Sauna or Break a Sweat

“…but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.”‬‬

Romans‬ ‭5:3-4‬ ‭NIV

“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”

1 Peter‬ ‭5:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Those who are well constituted in the body endure both heat and cold: and so those who are well constituted in the soul endure both anger and grief and excessive joy and the other affects.


10 Reasons Why You Should Sauna or Break a Sweat

  1. Detoxification: Sweating helps to rid the body of toxins through the skin, which can improve overall health and well-being.
  2. Boosts immune system: Sweating increases the production of white blood cells, which helps to strengthen the immune system and fight off illness.
  3. Reduces stress: Saunas can help to reduce stress by promoting relaxation and decreasing cortisol levels.
  4. Improves cardiovascular health: Using a sauna can help to improve cardiovascular health by increasing blood flow, reducing blood pressure, and improving arterial compliance.

  6. Relieves pain: Using a sauna can help to relieve muscle and joint pain, and can also reduce headaches and migraines.
  7. Improves skin health: Sweating helps to unclog pores, which can improve skin health and reduce the appearance of acne and other skin conditions.
  8. Enhances athletic performance: Using a sauna or sweating can help to increase endurance and improve athletic performance.
  9. Promotes relaxation: Sweating helps to promote relaxation by releasing endorphins, which can improve mood and reduce stress.

Heat increases circulation which helps with pain, stress, skin problems, breathing and everything associated with the body.

The uncomfortable heat of a sauna or steam room helps to reinforce a strong mind and spirit.

Intend to sweat a minimum of every 2-3 days.

If you don’t have access to a sauna, put on a hooded sweatshirt and run for 15-20 minutes. Keep the sweat going with push-ups and squats.

I try to do cardio, jiu jitsu or sauna at least every other day.
