The cold plunge.
Its not a macho play. The cold plunge offers huge therapeutic value. After 10-15 minutes in the hot room, sweat therapy reaches a pinnacle moment with a mad dash into an ice cold lake.
Yea, it’s a shock to the body. Yea, if you have a heart condition you should think twice. However, after you get through the warning label on the bottle and make the leap into the lake, after you resurface, climb out from the rocks, stand outside and look around, then great things happen. Your heart races, blood flows, your body starts to equalize, and no way in hell can you wipe the big smile off your face.
“Wow, that feels fantastic.”
No rushing back into the sauna. Stand around for awhile. Listen to your core, not your skin. Endorphin rush to the max.
Your sauna not by a fresh cold lake? An outdoor shower can do the job.
People think we are crazy. But what is crazy? Crazy is just another word for “I don’t understand it, so it must be a dumb thing to do.” So, this is another of many reasons why authentic sauna is such a wonderful thing.
