👉The Truth About Cold Showers
A few months ago, my hot water heater broke. So, I had only cold running water in my home. It happened on a Friday afternoon and I needed to take a shower and go out for the evening. There was no time to call a plumber.

My only option was to “man up” and take a cold shower.

And that’s what I did.

Unfortunately, I quickly learned that maybe I wasn’t man enough because the water was damn cold. And certain parts of my body, it felt like ice water… if you know what I mean.

So I took a super fast shower and got out in like 5 minutes.

But something interesting happened – I felt really energized after the shower. It actually put me in a good mood and I felt refreshed the rest of the night.

And since the plumber couldn’t make it out till Monday, I ended up taking cold showers the rest of the weekend and to my surprise, I noticed a few other benefits.

Granted, this didn’t mean I was going to give up my regular warm showers.

So, let me quickly give you some of the benefits of a cold shower, as well as simple guidelines.
Benefits Of Cold Showers
More Alert
I already mentioned how it can wake you up. This is because of higher oxygen intake, faster heart rate and higher adrenal levels and endorphins, causing more alertness.

Reduces Inflammation & Improves Circulation
Cold water, similar to an ice bath — but not as powerful, lowers body temperature, reduces inflammation and improves circulation

This can also help boost recovery after a workout, by reducing soreness, aches and pains.
Good For Skin & Hair
The lowering of inflammation, is also good for anyone who has acne, itchy skin and is suffering from hair loss. All three conditions being in inflammatory response.

Plus, cold water doesn’t dry you skin and hair, unlike hot water.
Potential Weight Loss
Being cold is thermogenic and thus, it causes your body to turn up your temperature. In fact, your body will generate heat by burning brown fat, which can help with weight loss.
Doing It The Right Way
As with most things in life, there’s a right way and a wrong way to do things.

If you want to start giving cold showers a try, do so gradually.

Maybe at the end of a regular shower, turn the water to a cooler temperature for 2-3 minutes and see how you feel.

Next time, turn it down even colder, again for 2-3 minutes

The third time, turn it to completely cold water and do so for a minute and gradually work up to 2-3 minutes.

I don’t suggest taking cold showers for 10 minutes or longer. Unless you like it and you enjoy discomfort. But there won’t be any additional health benefits.

So there you have it, the benefits of a cold shower.

Thank you for watching. Please feel free to comment, like or share with your friends.
