Jason Mraz checked in with fans on his Freshness Factor Five Thousand blog on Tuesday (December 7), talking about items he doesn’t want from Santa Claus for Christmas, including a portable sauna, leading him into a discussion on sweat therapy. The singer songwriter tells readers:
Whenever I’m in a Sauna, I like to say, “It’s like a sauna in here.” even when I’m by myself.
I once shared a Sauna with Ingrid Michaelson when we were on tour together in Sweden. The Swedish love Saunas. I don’t recall the Sauna ever getting hot and we ended up just sitting there in the wooden box talking about how boring it was.
Tonight I had a Sauna all to myself during a spontaneous spa visit. I decided to reward my body after sitting behind the wheel for 2000 miles. The privacy of the solo-sauna gave me an opportunity to sing and chant until I got dry mouth and shortness of breath. Apparently you lose a pint of water for every 20 minutes you spend in the heat.
