GET COLD PREVENT GETTING OLD!
I dont like the cold, I mean who does besides Wim Hoff. Since "The Iceman" has been doing his thang! and popularising ancient Tibetan breathing techniques (Tummo Breathing) scientist have taken a huge interest in the benefits of cold immersion therapy.
Many urban settings provide cold therapy know as Cryo, it has many benefits, but there is no need for expensive machines to get the same results as those provided by nature.
Lucky for us the Ormiston Gorge is going to be freeezzzingggg! In July and I am going to teach you Tummo breathing.
All you need is a few minutes, if you can focus on breath and stillness you will overcome these feelings of cold discomfort and reap the many scientifically proven benefits.
Those benefits include:
1. Increase endorphins, resulting in mental clarity.
2. Elevated physical and mental wellbeing.
3. Promotes anti-aging by boosting collagen and elastin.
4. Promotes weight loss.
5. Improves muscle repair and recovery while reducing inflammation and joint pain.
So if thats, not a good enough reason to get in that cold water then what is?
I have been preparing my body and mind for this winter. Taking cold showers through summer and as we approach the cold season. I have to say it had pretty amazing results, not only on my mental health but also on my body and muscle repair.
Have you ever taken an ice bath or cold shower? Let me know what your experience was like.
