This 90-second trick will energize you for your whole day
Nothing beats a nice hot shower in the morning to get you awake and ready to take on the day, right?
Wrong! According to an article from Entrepeneur, a standard hot shower is exactly what you want … if you plan on going back to sleep.
Instead, says contributor Phil Dumontet, there’s an easy way to get clean and send yourself out the door ready to tackle the morning — and it only takes 90 seconds.
In the article he says you should:
- Go through your regular cleaning routine in the shower.
- Crank the cold all the way up and stand under the water for 30 seconds. “Scream if it helps,” he says.
- Crank the hot up as far as you can stand it for another 30 seconds.
- Go back to cold for a final 30 seconds.
Notes Dumontet, the cycles are what matter. “Hot and cold hydrotherapy has been used for thousands of years,” particularly by the Finns. He adds, “it provides a full-body tuneup” that has benefits of reducing stress, a stronger immune system, improved blood circulation, a greater ability to burn fat and helps some people battle depression.
