From reducing stress and eliminating diseases, a sauna can immensely improve human health. You may wonder whether it’s possible to build a sauna in a bathroom, but with a few clever adaptations and techniques, you can save up on your gym and sauna visits.
While creating your at-home sauna, be mindful of the fact that there’s no need to spend thousands on it. After all, you are making it to be more cost-effective. Here’s all you need to do:
1. Choose the smallest bathroom in your house
Heat and steam generate more quickly in smaller bathrooms than a larger one.
2. Soak a towel with cold water
Keep it handy when you need to cool off.
3. Use towels to lock air spaces
Close the door of the bathroom and use towels to block spaces where air may filter in or escape out.
4. Fill up your bathtub with hot water
You need extremely hot water so plug your bathtub drain and run hot water in it. Be cautious and don’t let it touch your skin.
5. Close your shower curtain or room while water is running
This will cause more heat and steam to transform your bathroom into a sauna-like atmosphere.
6. Sit back and relax
Now that you have achieved the sauna-like atmosphere, it’s time to relax and experience the warmth. You can sit on the side of the bathtub or lean over for 10-15 minutes. Keep the cold towel nearby to wipe sweat off.
7. Rinse with cold water to lower body temperature
After you are done, drain the hot water and rinse yourself with cool water in the shower. This will lower your body temperature and help you cool off.
