Part 1 - Cold showers



Water heaters or heating systems in the houses are considered to be part of the luxury that one will always look forward to, what I am trying to do here is to break some of your conventional thinking and tell you that, it’s time you say bye bye to your heaters. 

Recover muscles and prevents DOMS 

In the modern world we see athletes being immersed in ice for recovery. There are hundreds of findings out there that confirms when a person is immersed in ice (10 degrees to 12 degrees) for 18 to 25 minutes after heavy resistance or aerobic exercises has eased people from delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) significantly.
The interesting news is that hitting a quick cold shower right after your training session can get similar benefits.

Build strong will power 

I was never a fan of cold showers until recently. Doing something you are resistant to until it becomes a habit takes a lot of discipline and courage. It tests you mentally.
Getting up early in the morning and getting in to warm shower and being in the comfort zone might be the best feeling for you. Imagine yourself waking up to stand under the shower where your body will be tested until you build the courage and it becomes and automated habit of your life. 

Improves hair and skin health

If only I discovered this during the days I had hair!
Many of you maybe struggling with hair loss and rough skin. Hot water have a tendency to dry your skin and if you are looking to seal the pores in the skin and the scalp, cold water is the solution. When it comes to the hair experts believe that cold water can make your hair look shinier, healthier by flattening the hair follicles with increased grip on the scalp.

I know you all love your warm showers, I am not asking you to throw the water heaters away but yeah those water heaters are of no use in Maldives.
