When he said, "you could just pause this video and go take a cold shower". I got off my bed and striped, went under the shower, put my hand on the faucet. I laughed like a min and cursed for like another min, finally turned on the shower. IT SUCKED!!!
BUT I'm gonna do this for a month. THIS better change me.
EDIT: and yeah i am now watching the rest of the video (I went for the second one)

Charging in directly into the cold water can change your body temperature suddenly and you might have fever. Starting with the head first then the body is the better way imo

The shock of the cold only lasts a very short time then you're used to it. I've started having cold showers for a week , not sure if I can do it in the winter though

The reason its uncomfortable is because your hearts beats faster and it does that because cold is different and the heart needs to produce more oxgyn because you a re breathing faster

Lil’ story here: I have been taking cold showers for the past 2 years and I enjoy it a LOT. It is the moment of the day I don’t wait but when it comes, I’m happy about it. Some days ago my grandma passed out, and I was sad and I wasn’t feeling like taking cold showers, I would say to myself things like: “I will retake the habit in some days when I’m feeling better” but two long weeks passed and today I decided to retake it. But I wasn’t feeling it 😂, so i ran into this video and now I know I’ve been crossing the flinch very easy, I feel motivated to do it again! Hope this motivate you too! - AV

I work out in the morning and took a cold shower after to stop the red face and sweating so I could put my make up on. After a week of cold showers it feels INCREDIBLE! Body tingles all over, blood is pumping! I definitely recommend 😀

Your first cold shower was just like mine (which was this morning). Literally couldn't take a full breath and washed my hair with body wash haha.
It took me so long to be able to start washing I was in there for 9 minutes.
It felt horrendous at the time, but afterwards I felt way better than after a normal shower. Maybe just a sense of achievement...whatever, I felt good.

I've done this for something between 140 and 152 days, here are some tips:
- *SING* this is going to take your attention from the disconfort and help you breath better during your cold shower
-*CHARGE ON THE WATER* is better trust me
-*DO SOME PHYSICAL ACTIVITY* before its gonna warm up your body and help it get less tense under the water

I have a pool. so for a week, and every now and then I take a dip. and it's like 17 or less degrees in there, Celsius you know. but it's uncomfortable which kind of expands your comfort zone if you do it enough. I hate it, and I think people who've done it for months, hate it. I think cold showers are way easier than taking a cold bath. but I always do it around 8 pm, I'm always tired or kind of getting ready to go to bed. but it wakes my body up, I get excess energy and I feel so good afterwards. tho due to low blood pressure, it takes a few hours for me to completely recover. but it feels so nice having warm, dry clothes against my skin. try it. It'll teach you things

So, in 4:05 do you really want us to take seriously that guy with those big holes in his ears?
this was missing on youtube so i posted it
@Allotrios Apolis we'll just to be clear from my view many of our leaders who are considered intelligent or worthy of expression are very dependent on their appearance. makeup applies too, anything not natural like you said. but it doesnt change the expressed idea.

@this was missing on youtube so i posted it Yes, because it shows a person heavily dependent on the approval of others through superficial means as it is the external appearance.

Well all the "kinda easy" stuff like taking a cold shower is not that hard cuz i just tell my mind "it's just a cold shower, nothing's gonna happen, it's not gonna kill you, remember what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" and it does makes you stronger cuz you stop feeling cold easily and its feels so good after the shower and thats my motivation for for easy stuff in life.

Thanks for that

I love the cold shower at night! I have it cool to wash, then all the way cold to rinse.
I love it in the summer especially, getting ready for bed, you feel so comfy in your PJ’s... and CLEAN!

Once you get into the habit of taking cold showers, you will not feel the urge to take warm/hot showers.

At least this dude has a mounted shower. Try this shit with a handheld one. YOU have to hold it over your freezing ass, you have to resist not to throw it away. Not just stand under it.
