It may be the last thing you feel like doing when you jump in the shower, but did you know that washing under cold water can provide a plethora of health benefits?

From boosting your immune system to encouraging weight loss, increasing alertness to stimulating anti-depression hormones, the advantages are certainly worth taking note of.

Try gradually decreasing the temperature of your water over the course of a month and you will hardly notice any difference. Alternatively, have two cold showers a week and reap the best of both worlds!

I don't have cold showers but I always end with cold water, especially in the winter. Not only is it refreshing but it closes the pores that were opened with the warmer water. When the weather, and my house, is cold, I am warmer after a shower than before.
That is a great idea! Thank you for sharing! It's surprising how invigorating you feel afterwards!
Exactly! Thanks for trying it! I don't know how many people I have told, but no one else has dared. Happy that you had the same beneficial results as me.
