During wintertime, our bodies become highly preoccupied with fighting the cold and supporting the immune system.
Do you ever feel tired or depressed in the winter months?
Did you know that the process of losing body heat can result in summer nostalgia, anxiety, muscle pain and chronic insomnia?
Many of us experience accumulated fatigue, faintness and feel like there is no energy left to deal with the daily stress. All we want is to escape from the dreary weather and to relax in a heated, cosy place.
In reality, these feelings are triggered by our innate sense of self-preservation, which reacts to the cold atmosphere and provokes the mind to search for a solution.
How to guarantee a healthy cold season?
One of the most effective ways to avoid a weakened immune system and improve your energy levels is creating a winter wellness spa. Bringing the spa heat into your life and home will help you give your health a helpful boost.
Saunas, like the Finnish sauna, are spa treatments that are perfect to escape from the cold weather.
Spending 15 minutes in 90°C of pure relaxation environment is all you need in order to avoid the winter flu and retain heat.
The sauna benefits in the winter
Researches show that our bodies have a positive response to persistent heat, such as in a sauna environment. The sauna bath has many great effects on our body and mind:
- Improves cardiovascular performance
- Stimulates blood flow and decreases blood pressure
- Aids in recovery after intense physical activity
- Cleanses body toxins
- Supports endorphin production, reducing stress
- Improves sleep quality
- Cleanses the skin
Overall, keeping regular sauna sessions can better prepare our bodies to deal with the cold temperatures.
It will also strengthen our defences to fight cold and flu, which is so important during these current times.
And it can even help us feel happier to face the winter blues, as it boosts our happy hormones!
Our spa experts tips
Saunas are great to keep you healthy, but you need to make sure that the one you use is free from chemicals.
Sauna sessions are usually sought with the idea to relax body and mind and to cleanse. However, if the sauna wood is not natural or treated with chemicals, you will get the opposite effect.
Many wellness facilities use cleaning substances that are hypoallergenic and not good for your health in general. So you should always check the spa policy, the quality of the sauna wood and materials used for its maintenance. This way you can ensure you not only have a relaxing experience but also a safe one.
if you enjoy using a sauna regularly, consider having your own sauna at home. It is the best solution to ensure safe and hygienic sessions – plus you get to use it anytime.
