Thanks, Ivan! I read the article you shared and it’s fascinating. I had not thought to try combining breathing techniques into my cold showers though I had heard of Wim Hof and his methods but you’ve definitely inspired me to explore the breathwork side more. I also tried your core first technique today and a little too soon to tell but I’ll keep at it and see if it has a different impact on cold tolerance. I think it may be that people looking to be calm and more awake could go face first and people looking for better cold tolerance should try core first. Thanks for sharing your experiences!

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