What better way to start off the year than jumping into freezing cold water! It does help by boosting the immune system, creates a natural high, improves circulation, burns calories (from all that shivering), reduces stress, and you might just make a new friend or two while doing it (maybe not friends you’d want to keep but still friends). It also makes your butt smaller as you tend to freeze your a** off! Oh, and it is recommended that you wear shoes… Lord knows why!
How to celebrate – Take a Polar Bear Plunge. Turn on your shower to cold to get a general idea of what it will feel like. Chicken out at the last moment and lose all those friends you thought you’d made.
