Day 4: Cold Water Therapy

I came home feeling like crap yesterday and this unfortunately carried over to this morning. I still made myself take a shower, I didn’t do straight cold water – but – I did make myself leave it on the coldest warm water setting I could and then I still did some straight cold water therapy for a couple minutes before getting out.

I’ve been thinking about the progression of denial/discomfort I’ve been putting myself through over the last few months – yeah nothing drastic in the grand scheme but here’s what it looks like:

  • Cold water exposure at the end of my shower
  • Waiting for 2 hours after waking up before consuming caffeine
  • Taking a fully cold shower

Yeah wow, that’s not much. But given how difficult it was for me to start with just the cold water exposure at the end of a shower – I’m giving myself some credit.
