How a One Person Sauna Can Replace Your Morning Cup of Coffee

Posted by

What if you could replace your morning cup of joe with something more relaxing, but with the ability to boost your productivity and energy in the same way or better?  Learn all about the benefits of a one person sauna and what makes it an excellent alternative to caffeine.

America’s Coffee Addiction

There’s nothing wrong with the occasional espresso or creamy latte. In moderation, coffee can help with heart health, improve concentration, and even bring pain relief. However, if you depend heavily on caffeine just to function and stay alert throughout the day, it’s time to re-evaluate your relationship with coffee.

Experts are starting to caution Americans about their coffee consumption. On average, the United States consumes a minimum of 400 million cups of coffee every day. Ingesting too much caffeine causes many problems such as:

  • Stress, anxiety, and restlessness
  • Dehydration
  • Heartburn
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Headaches and hallucinations
  • Insomnia
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Panic attacks
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased focus
  • Inability to absorb nutrients

Worse, you eventually build up a tolerance to coffee and caffeine the more you drink it. Over time, you’ll need to drink unhealthy amounts just to feel its effects. If this sounds familiar to you, do your health a favor and consider replacing your daily dose of caffeine with a sauna session instead.

Infrared Sauna: A Healthier Way to Kickstart Your Day

Infrared saunas use infrared waves to heat the body from the inside out. This intense heat and the sweat it produces give way to a host of physical and mental benefits that rival those of coffee.

  • Focus and Productivity

The hushed, spa-like cabin of an infrared sauna will help you mentally prepare for the day. Sauna users report that a short 20-minute session after waking up is enough to fuel them and increase their concentration on the tasks ahead.

  • Energy Boost

As your core temperature skyrockets, so does your blood circulation. Feel a rise in energy as your blood delivers oxygen and nutrients more efficiently to the rest of your body without the need for caffeine. Better still, saunas don’t come with the unpleasant energy crash that occurs once coffee leaves your system.

  • Calorie Burn

Early-morning exercise is proven to increase energy levels, but if you’re not in the mood to hit the gym, you’ll be happy to know that sitting inside a sauna mimics the effect of moderate exercise. Your heart rate speeds up, you start sweating like crazy, and you experience the mental and physical high of a workout without much effort.

  • Better Mood

A lot of people claim that drinking coffee stabilizes their mood and makes them feel more positive. However, did you know that at a certain point, caffeine triggers stress, depression, and anxiety?

In contrast, saunas are proven to boost mood without these negative risks. Some studies even show that regular sauna use helps lower symptoms of depression and anxiety and floods the brain with endorphins, also known as feel-good hormones.

Infrared saunas can make you feel lighter, brighter, and more energized in a way that even coffee can’t match. Break free from caffeine with an infrared sauna from our Freedom Collection only here at JNH Lifestyles!
