Make 2021 Your Year of Wellness with a Sauna
2020 was supposed to be your year. You had all of these great plans. Then, COVID happened. You got stuck at home for months on end. You had to learn how to balance changes at work, home, and school. Like most people, you started eating more and exercising less. It’s a new year and you’re wondering if you can make this year different. Good news: you can! Make 2021 your year of wellness with a sauna.
Detox Your Body
This time of year, everyone’s working on their New Year’s Resolutions and you hear about all sorts of products: juice cleanses, detox teas, diet pills, whatever the new fad is to help you meet your new fitness goals. But what if you could detox your body by just… sitting?
It’s no secret that the heat of a sauna makes you sweat. What you may not know is that while you’re sweating in a sauna, your body is also getting rid of toxins. You can spend time in a sauna daily, so you can work to detoxify your body every day while still enjoying your favorite foods (just make sure to drink plenty of water). Don’t waste money on a passing fad; get a sauna, instead.
Relieve Your Pain
Let’s be honest: while skiing in the snow is fun, the cold weather can be painful on your joints. No matter your age, the cold weather can take a toll on your body (especially if you’re not that good at skiing).
Studies have shown that saunas help provide pain relief for a number of chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia, as well as just your every day muscle soreness. It can even help reduce inflammation. Plus, if you suffer from painsomnia, the pain relief and relaxation from spending time in the sauna will help you get a better night’s sleep.
Keep Your Heart Healthy
Your heart is one of the most important organs in your body, so it is definitely one you want to keep healthy. Relaxing in a sauna can help you do that. Research shows that the heat from a sauna opens up your arteries and helps your heart pump as though you are exercising. In fact, sitting in a sauna burns up to twice as many calories as you normally burn sitting!
The benefits don’t end when you leave the sauna, though. Regularly spending time in the sauna can reduce your risk for heart attack and other cardiovascular issues. It also helps reduce your risk for high blood pressure and relieves stress, both of which are good for the heart.
