    I started 2 weeks ago every morning

    The Health Benefits

    1.) Improves circulation and immunity
    2.) Stimulates weight loss
    3.) Speeds up muscle soreness and recovery
    4.) Eases Stress
    5.) Relieves depression
    6.) Increases alertness
    7.) Refines hair and Skin

    Do not try this if you have a weak heart or poor circulation you will probably die from shock

    If you are of decent health I would recommend this too anyone

    do recall another chatter once saying turn the shower down a few degrees when finishing shower that cool your body off and wake you up more.

    Probably still beneficial but the shock treatment of going straight into cold works better for me

    From what i read it's the cold receptors on your skin sending electric impulses (kinda like survival mode) to your brain that makes you feel aware and alive after

    Don't think you will get the same affect by getting in a hot shower then slightly reducing temp but would imagne it is still good to do for circulation and skin and hair ect

    I do the same when I see you, MrsD! :p:p:p

    Seriously, though, it's a great idea - I have been having cold morning showers for 2 years now, one before my 10K run and one after. EVERY weekday morning.o_O x

    Awww. Uncharitable! I post / reply because I want to or because something interests me; it's not because I am being recruited.:(
