Cold Baths are so Hot Now
The hottest craze on social media is cold showers and cold baths. Although there is nothing new to this ancient practice, here are a few tips on why this is beneficial and how you could benefit from it.
Cold Baths Are Better Than Cold Showers
Ideally, an outdoor plunge in a lake, river, or ocean has always been the traditional setting for this practice, but if that’s not an option, a two-minute dip in a cold bath is better than a shower. Immerging your entire body gets the best results than the random spray of cold water over the body.
Taking a cold bath reduces inflammation that facilitates a fortified immune system. Having a cold bath will help balance hormone levels in menopausal women. After a cold bath, you should experience improved sleep quality and the production of endorphins.
The Shock to Your System Boosts Immunity
Regular routines with a workout routine and wellness plan are great, but if you want to prepare your body for sickness or any disruption to your immune system, it’s better to do something to challenge your lymph system.
Focusing On Breathing Helps With Mental Clarity
Before taking a dip in a frigid body of water, your mind will be on high alert in anticipation of the cold hitting your skin; once you’re fully submerged, try to focus on your breathing to distract your body from the cold. Surprisingly, you’ll find it helps you adjust to the cold and realize it’s not as bad as you thought it would be.
