Motivational technique for a cold winter swim

Winter bath

The winter period is a good opportunity to harden the body. Cold water bathing or winter bathing is also a good exercise for the development of willpower, because without willpower, nothing happens in life. Willpower is similar to muscle - in order to become stronger, it must be trained regularly. Initially, 100 seconds on a cold bath a day will suffice. Cold thermogenesis (Thermogenesis regulates body temperature and promotes its production) is one of the best ways to harden.
