Started 1 minute cold showers this week. The last few weeks of building up have paid off since it is quite doable now, albeit I don’t look forward to them.
What I have noticed is only now am I starting to actually experience the cold. Before now, what I was really experiencing is the shock of suddenly introducing the cold. But now, as I hit a minute, I feel the cold staring to set it. It’s not bad, actually. It comes as the shock phase gives into it. I still feel a little shock. as I turn to allow my whole body to make contact with the water.
