Cold Showers May Give You the Jolt You Need

Here’s an interesting (*non-scientific) theory: Cold-water therapy may turn you into a positive person by default. It appears that a cold shower may get you to stop caring so much about what you want and what you don’t want – i.e., it may neutralize preferences so that you can think more clearly.

We’ll wait on more research to make definitive statements, but this may be something to try if you need to implement a mindfulness goal, like clearing your head. In the meantime, heed these words from Chinese Zen master Z, ‘‘Do not like; do not dislike; all will then be clear.’’

So: Cold or Hot for you?

Aha! I trapped you into a preference.

Enjoy the day!
