When you say small hot room it usually refers to sauna. It is a small room designed to be heated to very high temperatures with well-controlled humidity and it is a place to experience dry or wet heat sessions.

Currently I have two flatmates who are enrolled to the gym with a goal of getting in better shape. Each month they are allowed to bring one guest to the gym and it happened that I was one their guest for about two times already. And since I don't really need to burn calories so I prefered to stay at the pool and sauna.

I hate cold places but the more I hate a closed room where I can't almost breath just like a small hot room which is sauna. But thinking of it's benefits I have entered a sauna for the first time in my life and stayed their for about 20 minutes. At first I couldn't really breath especially when a small amount of water was splashed on a hot fragrant rocks at the corner of the room. Few minutes later I was already sweating and I felt like all the toxic of my body are coming out from pores of my skin. I felt so relaxed when we left that small hot room.

Oh yeah since I was sharing you these let me as well share you the benefits of sauna. It is actually so relaxing and leaves your body soothed and your mind serene. It's main advantage lies in the fact that it promotes sweating, helping the body to rid itself of toxins. It is also believed that exposure of the skin to heat stimulates the production of white blood cells and strengthens the immune system.

And all other benefits of sauna includes;
  • increases and improves the rate of blood circulation and breathing.
  • it burns about 300 calories per average session so it  will help you lose weight and stay fit and healthy.
  • a profuse sauna-induced sweat followed by a shower cleanses your skin far more thoroughly than just taking a shower.
  •  the heat and humidity of the sauna diffuses the pain and relaxes tired muscles.
  • it is essentially a place to relax. Regular sauna adepts all agree that it effectively helps relieve physical and mental fatigue and stress.
