This post made me smile to read. It's funny how such a thing as "cold showers" is actually a desirable activity, but it works. Thanks for sharing your insights.

I grew up in a beachside town in Australia, and noticed at a young age that I felt energised and happy after surfing in the morning all through our tolerable winters. Cold showers have always just been a part of enjoying that feeling of stepping out and going "ahhh".

What's been interesting is following the various white papers being published around this. There's the danger of over-extending "the science behind" the case for potential benefits of cold showers and ice baths. But it's not exactly a financial or resource stretch to accomodate it, and I can't imagine life without it. Although I'll admit, it was a little harder when living in Finland!

Haha, glad you liked it. Apparently there are loads of benefits for the elderly population too, helps with depression. I remember watching a BBC documentary about it, I have also seen loads of elderly peeps open swimming in Hyde park London whilst eating my lunch, in all weathers, they know... Anyway, it’s getting close to that time again.. 🚿 πŸ₯Ά ⚑️
