5 Things That Can Happen to Your Body If You Start Taking Cold Showers

4. They reduce stress and improve your mental health.

The way cold showers work is by inflicting great shock and stress on your body. So if you take them regularly, you start a process that is called hardening. During that time, your nervous system gets used to being “hit” with small amounts of physical stress and prepares you for when really stressful moments arrive. As a result, your body and mind are ready to face any hard situation whenever it appears.

Also, cold water releases endorphins into our bloodstream and, as a result, makes us more alert, energized, and happy. In a clinical trial, it was shown that people suffering from depression were relieved of their symptoms after taking up to 5-minute cold showers 2-3 times per week.
