Sauna at the Heart of Family Life – My Article

I have some exciting news! This summer I was contacted by Sutchitra Parker from phdmama. She asked me to be a guest writer in their new global and multicultural parenting magazine, the Parent Voice,.

I was excited about this opportunity and decided to write my first article about Finnish family sauna since it’s such an integral part of our culture.


I have shown you photos of our sauna building and it has raised many questions previously.

In the article I write about my childhood memories and what traditions I want to transfer to my children. I have also included some fun facts there. Like, did you know that there are more saunas than cars in Finland?

You can find the full article here.

Have a nice week end!

  1. Thank You for Your Sauna post. Sauna is important to us Finns. There are so many different kind of Saunas in Finland and every Sauna is the best in the world. My first memories are from Helsinki, being kid, when visiting with my late father some Sauna and sitting on upper bench. I remember saying to my father, that we are not the first to go down, and we did not although it was hot. 🙂

    Here are my two last Sauna posts:

    Happy Sunday.

    • Thank you for sharing your memories! I have little similar memories, when I stayed inside sauna so long that I had started to like I was going to faint and my parents had to take me out to cool down. 😬

      Have a wonderful sunday!
