 My new morning routine is getting into this 39 degree @coldplunge 💪🏽

I have been doing morning cold showers for 2 years now but it wasn’t enough. I can’t lie, I was a little nervous about getting into this thing LOL I knew all my aches and pains would expose themselves but DAMN it truly feels amazing! It’s important to focus on your breathing and know that the ache of the cold doesn’t last long. Once you’re 1-2 minutes in you start to feel incredible. I recommend that everyone get into cold water as soon as they rise!

The benefits- Increased immune response, reduction of free radicals, faster muscle recovery and repair, better sleep, Improves the body’s antioxidant capacity and increases white blood count plus it increases mood, regulates blood sugar and aids in fat burning🙌🏽

EVERY DAMN DAY we must do things that challenge us. Those who run from fear also run from their destiny!

HAPPY MONDAY! LFG💪🏽
