Your health, and the health of the ones you love, depends on the small choices you make to live healthy regularly over time. The way to be successful in developing healthy habits lies in finding a few foundational things that are doable; that you will actually enjoy.
We want to let you in on a secret we don’t want to keep: saunaing is a wonderfully enjoyable habit that has a multitude of health benefits. This “sauna lifestyle” becomes a way of life that helps you feel better, do more of what you love, and live the full active life you desire.
Once you realize the incredible benefits to using a sauna regularly, you’ll see that it isn’t a luxury, it’s an important wellness tool you’ll want to make part of your way of life; just like eating healthy and exercising.
The term “lifestyle” means a way of living that reflects the attitudes and values of a person or group. Our lifestyle affects choices in what we wear, what we own, what we spend our time doing, and how we prioritize our lives.
Living an infrared sauna lifestyle means that feeling good and being healthy is a priority. When you sauna regularly, it reflects an attitude that you take your health seriously, you prioritize taking care of yourself, and that you are committed to investing in a habit that will help you continue to feel good so that you can continue doing what you love as long as you can.
Luxuries are things we want but don’t necessarily need and can do without. Many of our customers and partners feel so good when they sauna regularly that they say they can’t live without their saunas. The health benefits that Sunlighten saunas provide the body and mind make infrared an indispensable wellness tool that also happens in an exceptionally beautiful and enjoyable space.
An infrared sauna is a foundational part of a wellness lifestyle. We know nutrition is important to fuel our bodies properly. We know exercise is important to keep our bodies operating well physically. We know sleep is imperative for our body’s systems to function. We need to know the value of infrared saunas for the health of our bodies.
Infrared sauna therapy helps the body detoxify and increases circulation with such powerful positive effect that cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn says it would be a multibillion-dollar drug if it were a pill. “The ability to heal endothelium and improve symptoms and prognosis for congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease is remarkable. Sunlighten saunas are the only infrared saunas clinically shown to temporarily lower blood pressure and reduce belly fat, both contributing factors to a healthy heart.”
And, infrared saunaing goes beyond soaking up some heat and detoxing. The health benefits include increased immunity and general wellness, relaxation and mental health, anti-aging and skin rejuvenation, muscle recovery and temporary pain relief, as well as supporting a weight management program.
You can enjoy versus endure your experience. Infrared saunas are not just sweat boxes. Traditional saunas are sweat boxes: they use high heat to increase the temperature of the ambient air to get hot, uncomfortable, and sweat as much as possible, often leaving you feeling drained and exhausted.
Infrared saunas are enjoyable warmth that create a pleasant experience while infrared waves gently warm your body from inside so that you sweat deep and productively from within, without discomfort.
You leave feeling energized and restored. In an infrared sauna, the infrared waves are raising your core body temperature, slightly inducing a state of “hormesis” or putting our body in an elevated “get well” state. The time you spend there is healing for your body. It allows for a cellular level detox, clearing out environmental toxins and hormone disruptors. This helps you increase immunity, improve sleep quality, decrease depression, aid in heart health and healthy aging. The enjoyable experience of an infrared sauna combined with the wide range of benefits to your mind and body make this a tool you can use 2-3 times a week or every day.
