Mental wellbeing is just as important as your physical health. With our busy lives, the ongoing impacts of the pandemic and the stresses of day-to-day living, focusing on mental wellbeing has never been more important. Below are our top tips for mental health and why more and more people are using infrared saunas to help improve their mental health & wellbeing.

Found—Space has been supplying top-quality saunas to Australians since 2008, making us Australia’s longest-running infrared sauna company. We’re dedicated to improving the health & wellbeing of Australians and just love to see the difference our saunas can make to people’s lives. Our range of saunas has been created with modern living in mind. They are meticulously crafted, are Australian electrically certified and our saunas all come with cabinet, heater and electrical warranties.

Our Top Tips To Improve Mental Health

Here are our top 10 tips for mental health and wellbeing:

  1. Connect with other people

  4. Walk in nature
  5. Give to others
  6. Practice mindfulness and meditation

How Infrared Saunas Can Help Improve Mental Health & Wellbeing

Taking a holistic approach to your health & wellbeing means looking after both your mind and body. And the good news is that infrared saunas are beneficial for both. Regular sauna use has been shown to reduce the risk of developing age-related neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Infrared saunas also activate the parasympathetic nervous system which helps to calm and relax us – making them an effective tool for stress management whilst also helping to improve sleep. Infrared saunas also have a positive impact on the endocrine system which responds to heat by increasing the production of beta-endorphins, (responsible for the “pleasure” and “analgesic” effects of a sauna) and norepinephrine which is associated with improved mood, focused attention and raised heart-rate).

Sauna sessions are a great time to switch off and have some screen-free time. The comforting warmth helps us to relax, let go of tension and shift you into a state of both physical and mental relaxation. Our saunas have bluetooth connectivity too so you can put on your favourite podcast (like Finding Space With Alex Tyson), an audiobook, some soothing music or guided meditation. With our range of saunas, you can also tailor your sauna experience to enhance mental health & wellbeing benefits with features such as colour therapy lighting and bespoke aromatherapy oils.
