This life hack won’t cost you anything and will make you feel refreshed and well.
Next time you shower, after you are wet – step away from the stream and put it to cold – ice cold (not lukewarm) – go back inside and stay for 30 seconds! Turn around – let it get on your whole body! Don’t forget your head. When you’ve had enough, step away and turn it back to warm.
If you are really hardcore do this 2 or 3 times. It will open up your sinuses and is good for health.
Cold showers can aid weight loss in an unexpected way. The human body contains two types of fat tissue, white fat and brown fat. White fat is accumulated when we consume more calories than our body needs to function, and we don’t burn these calories for energy. This body fat piles up at our waist, lower back, neck, and thighs, and is the one we all struggle to eliminate. Brown fat is the good fat, which generates heat to keep our bodies warm, and is activated when exposed to extreme cold, according to the Joslin Diabetes Center, a Harvard Medical School affiliate. Thus, cold showers can promote brown fat activity.
