Sauna Therapy Before Bedtime

Aside from improving your sleep pattern, you can also use this treatment for relaxing your body from anxiety or the effects of stress hormones. Anxiety and effects from stress hormones stop your body from calming down before sleep.
During a sauna session, your mind and body are flooded with endorphins, preventing pain and cortisol.
For best more improvements with your sleeping pattern, use the sauna before you go to sleep. Use the sauna 15 to 20 minutes before your bedtime.

Five Stages of Sleep
This is when you are starting to feel drowsiness. It is when your mind oscillates between being conscious and unconscious. It is the beginning of the NREM (non-eye movement)
During this stage, your mind and body need to be relaxed if you want to experience drowsiness.
This stage is where you spend most of your 50% sleep time. It is when you are already asleep, but your eye continues to do little movements. As a result, it is easy for you to wake up with little sound or movements.
Stages 3 & 4
It is considered the deepest stage of sleep. If you wake up from these states, you will feel disoriented and groggy. During these stages, your brain waves move into a delta and slow down substantially.
It is the stage where your body releases the necessary hormones to regain the homeostasis in your body, and your cells begin to regenerate faster while your body undergoes general repair.
Your heart rate is lowered, and your core body temperature drops while your breathing becomes steady and slow.
This stage is when the dynamic flow of your body movements slows down, and your mind begins to become energized. It is when dreaming becomes most active.
All of the five stages of sleep are necessary for creating a healthy and vitality-filled internal atmosphere in your body. All your systems are healed and repaired during each stage of sleep.
Depending on a variety of factors, some may not experience some of the stages of sleep and might feel depleted in the morning.
Regular infrared sauna sessions induce biochemical changes in your body providing tranquil and restful sleep.
How Body Temperature Leads To Better Sleep
When we say sleeping, we don't mean by simply closing your eyes and drifting off to sleep. Instead, sleeping is a complicated process because there are a lot of factors to help you sleep or to stop you from sleeping.
Thermoregulation is a process that regulates your body temperature.
During the day, your body keeps your core body temperature stable. Your body cools down at night getting ready for sleep. Production of melatonin begins after the cool-down temperature signals your brain to do so.
Your body's temperature is continuously decreasing while you are sleeping, and it comes to its lowest point at midnight, and it increases in the morning to get your body ready for the next day.
For better sleep, your body needs to cool down, making it easier for people with a dark bedroom to go to sleep and harder for people to go to sleep during summer nights.
Having a cool body temperature is the main factor for a good night’s rest. This is why many people find it hard to get to sleep on a hot summer’s night, and the reason for having no trouble at all when the bedroom is cool and dark.
Most people hack the thermoregulation process by using the sauna or getting a hot bath before bed.
As soon as you step out from the sauna or hot tub, your body temperature decreases as the warmth on your body evaporates from your skin.
Your body is heated with infrared light, and as soon as you finish your session, your body quickly cools down resulting in your body being ready for a good night's sleep.
Calm and Relaxation For Better Sleep
Anxiety and insomnia are the most common reason for people to find it hard to have a good night's sleep. Constantly feeling nervous, worried, and anxious hinders your brain from falling asleep.
A sauna therapy before bedtime relaxes your mind and body, making it easier for you to fall asleep for a longer period. The calmer your mind gets, the better sleep you get.
