Okay, so I just watched a video by Matt D’avella where he explains how taking cold showers are good for your overall well-being. And I thought to myself “this guy is freaking nuts“.
I’m certainly NOT going to turn the heat down to freezing cold just because some famous YouTuber says it’s good for my well-being. At least that was my thought until I came to the realization that it might actually be better with cold showers than we think.
Below is listed four important reasons why taking cold showers should be your next goal in life:
Wakes your body up in the morning
First and foremost, taking a cold shower in the morning will help you wake up and boost your level of energy. The cold water on your warm skin dilates your blood vessels which essentially improves blood circulation.
It’s better than coffee or energy drinks!
Boosts your immune system
There’s this dude called Wim Hof who is all crazy about cold therapy. He’s able to walk barefooted on ice without damaging his feet. He’s able to swim under the ice for long distances. But what’s most interesting is his ability to never become sick.
Taking cold showers increases the amount of white blood cells in your body – essentially protecting your body against harmful diseases.
Improve your overall willpower
Okay, taking a warm, long shower first thing in the morning is absolutely lovely. But we’re not here to feel good in the morning. We’re here to set up our day in the best possible way so you can look back at what you’ve done in the evening and feel satisfied.
Cold showers are certainly not easy. It’ll take a lot of willpower to do. But building your willpower is like building your body in the gym. Willpower takes time, dedication, and hard work.
Reduces stress levels
We’re living in a society where it’s pretty common to feel stressed due to social media, work, family life, etc.
You’d benefit with a cold shower due to its ability to cut the levels of uric acid and boost glutathione in the blood. It’ll help you reduce stress.
As you can see, there are a lot of benefits related to cold showers. And if you’re up for the challenge, I’d suggest you try it out next time you’re hitting the shower. It’ll be a fun, challenging task.
