet dreams!
