Taking a cold shower in the morning, and feeling cold water pour over your body seems more horrifying than soothing. Cold water has all sorts of tangible health benefits, it increases blood circulation, releases endorphin, and could make you a more productive human—if you can handle it.
Out of the study’s 3,000 participants, two thirds chose to continue having cold showers and reported that it boosted their energy levels as much as a strong cup of coffee.
There is also an evidence that stepping into chilly water can you make you feel more mentally alert; as a result of the shock you begin to breathe more deeply which boosts your heart rate, increases circulation and releases endorphins
Next time you take a shower you might want to think twice about which way you twist the tap.
