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.
How do you do it? How do you avoid sweets, grains, and all the junk that’s out there. The answer, while simple, is not accomplished in a very easy manner, but the reward is amazing. The same can be said of how you approach the food that you eat. I don’t have to avoid eating cake because I have changed my identity in that I just don’t eat cake. If someone offers it, I can easily avoid it because cake is not something that is in my diet and it’s not something that makes me feel good.
