Day 21: Start a new habit
Repetition is key. Pick 3 routines you want to work on, and carry them out for 21 days. Turn tomorrow morning into a habit!
We all could use some extra power in the morning sometimes. Did you know that taking a cold shower in the morning can help you achieve just that physically and mentally?
Starting your morning with a cold shower increases your alertness and focus for the rest of the day. Why? The scientifically supported Wim Hof Method explains that cold stimulates your body to take deep breaths, which decreases the level of CO2 throughout the body, helping you concentrate better. On top of that, it is a true immune-booster, improves your sleep quality and stimulates the production of feel-good chemicals in your brain.*
Also, starting your day with completing an uncomfortable action gives a boost to your self-confidence. After this victory, you are ready for whatever the day has in store for you! Start off easy by adding 10 seconds of cold water at the end of your hot shower, and plus them up during the week.
