Wellness. It’s the million-dollar word these days. To stay viable in such a health-conscious climate, companies of all shapes and sizes are employing workplace wellness programs and initiatives. And it’s truly a win-win situation. .
We all experience stress in our daily lives. From raising families and managing finances to juggling schedules and caring for loved ones. And that's all before we set foot into the office in the morning.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, a quarter of all employees view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives. The rising levels of stress in the workplace should be a cause for concern, as stress can lead to decreased productivity, higher staff turnover, increased health costs and employee burnout.
The long-term health consequences of stress for employees can include increased risk of depression, heart attack and stroke, obesity, depressed immunity, gastrointestinal problems, and longer recovery from illness. Unfortunately, the pace and intensity of modern life and work are not likely to change. So it's more important than ever to learn how to be more resilient and foster an environment of resilience for our employees.
There is a strong social aspect that comes with the Finnish sauna, which is why people prefer to take their sauna breaks with friends or family rather than on their own. Serious topics are avoided, yet the relaxed atmosphere allows for new idea generation or conversations about personal matters.
Hierarchies are essentially dissolved, so all are free to speak as equals. There is less need for lower ranking employees to feel nervous about making their contribution, or for higher-ups to dominate discussions. The only leadership position is deciding who gets to pour water over the coals.

Another coping mechanism that can be used during contrast therapy – and then extrapolated to everyday challenges – is teamwork. At Uforia, one of our main principles is fostering community. Sometimes this involves simply doing fun things together like going out on the water for a SUP paddle or sharing a meal. But at other times, it’s good to come together to do hard things with like-minded individuals. In doing so, everyone will push each other to go further than they could alone.
First-timers want to immediately jump out of the ice bath and struggle through their first exposure. Back in the sauna they bond over this challenge, gain courage from others’ success, and come back to brave the cold again. Most people tremendously outperform their previously imagined capabilities and the combination of multiple rounds followed by close quarters sauna discussions afterwards forges a unique bond and team mentality.
