During my daily 30 minute infrared sauna sessions I’m constantly amazed at how much I sweat. Literally, each and every time I’m astounded like it was my very first session. You are literally pouring sweat from every pore of your body at an incredible rate. Here’s how I know, by the time I have wiped my thumb off on my towel to the time I try to use my iPhone, there is already too much sweat on every pore of my thumb to use it (make sure you have extra towels laying around!)
With all of this sweat, your body needs to replenish itself with gallons of fresh water. And drink water you will! When I’m taking a sauna session everyday I am constantly drinking water and tea all day long. I feel so much better, energized and focused as a result!
Drinking a lot of water has incredible health benefits. You’ll speed up your metabolism, boost your immune system, improve digestion, absorption and transportation of nutrients, increase circulation, boost the creation of saliva and the maintenance of body temperature. Studies have shown that when people drink water before a meal, they lose weight faster than those who didn’t drink water. Extra water helps suppress your appetite and eat less by making you feel full, and it may also boost metabolism.
Drinking water also makes us feel refreshed and actually improves our mood. Mild dehydration has been shown to negatively impact your mood, so instead of drinking coffee, drink tea and instead of drinking soda, drink sparkling or seltzer water (my favorite). By taking a sauna everyday and you’ll feel 100 percent better and you will feel healthy (a very underrated feeling).
