      I’m a fan of Wim Hoff, the iceman, so inspirational! I do the cold shower exposure since it’s easy and consistent. I found the same is true for the heat. When I was taking hot yoga for several years, my tolerance for the summer really increased. The body is truly amazing.

      Good stuff! I have experienced a very cold living situation this winter. Hopefully my bod is developing strength with endurance. I have incorporated the shower suggestion and am going to work on incrementally increasing the time.

      As our seasonal shift is nearing another turn towards warmth; what better way to celebrate than embracing the cold throughout the rest of the year. (;

      Cold acclimation has been observed to hold the potential of yielding many amazing benefits. Hope y'all are staying warm and keeping spirits high.
