Sauna stress and anxiety: my personal story

As someone who has dealt with anxiety for years, finding a way to relax can be hard. Until I discovered saunas, I had struggled to find effective stress relief.

At first using the sauna was uncomfortable. It took me a few weeks of trying before I became used to the heat and the high temperatures. Then one day something just clicked; turning up the heat felt like entering a sanctuary away from my worries.

Basking in the intense heat of the sauna is one of the most calming experiences I’ve ever had. My body temperature rises as I sit inside, making my muscles feel loose and relaxed and my breathing become slower. All it takes are 15-minute sessions here and there and my stress melts away.

I’ve also found that going to the sauna regularly has helped tame my anxiety attacks too. Since discovering this relaxing form of relief, those episodes have become less frequent and more manageable when they do come about.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed or anxious, I highly recommend giving saunas a try–you won’t regret it!
