MOTM #440: Shivering Ain’t the Way: The Neuroscience Behind Cold Showers

Thursday, January 12th, 2023

What’s with all these people taking cold showers all of a sudden, and do you need to do it, too? Hey if you’re a cold-shower-taker, more power to you! But for those who are simply cold-shower-curious, I gotcha. Luckily for all of you, I did some learning about this in 2016-2017 and there are some benefits you might be interested in, especially if you’re prone to anxiety. 

Let’s chat.

Welcome to Maestro on the Mic, a podcast that helps online business owners find their passion, generate more profit, and build a life that they love. I'm your host, Dr. Shanté Cofield, aka The Movement Maestro, and I’m stoked to have you here. I hope this podcast inspires you to make moves and do the thing. Action is the answer.

In This Episode You'll Hear:

  • Is the goal your own?
  • All cold is not created equal
  • The sympathetic nervous system response
  • Regulating your breath (through the nose)
  • It’s not the stimulus, it’s the response
  • Ease in!
