The Living Force
I almost gave myself brain freeze the other day when I was rinsing my hair. So be mindful everyone not to keep your head under for too long if you are doing the full 10 degrees.Nienna said:I'm not doing the baths, but the showers, as lainey is. And, I, too am doing a bit of "dancing" until my body numbs up enough to not need to do it anymore, but lots of turning to make sure that all sides are included in the cold. Do my version of "singing", too. :D Cold adaption and exercise all in one!Alana said:I do cold baths, but I too found that singing helps. Often it is loud and, inevitably, with a tremololainey said:Yeah, I find pipe breathing makes things way easier. I don't have a bath so I tend to stand under the water and do a little dance and sing a little songMariama said:This may sound strange, but I puff a lot (some women do that when they are in labour) when I have a cold shower and it seems to help.
I'm now able to just "jump" into the cold showers without starting with warmer water. I still don't know what temperature it is (got a showerhead thermometer on the way), but I do turn read and it hurts my head when put my head under the flow so it should be cold enough.
The song I sing is called the "you did it yesterday so you can do it today" song. I know that's a bit dumb and those are the only words to the song except when I get out I do a wee victory dance and sing "you did it yesterday and you did it today!!!"
