November 2023 Cold Plunge Challenge
For this challenge, we will be exposing our bodies to cold water every day for an entire month. Please note that you do not have to have a cold plunge tub to take part in this challenge; cold showers work, too. As do natural bodies of water like a lake, creek, or ocean.
If you've never cold-plunged before, NO WORRIES! You are not alone, and I'll guide you through it gently. We start with :30 and move up from there.
Hate the cold? Oh man, I used to, too. I mean, I truly HATED. THE. COLD. But I have learned to love the effects of cold plunge: the instant dopamine blast, the decreased inflammation, better, deeper sleep, and the resilience that comes along with exposing oneself to the cold, repeatedly.
