Taking cold showers on a regular basis, especially first thing in the morning after waking up, is one of the most effective strategies to get into "peak state" and start the day. But why would anyone want to begin this arduous process of acclimating to the cold, especially first thing in the morning when stepping out of a pleasant, warm bed?
To begin with, there are numerous health advantages. Cold therapy has been demonstrated to have beneficial benefits on the cardiovascular and immunological systems. It will improve your concentration and focus, increase your energy levels, and improve your mood by releasing endorphins.
The most significant feature of taking cold showers on a regular basis, however, is that it strengthens the willpower and discipline needed to push through opposition.
There will always be some form of opposition in life that tries to keep you from moving outside of your comfort zone. But keep in mind that resistance is the finest indicator that something is worthwhile and will cause you to improve.
So, if you can conquer your aversion to being exposed to the cold on a daily basis, you'll have laid a strong foundation for facing even more difficult challenges.
