Benefits of Cold Showers

Cold showers have many mental and physical health benefits. A shower is considered cold if it is below 70°F. Here are some of the top health benefits:

  • Calms itchy skin
  • Increases/improves circulation
  • Increases endorphins
  • Helps improve metabolism
  • Fights common illnesses
  • Improve emotional resilience
  • Increases alertness
  • Helps muscle recovery
  • Increases testosterone in men
  • Helps drain your lymphatic system and gets rid of waste
  • It helps wake you up in the morning

If you are not used to taking cold showers, it’ll be easiest to slowly start getting into the habit of taking them. Start by lowering the temperature a small amount each time you shower. If it begins feeling uncomfortable, try practicing a breathing exercise or slightly increasing the temperature.
