I dare you to take a 3 min Cold Shower

Why should you take a cold shower every morning for good health?

Everyone would benefit from taking a cold shower every day. Why is the cold so powerful? Because it can reduce the most significant health problem in the world, which is cardiovascular-related diseases. 

We never expose our skin to natural elements like we used to do to stimulate thermal receptors; they are located on the surface of our skin. When we take a cold shower, an electrical jolt goes through our spine to our most profound part of our brain. The cold shower stimulates all the vascular muscle tone and adjusts the blood flow. We have over 100,000 kilometers / 70,000 miles of tiny vascular channels, capillary arteries, and veins that are not in their best shape since we started using clothes. 

Benefits of taking a cold shower include:

  • Calming itchy skin.
  • Waking you up.
  • Increasing circulation.
  • Reducing muscle soreness post-workout.
  • Potentially boosting weight loss.
  • Glowing hair and skin.

For people with depression, cold showers can work as a kind of gentle electroshock therapy. The cold water sends many electrical impulses to your brain. They jolt your system to increase alertness, clarity, and energy levels. Endorphins, which are sometimes called happiness hormones, are also released. This effect leads to feelings of well-being and optimism.

Start with a 30-second cold shower after a warn one and slowly increase the time until 2 minutes. If possible, do it in the morning and daily.

A cold shower helps fight off common illnesses. Our bodies are designed to become resistant to the elements we are exposed to. For example, leukocytes help fight infection in the body. The shock of cold water in the bloodstream stimulates leukocytes. Taking cold showers can help your resistance to common illnesses, like colds and the flu. I wonder if this can help to prevent COVID too…
