#3.  Your personal homemade sauna.

One of my grandmothers, Emma Nyman Windquist, was from Finland. I love saunas. It must be in my blood because in Finland, there are more saunas than people. Make a homemade sauna in your bathroom by shutting the bathroom door and windows. Then turn the water on the hottest possible with no plug in the tub. Bring a book and your favorite pillow in with you to sit on the floor for about 20 to 30 minutes, slowly and fully breathing the steam in. The culmination of any good Finnish sauna is to jump in a lake or swimming pool, if you have one, cold or not.
