I am just summing up my experience for taking strictly cold showers for the last three years.
The Cold Showers Benefits
I am not going to get all professor and science on you, these are just physical and mental things I have noticed about myself since taking 1-2 five minute cold showers a day. Taking one when you wake up is a great way to start the day, you do not really need a cup of coffee afterwards, and it makes you feel energetic. My skin has also been significantly less dry when taking cold showers as opposed too taking warm. It is much harder to get cold when outside or just in general is a plus, so I know for a fact it increases your pain tolerance.
This is probably the biggest benefit I have noticed is that my body fat went down when I started taking them, plus it makes you look more fit in general.
I did do a little research on them as well, basically saying if you are in the cold and uncomfortable more often you’re body produces more brown fat around you’re organs and brown fat cells are much healthier then white fat cells. These are more then enough reasons for me too keep doing these for the rest of my life.
So what are you waiting for?
The only tip I would give is to just try it for two weeks straight and just dive in and get used to it, pretty soon the cold wont feel so bad and it will make you feel great and look great.
