Wellness Challenge #5- Cold Therapy
BENEFITS OF COLD THERAPY
Frequent exposure to cold is linked to a number of different health benefits. Initially, the main challenge is primarily mental. This will take you outside your comfort level. Work on your deep breathing patterns you’ve been rehearsing since Wellness Challenge # 2. Breathing will help you stay calm and you only start with 15 seconds for the first week so it’s doable.
