Why cold plunge?

The last few days I have been cold plunging in Himalayan cold water. The stream that I go for a dip is just a few minutes of walk from where I live. Some may think this is a little brutal especially since this is winter and the weather is cold already especially in the mountains. But there are incredible benefits in cold water therapy. It improves blood circulation, immunity, digestion and metabolism. Personally my digestive system has been doing extremely well for the past few days.


I incorporate dipping with Wim Hoff breathing. When the initial shock of dipping oneself in the cold water is over the body starts to acclimatize. When we equalise with the unpleasant sensation, the body and the mind starts to calm down releasing any anxiety and stress from our system. It feels amazing.


For any of those star souls out there who find it difficult to ground themselves in the physical body, I would really recommend this. I usually bring my attention into the base chakra and breathe into it to bring consciousness down into the body.


I usually do it in the afternoon when the sun is fully shining and my favorite part where I sunbathe afterwards on the nearest rock.

Of course if you want to experience this, you don't need himalayan stream near you. Just bathing in cold showers in the morning is enough or if you have a jacuzzi you can fill it with ice water and experience the benefits..
