• Cold Exposure and the Health Benefits it Can Provide

    Cold exposure can provide numerous health benefits, including enhancing brain function and boosting immune system responses. Taking regular cold showers is a great way to get started with cold exposure. Begin by taking short (2-4 minute) cool showers and gradually decrease the temperature over several weeks. Cold plunges, where one submerges in an above-ground pool or large container filled with ice water or snow, can provide even deeper health benefits than regular cold showers. Before entering the water for a cold plunge, take some deep breaths and follow a good meditation to set yourself up for success. Always check with your doctor before attempting any new health practice. Cold exposure might sound intimidating at first, but the rewards can be huge so don’t be afraid to take the plunge!
