Regularly hopping into the sauna has plenty of benefits for the body and mind, shows new research.

Studies done at the University of Eastern Finland show that hanging out in the sauna on a regular is really good for your health. After studying 1,700 men and women over the age of 50 who took a sauna bath 4-7 times a week, researchers found that the risk of heart failure decreased significantly, writes Yle.


Not only older people benefit from sweating it out in a dry heated room for a period of time because the research also reveals that these health benefits should be applicable to young people as well!

Still not convinced? Listen to this: it only takes 10-15 minutes for the positive effects to kick in, according to professor Jari Laukkanen at the University of Eastern Finland.

So prioritize your health, and enjoy some sauna time. And don’t forget the whisk and the sauna sausage!
