Meeting the cold requires a focused mind but once you make that decision, it only takes 1 minute to start gaining the benefits. All you have to do is turn the shower from hot to Cold. … EASY!
Why its good for you and how will it help you take back control!
• A cold shower will give you a cardiovascular workout by causing your arteries to dilate and constrict making them stronger. This will also lower your blood pressure and take pressure off your heart
• Detoxifies your body by contracting your Lymph vessels which pump fluid throughout and gets everything moving.
• Produces brown fat (instead of bad white fat, that clings to your body) which burns brightly helping you to lose weight
• You will be less likely to become sick
• Improve your mood by alleviating anxiety. The cold activates the sympathetic nervous system, increases blood flow to the brain raising levels of beta endorphin, norepinephrine and dopamine.
• Clears brain fog, leaving you alert focused and ready for anything • The shock protein that is produced can even help prevent the onset of dementia and in some cases reverse some of the damaging effects
• You will start taking back control of your mind and believing in yourself, knowing you have the strength and ability to overcome anything!
