Thanks for sharing, Evan. Always good to know about more resources. I think the diving reflex is usually triggered by apnoae (not breathing) from full submersion into water rather than letting cold water splash on your face. Also, I believe bradycardia is not necessarily bad for everyone (as described in this article) but I think your point is a good one for people to be aware of.

I write about connection — with yourself and with others. I want to hear from you!💙Mailing-list:💗email:
