My final cold shower has been taken and it actually wasn't that bad. Could be because I knew I didn't have to do it anymore, or because I was slightly inebriated. Or maybe I am finally acclimating to the process. Whatever the reason, I found it much more tolerable tonight. Thus, when I googled "cold shower" to find a pic for the blog and found links to the benefits of cold showers, I couldn't resist taking some time to read. (Probably should have done this at the beginning of the challenge...)
Apparently, you can lose weight, increase testosterone, improve sleep, fight depression, and strengthen your immune system all by taking cold showers! Who knew? And the best part? You don't have to limit yourself to just cold showers. You can actually take a hot shower and just have the last minute or so be cold, which is what I often do anyway. And after doing this challenge? This seems like a piece of cake.
But for now, I'm warm in my bed, dreaming of tomorrow's shower. I've gotta say... I'm really looking forward to it.
