Mental Health Awareness Month: Take Advantage of the Sauna

Mental Health Awareness Month is wrapping up, but you can continue incorporating the tips we presented this month into your wellness routine every day! This week’s focus is taking advantage of the mental health benefits of the sauna.

Saunas are staples at any luxury gym and icons of Nordic culture, but the benefits go way beyond indulgence. Regular use of the sauna can aid in calming your nervous system, boosting serotonin levels, relieving stress, and lowering high blood pressure and cortisol levels. In other words, regularly incorporating a sauna session into your wellness routine can help decrease stress and anxiety. In today’s hectic world, any excuse to relax is more than welcome.

Champions Club members don’t have to travel to the icy fjords of Finland to find a world-class sauna. The Aquatics Center at Champions Club offers members a beautiful 104-degree coal-heated sauna! Feel like you are enjoying the best of Nordic culture right here in Southlake and take advantage of the anti-stress benefits of the sauna today!

If you want to experience the relaxing benefits of a sauna but aren’t a Champions Club member yet, stop by the Front Desk and ask for a Day Pass. Our Day Pass program offers youth, adult, senior, and group Day Pass rates starting at $7.00 for Southlake residents. Learn more here.

We hope you have enjoyed our Mental Health Awareness Month series. Make sure to take time to work on your mental health to keep you in tip-top shape. We look forward to being a part of your wellness journey!
