Tips for Healthy Living in the Fall with a Sauna
Posted on 26 October 2023
As the leaves don their vibrant coats of red and gold and the crisp air of autumn descends upon us, it’s time to embrace autumn wellness with an outdoor sauna. Saunas are fast becoming a coveted addition to backyards and outdoor spaces. They not only upscale the functionality of your outdoor retreat but also offer sublime health benefits. Explore an exhaustive range of saunas at SaunaFin, including the panoramic barrel saunas, raindrop saunas, and luna saunas.
Meanwhile, here’s how a sauna can provide a healthful start this fall.
Fall’s shorter days and longer nights can disrupt your circadian rhythm. Thankfully, an outdoor sauna session before bedtime can help regulate your sleep pattern. As your body temperature drops after the session, it mimics the body’s natural preparation for sleep. The sauna’s soothing heat also promotes relaxation and boosts oxytocin secretion. These happy hormones help lower stress and anxiety that hampers a restful night’s sleep.
Our muscles tend to tighten and become more injury-prone in the falling autumn temperatures. Warm barrel sauna sessions are incredibly effective in alleviating muscle tension and enhancing flexibility. The increased blood flow and circulation during a sauna reduce muscle soreness and improve post-workout recovery. Try stretching out your legs instead of sitting to maximize sauna benefits. Stay active and pain-free throughout fall and winter with a SaunaFin sauna by your side.
The shift to colder weather and reduced daylight can trigger Seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Saunas are a haven of warmth and comfort to beat the winter blues. The endorphins released during sauna sessions are natural mood lifters. The tranquil sauna ambiance also provides an opportunity for self-reflection and self-pampering. Try incorporating soothing aromatherapy and uplifting music for stress relief and banishing anxiety.
Better Skin & Hair
The dry autumn air can wreak havoc on your skin and hair. Thankfully, a sauna’s heat and moist steam help open pores and purify the skin. The increased circulation stimulates
blood flow to the skin and hair follicles. This leaves your skin with a radiant glow and also strengthens your hair. Use a natural loofah or brush your back, arms, and legs to stimulate the pores and boost circulation on the skin surface. Remember to hydrate well and moisturize post-sauna for soft, supple skin!
Respiratory issues like asthma and bronchitis return with the cold weather. Sauna humidity can help relieve congestion and soothe irritated airways. Regular sauna use also enhances lung function to safeguard your respiratory health during the autumn season. Increased white blood cell production with sauna usage also boosts immunity against other fall ailments.
Outdoor saunas are a fantastic addition to hack some cardiovascular benefits. The sauna heat induces mild stress on the heart, prompting it to pump harder. This mimics the benefits of light exercise and promotes better overall cardiovascular health. The sauna experience is known to enhance blood flow and reduce blood pressure. This is especially critical during the colder months when the heart has to work harder to keep you warm.
