I want to start taking cold showers.

  1. I can be a bit of a wimp. I’d like some inspiration. Who here does them?
  2. You don't. Back in 2016 I had no warm water for three months. Luckily in late summer.
    It was so terrible I had to have had at least 4 beers before showering.

    That last sentence is grammatically correct ain't it? English is a funny language
  3. Boooooooooooooooooooo inspire me

  5. I've tried that years ago. Kinda did what Stiggy recommends, start warm then rinse cold. Alternately just progressively make your showers colder over a period of days/weeks. I'm more partial to a blast of cold right at the end but I don't do it as part of my routine.

  9. My husband calls me a lobster because I like to take my showers hot, hot, hot but because he and I shower together I start off hot and gradually cool it down until it's cold enough for him to get in.

    I think start off your usual preferred heat and cool it down while you're in there. Over time just gradually lower the starting heat until you're at your goal. I have heard that cold showers are better for you and in the summer time the hot showers can be uncomfortable even for me.

  10. You're lucky. I had to stop taking hot showers and baths after I started developing dyshidrotic eczema, a few itchy "bug bite" blisters, between my fingers and toes. It's nothing too terrible just a sign my skin doesn't like hot hot water.

  13. wet your head and feet first. they are the least "painfull" or least likely tomake you run out of the shower lol. once you got your head wet the rest isnt as bad.
  14. My father has been doing it for more than 20 years. It is important to reduce the temperature of water step by step.

  15. I've heard such good things about doing this.. I'm going to start this too. I think reducing temp step by step is the best way to do it!!

  16. IMO have the water hotter than you like until you feel too hot then blast it cold and 'rinse' the heat off, then go back to hot and repeat, they are called contrast showers.

    Hoping into a freezing shower is painful, especially mentally before you get in, very hard to stick with it (I dont).
