its high quality of life progressive politics and happy citizens some believe that the secret to Scandinavian health lies in the ancient tradition of winter swimming from the western tip of Norway to the eastern shores of Finland locals jump into the freezing Baltic Sea in the middle of winter often fully nude of course they usually warm up immediately afterward in a seaside sauna from a neurological point of view this practice has been proven to release endorphins serotonin dopamine and oxytocin in the brain all chemicals related to happiness other benefits
include enhanced blood circulation a boosted immune system and an increase in calories burn another bonus most swimmers finish their dive with a customary trip to the sauna which not only helps to relax the mind and body but also to release toxins however all these benefits may not be enough to lure a skeptic into the freezing waters Singapore is an island city-state that is renowned for its opulence and thriving business culture it’s unsurprising that it is home to many of the world’s most lavish villas and hotels one of these is the Marina Bay Sands pool sitting atop a skyscraper overlooking the city it holds the distinction of both the world’s highest pool and the world’s highest infinity pool at 340 meters high
