Is mental toughness a muscle that you can get stronger with practice? More frightening, does that muscle get weaker if you don’t use it often enough?
This week I’m conducting an experiment on the benefits of a cold shower. To see how this experiment has been going so far, check out day 2 in the benefits of a cold shower.
I think that this experiment is waking me up to how little I push that toughness muscle on a regular basis. I think I really could be pushing my envelope more.
The Benefits of a Cold Shower – Day 3
While I still can’t attest to any physical benefits of this experiment, it’s really leading me to do a lot of thinking about facing fears and toughness.
I’m not sure what the end results of this week’s experiment will be, but I really consider anything that makes me think deeply about life to be a success of some sort or another.
And no, it’s still not getting any easier to turn that dial to the cold (in case you were wondering).
