There’s a recent New Scientist article entitled “Saunas could heal your mood and your heart.” The article explains that “neurons that release the ‘happiness molecule’ serotonin respond to increases in body temperature, perhaps explaining the sauna’s pleasurable effects.”
We sauna enthusiasts are easily amused.
- We smile when we see it snowing outside.
- We laugh between sauna rounds.
- We are happy just looking up at the moon.
- We like the base line in Elvis Costello’s “I don’t want to go to Chelsea.”
