If you've listened to any health podcasts recently (like our 100% free Peak Performance Life Podcast), you've probably heard about the benefits of cold showers.
According to Medical Daily taking cold showers regularly may:
- Promote fat loss
- Improve immunity
- Lower Stress
- Lower chance of depression
- Increase testosterone
- Promote faster muscle recovery
- Enhance skin and hair
- Help you get better sleep
I can personally tell you that for me I feel ALIVE and have increased mental energy, alertness, and motivation to get stuff done after a cold shower.
I now LOVE the effects of my cold shower and I'm pretty sure I'll be doing them for the rest of my life...
BUT, I wasn't always this way.
If you haven't yet started with cold showers, I understand it can sound a little hard or intimidating.
At first the little voice in my head kept saying "but I love nice warm showers".
So I want to share with you what I feel is the easiest way that worked for me to start getting all these amazing benefits of cold showers.
First - You DON'T have to give up your nice warm shower. In fact, we have known for years about the benefits of going from hot and then to cold.
