Thanks! That is definitely my approach.I used to have to do this when I was in the Navy. For me personally? I found that the key was TAKING MY TIME getting used to it. A little more each day. A little longer each day.
Yeah everything about it is good for you. That dude Wim Hof Has an immune system so strong that they injected the flu into his bloodstream and he didn’t get sick. I just really needed to reduce inflammation in my spine and I’ll be happy.Every once in awhile when we knew we'd be swimming in super cold water, we'd have ice water submersion sessions. Three times a week for a few weeks -- sometimes longer -- until we were en route to our destination. According to the Navy, the best way to acclimate is to swim in ice cold water at least once every other day until you're en route. I also learned that cold water can stimulate growth of new stem cells as well as help keep the telomeres of your DNA strands extended which helps keeps you younger in the long run of life. Crazy stuff.
