If we always choose comfort we never learn the deepest CAPABILITIES of our mind or body.Wim Hof
Yesterday we did something quite mad.
And it was so good we’re gonna do it again today.
Ben and I jumped into our freezing cold pool (it’s winter here but even in Summer our pool is cold!) for some cold water therapy.
Ten minutes immersed to our necks.
It took a couple of minutes to get past the shock, after which I went kind of numb.
When it was over and I hopped out again, I lay in the midday sun for ten minutes to warm back up.
Oh, it was heavenly, and I felt SO exhilarated and alive afterwards. You know, that crazy feeling where you want to run around in circles at high speed? That kind of feeling. What a buzz!
Health goals! Hooray for that.
Why did we do such a mad thing? Cold water therapy is great for boosting your immune system, improving circulation and reducing inflammation.
How about you? Have you ever done a cold water bath or swim? Are you a fan? I’d love to know.
Love, little shivers, and big smiles, Nicole xx
