5 Times When a Sauna is Most Welcome
Much of adult life is enduring things we’d rather not do. Here are 5 times when a sauna could be the light at the end of your tunnel.
#1: After the annual physical
There are few things less relaxing than sitting naked in a lose paper gown on an examination table and few things more relaxing than sitting naked on a wood bench in a hot room. Need to reclaim some dignity? Hop in the sauna.
#2: After an overnight flight from Hong Kong
Or after any flight from anywhere really. After sitting in a narrow seat that only partially reclines and has less knee room than the Dumbo ride at Disney World, take some time to stretch out fully and breathe deeply from an air supply that hasn’t been recirculating in a sealed cabin for the past 12 hours.
#3: After hosting a birthday party for 25 two-year-olds
Go ahead. Shut yourself up in the quiet of the sauna until your ears stop ringing. It’s also a good place to feel clean again after coming in contact a seemingly limitless array of bodily fluids.
#4: After the office Christmas party
There are some people you never want to see drunk. Or doing the limbo. Or both at the same time. Have some images you want to get out of your head? Let them float away during a time of blissful meditation.
#5: After cleaning your teenage son’s bathroom
It smells like a locker room no matter what you do. Do what you have to do in there and then retreat to the sauna.
