Magic Moment of the Week – Cold Water Therapy & Swedish Sauna
One of the great luxuries I have enjoyed whilst living in Sweden, is having a sauna in the home! I have been used to taking a sauna about three times a week and a dip in the sea at the weekends – all year round. Great for the circulation, the health of my heart and just the exileration of feeling so connected to nature. Just before I take a dip, I alway say a few words of gratitude to the water for allowing me into its haven and for giving me such energy and joy!
Since we moved to Bengtsfors and while I am waiting for my husband to build us a sauna 😉 I have enjoyed a dip in the lakes every weekend but NO sauna! Still a great experience but ooohhhh how I have longed for the heat! To my great delight one of my wonderful Yogis mentioned a “public” sauna not too far from where I live and in true swedish style it is built beautifully close to a lake so several dips and dops and can be taken in one session.
I can highly recommend Långeds Allmänna Bastu for a fantastic way to connect with nature, inspire your mind, body and spirit – just to get energised for the week ahead! Take a picnic with you and enjoy how your body shouts for joy on so many levels!!
