Staying energized

Taking a cold shower can be a great way to stay energized, but the science is still unclear on the effects on your body when you take the cold shower.

That said, there are some reasons why a person might want to turn the faucet all the way to cold.

The potential benefits of a cold shower

  • Some people say they feel more energized and alert.
  • Athletes say cold showers have a positive effect on muscle recovery. A 2016 study showed that cold showers positively impacted exertional hyperthermia, meaning high body temperatures resulting from intense workouts, although an ice bath is far superior.
  • Some advocates of cold showers say that cool temperatures can boost the immune system.
  • A splash of cold water can boost circulation, calm itchy skin and shrink pores leading to better-textured skin.

The potential risks of a cold shower

A few minutes of frigid water shouldn’t do any harm. However, for some people, it can be dangerous.

  • A cold shower is shocking and can trigger your sympathetic nervous system, which is your fight-or-flight mechanism.
  • Someone with a preexisting heart condition can find that a cold shower creates unnecessary stress.

However, instead of expecting health benefits from a cold shower, consider incorporating exercise into your routine, which can help boost your immunity and improve your mood.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
