Willpower Workout

Cold Shower.

Yes, it’s good for your health:

  • Increases alertness
  • Refines hair and skin
  • Improves immunity and circulation
  • (and more)

More importantly though: It’s a Willpower Workout.

“It’s going to be uncomfortable right now, but it’s good for me in the long run.”

The moment just before you switch the “hot” to “cold” and expose your body to the freezing sensation. I’ll be honest: After years of doing this, I still hesitate. I try to postpone (or procrastinate?) the switch to cold, staying under the pleasant hot water a little longer. But when I finally manage – it’s my little morning victory.

“It’s going to be uncomfortable right now, but it’s good for me in the long run.”

Exercising, starting the work on an intimidating task or having an uncomfortable conversation: All these require your willpower.

The perfect willpower workout is right there in your bathroom.
