My face ... each time before hitting the cold waters 🏊🏽♀️❄️
& because I’m a sucker for learning and sharing the benefits
Here is why to do it:
- Heart rate variability
We can think of it as the accelerator and the breaks on a car (heart). How efficiently can it go from one extreme to the other?
The more efficient ... the faster, the smoother, the healthier the car.
🚘 = 💃🏽
Your body hyper-oxygenates, it’s forced to breathe deeply because it’s in survival mode. The body is put in a situation that at the beginning it feels extremely uncomfortable and the way your body will protect itself is by increasing the breathing rate to help heat itself up 🔥(I practice Tummo breathing prior to jumping in)
- Immune System
Body becomes stronger at fighting viruses 💀, you might even be able to stop/decrease medications.
***always consult your doctor***
- Natural Anti-depressant
Feeling foggy, lethargic, sad, angry ... just check out for yourself, take a 2 min cold shower and feel the difference before and after.
- Energy Booster
Natural Energizer that will shock your cells and organs to feel vital and alive
Ditch the coffee, pre-workout, energy drinks ... just take the cold shower.
Throw away lactic acid, body recovery speeds up, letting you get back to training 🚲 fast AF.
- IT’S FREEEEEEE
The beauty of nature,
I’ll just ask to be mindful of your environment and to give the space you occupy love and cleanliness in return.
The truth of it all ... swimming in cold waters brings back childhood memories
We didn’t do it for the benefits,
We just wanted to play!
So if none of the benefits sound appealing ... simply ...
With all the love ❤️
