How to use a sauna?

... conclude? always end with a rest!
Why cooling is so important:
Good circulation makes the body stonger. Healthy blood circulation is crucial. To have more energy, for example, ant to warm up better. But that's not all! After all, your circulation is the means of transporting all those much-needed vitamins, minerals, proteins, sugars and fats to the right places in your body. In addition, a healthy blood flow also ensures the removal of waste products and the supply of hormones and oxygen. We could go on like this... In other words, you want to make sure that your circulation is in very good shape. Sweating in the sauna widens your blood vessels. Then, when you cool them down enough, they constrict again. This temperature change will make your blood flow faster and train your blood vessels. When you do this regularly, you will notice in time that your body is more resistant to ailments such as colds. You will generally feel stronger and more resilient.
Your pores close up nicely. When you are in the sauna, your pores open wide through perspiration. That's good, after all, it allows you to get rid of all the waste! But when you leave the sauna, it is important that you make sure your pores close again. If you don't, you are more vulnerable to bacteria.
It prevents headaches. You go to the sauna to completely relax and clear you head. So it would be a shame if you suddenly get a splitting headache that evening. If you suffer from a headache after visiting the sauna, this is usually due to an excessively high blood pressure. And this is due to insufficient cooling after the sauna. That cold shower makes your blood pressure go down, which reduces the risk of a headache.
