WHY YOU NEED TO SAUNA IN THE WINTER
If you're the hibernate-or-migrate type, getting a home sauna can make your winter better – in almost every way. Here are the 3 top reasons why you need to sauna in the winter.
1. SAUNA LIFTS YOUR MOOD
Dreading the workweek? Do you find yourself dragging at the end of the day? People who spend time in their home saunas quickly notice that their energy level is higher – for longer.
In addition, if you're prone to depression or "the blues" during the winter, using the sauna helps to release endorphins. They're your body's mood-boosters – and they relax you quickly.
2. SAUNA BOOSTS YOUR HEALTH
Exercise can be a challenge any time of the year. But it's especially hard to find the motivation and energy to work out in the cold months. The outdoors aren't friendly, and the snooze button is awfully attractive in the morning. That's why you need to sauna in the winter.
A sauna can't replace exercise and all the benefits it gives you.
But there's one thing a sauna is good at: making you sweat. That cleansing sweat helps eject toxins from your body and boost your circulation. It's heart-healthy and leaves you feeling refreshed.
3. SAUNA ALLEVIATES SYMPTOMS
Nothing is certain but death, taxes … and winter flu season.
