10 Reasons Everyone Should Have a Sauna Blanket This Winter
I don't know about you, but it's starting to cool down in my neck of the woods. And with the winter weather on its way, I'm thinking about ways to stay warm.
And so far, 1 idea has stood out above the rest: a sauna blanket. It's cozy, it's warm, and most importantly, it's good for my health. And yours too. Here are my top 10 reasons for choosing a sauna blanket this winter.
- Keep warm amongst the winter cold
Sometimes, no matter how many layers you put on, you're still stuck shivering from the cold. That's what makes a sauna blanket so nice. The heat reaches deep into your muscles to keep you warm. It's like bundling under your favorite blankets with a built-in heater.
- Fight off seasonal bugs
No one wants to go into Thanksgiving with the flu. And you really don't want to miss out on Christmas because of a stomach bug. Turns out, regularly using a sauna can help you resist these seasonal bugs.
- Detoxify your body
Sweating is a great way to detoxify your body. And with all the time you'll spend indoors during the winter, it never hurts to clean out some of the toxins. Simply slide into your sauna blanket and let the blanket do all of the work.
- Get better sleep
Winter can make it tricky to get a good night's sleep. And over time, that can take a big toll on your physical health. But using a sauna blanket can boost your cell activity, which helps you get a better night's sleep.
- Relax your mind
This is relevant in every season — not just winter. Saunas can cause a dose of endorphins to boost your mood, relax muscles & rest your mind. Most folks know this as a "runner's high." It's the feeling you get after a good workout. And it's great at relieving stress.
- Heal your skin
Winter brings a host of dry air which can leave our skin bone dry. That's why most folks get chapped lips around this time of year. Using a sauna blanket can help moisturize your skin. So you not only feel better — you look better.
- Spend time with friends…
You can use a sauna blanket wherever you want. In the living room with friends or in the bedroom with your spouse. You can even grab 2 or more blankets so you and your loved ones can share the benefits this winter. They make a great gift.
- …Or get some much-needed alone time
We all love the holiday season. But sometimes, it's nice to get away from everyone for a while. Use your sauna blanket as a time to rest during the busy season. Your body (and sanity) will thank you for it.
- Boost your immune system
Experts show a serious relationship between sauna use and a boosted immune system. Saunas can boost your blood circulation, so your immune system can stay in tip-top shape.
- Take a moment to reflect
It's easy to get caught up in the hustle & bustle of our day-to-day lives. But sometimes, we need to take a second and think. And a sauna blanket is a great excuse to do just that.
Those are my 10 reasons to try a sauna blanket this holiday season. Let me know in the comments if you plan on trying any of them out.
