I did the cold shower challenge for a month. Here’s what I learned

How could this guy put his body in extreme conditions and not die or go crazy of hypothermia?

I felt amazing. Somehow exposing my body to such an extreme change made me feel empowered and in control.

Who is control? You are.

Other benefits of cold showers that I forgot to list: your mirror doesn’t get foggy & you save on power bill.

Identifying excuses from real boundaries

“Oh! I cannot do this”.

“I would cry if I had to take a cold shower everyday”.

“You are crazy!”; “Why are you doing this to yourself?”

YOU decide if YOU want to try something new or if you want to DO/MAKE/EXPERIENCE something new.

Hey, beautiful! I’m glad I get the chance to know you better. Thank you!

Put beautiful, healthy, and life-giving things into your body.

How about you? What signs have you received from your body & how did you relate to it? Which topic of from today’s post did you like the most? Which one would you like me to explore more? Please, tell me in the comments or on Twitter.

UPDATE: I got a lot of feedback about this post and wrote a few more things about my Cold Shower Challenge here.
