Inspired by the Wim Hof method.
The Wim Hof method uses three important components:
- Breathing exercises
- Cold training
- Meditation / visualization
Taking a 5min cold shower everyday has lots of benefits:
- More energy.
- It boosts your immune system.
- Better blood circulation.
- Helps to lose weight.
- Makes your skin and hair healthier.
- Better your lymph system.
- Improves physical performances.
- Building willpower.
- Improves emotional resilience.
- Makes you alert.
- Helps against depression.
If you have a hard time keeping this up you can try to adjust the temperature as you go this way the threat becomes much smaller and more manageable, try to be your own hype man (or woman), focus on your breathing. You can also try to switch between hot and cold showers.
Try to build this habit for 30 days this way you have a goal to reach. But don't see this as a finish line after the 30 days. Try to keep this up.
