What are the benefits of sauna? This is something I have been pondering lately as I really miss my Finnish sauna. I grew up with a sauna in the house, just like almost all Finnish people do and it has always been a big part of my life. Here is UK the saunas are ok, but they are really not the same. The real and the best sauna for me is the wooden fire, summer cottage sauna. After heating yourself up, you dive into the fresh natural lake and afterwards you feel so relaxed and healthy.
It’s time of London marathon this weekend, so I thought it would be great to share some marathon recovery tips. Over the summer there are several running events taking place around Europe which are very popular. Taking on a challenge to run a marathon is a big commitment and preparation is key for a successful run. This is both a mental and physical challenge and especially if you are a first timer it can be emotional or even life changing experience.
It’s the beginning of the new year, so I thought it would be the best time to share some detox tips. January tends to be the most popular time for mini detox, especially after stuffing ourselves over the holidays. We all have our own tricks what we find works for our body, but these are some of the things I have used successfully. Depending of your preferences and lifestyle see what would be suitable for you and maybe give it a try.
Ageing is a blessing, even thought it has been portrayed like a curse in the modern media. We are petrified of signs of ageing and the eternal youth is the goal most are seeking. Historically women have been more concerned about their looks, but nowadays men are also facing pressures of looking good and youthful. Let’s face it, we all are under pressure to ageing beautifully.
I have always been interested in history and ancient healing materials. And methods We are always looking for the latest technology and ingredients, but forget that there is some magic in the ancient cultures and traditions. When it comes to skincare I am somewhat obsessed about the ancient Egyptians and the materials they used for the embalming process. The fact that their mummies have survived well preserved to the modern day says to me that they were on to something. Oils, spices and plant materials were widely used then are still available today and I would like to inspire you to try some of them and perhaps take a trip down to ancient Egyptian knowledge and culture.
Most of us have been touched by cancer in some form or another. We all know someone who has been diagnosed or even died from cancer.
