So much in today’s society is about (trying to) be in control:
- Self monitoring apps. Walking, running, food intake, and breaths per minute <gasp!>.
- Everything programmed. What we watch on TV, music on the treadmill, and the GPS route to the behavioral psychologists office.
- Over scheduling, even down to the minute. “I will be home 8 minutes after 6 pm for dinner”.
Lack of spontaneity, and going with the flow, has produced a bunch of wound up, frail, and cranky people.

Sauna users leave their watches behind. They don’t need to time their rounds.
Sauna users go have dinner when they are done with sauna.
Sauna users know how to deal with crappy weather, a flat tire, or a twist in the road. Finns call it Sisu, inner strength.
Sauna users don’t need a $30.00 propane tank monitor.
