21-Day Cold Shower Challenge

About a month ago I wrote about 7 – Life Hacks that have significantly improved the quality of my life. Number 5 on that list is cold water therapy! Taking a cold shower or bath has a lot of health benefits such as; improving circulation, strengthening the immune system, improving sleep, improving your cold tolerance, improving your mood, increasing testosterone, stimulating the release of growth hormone, and improving the health of your hair and skin among others things…

So as you can see, there are lot’s of “sciencey” reasons why you should take cold showers, but the main reason is to toughen you up! Seriously, we live such sheltered lives especially when it comes to temperature. We tend to spend most of our time in temperature controlled buildings and vehicles where the temperature is somewhere between 65 and 70 degrees. And when we do experience anything outside this 5 degree window we immediately start complaining that it is either too hot or too cold.

I challenge you to stop being such a sissy and start becoming a stronger MAN or WOMAN!!! So if you are up to this challenge, I guarantee by the end of it you will be much tougher, and have a greater appreciation
