Okay, it might have taken four days, but the impossible is starting to happen. I’m starting to find a comfort zone in the cold section of the dial for showers.
If you’re just joining me now, I’ve been experimenting with the benefits of a cold shower. To see how this had been going for me so far, check out yesterday in the benefits of a cold shower experiment.
But, back to my finding a crazy comfort zone.
I start off with the shower on cool and slowly advance it towards freezing cold over the duration of my shower. I’m finding that there’s a point about a notch or two above as cold as possible which is actually quite comfortable. It’s bracing. Bracing is a good word for this experiment.
Invigorating or refreshing. Strengthening.
As scary as it is, I might be growing to like taking showers this cold. They don’t have the hedonistic comfort of a warm shower, but they can serve a useful purpose. I certainly feel awake in the morning after I take one!
