How do you relax?

Yoga, Tai Chi, watching TV reading a book.

I go to the sauna. I am sorry to tell you though your saunas here are not up to the standard they are in Germany.

There are lots of Sauna's in Berlin. I used to go to a family one outside of Berlin in Ludwigsfelde.

Word of warning you have to be naked for the sauna although not for the other activities.

I have to wear a swimming costume in the saunas in the UK....I mean come on...why on earth would one want to sweat in a swimsuit.?

gustavski if I went into a sauna I would probably have to come out in seconds how do u manage


I presume you mean with the breathing or are you talking about the heat.

I can stand the heat i have been doing it for years.

I find it helps the breathing especially the steam sauna.


Many years ago I used to use the sauna at a gym that I went to, it was lady's only I hasten to add. Most of us went in and came out wrapped in a towel but once we were in the sauna the towel was optional. Looking back, I now realise how typically British I am (or was) as mine came off or stayed on, in accordance with 'present company'! Nowadays it would stay put regardless of others!

I think you get to a stage in life when the towel has to stay on for the sake of others!

In Germany at all the family ones. In the sauna you get kids of say ten. Men and women well over 70 and everything in-between. I swear to you at first it was strange to me but it is so natural and no body gives a hoot about dangly bits.

If someone came into the sauna wearing a swim costume everyone would think (a) something wrong with the reproductive organs or (b a Brit) ha ha.



Watford girl, I totally agree, and I arrived at that stage some time ago!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
