By The Way
If you're on a weight loss regime, know that you shouldn't rely too much on the sauna. While the sauna temporarily makes you lose some weight through sweating, it's only water weight that is soon regained with the consumption of food and water. Instead follow a well proportioned diet, exercise regularly and use the sauna to help relax your body and reinvigorate your skin cells.

The right things to keep
Clutter in your house tends to clutter your mind. And when it gets too bad, the claustrophobia kicks in. So invest some time in getting organised.
