The Power of the Cold Shower

Head shower while running water

“I hate this.”

I got up at 5AM yesterday. I stumbled into my bathroom and stared at my shower.

“This is going to be terrible.” I turned the handle…. all the way to the blue “C”. I touched the water….ice cold.

“At least I don’t have to wait for the water to heat up.”

A few minutes later I stepped out, shivering from the cold water. Within a couple minutes, I was fine.

This cold shower routine helped me get a 710 on my first try (with two months of studying). As I start studying again (in hopes of getting a 760), I will start this crazy routine of waking up early and taking a cold shower.

Check out this great TED talk, and how taking cold showers for 30 days allowed the speaker to

  1. Started his own business
  2. Get in the best shape of his life
  3. Ran an ultramarathon

    This morning’s shower was so cold! But oddly refreshing – thanks for passing it along.

      Hi Jonthan, Thank you for sharing your story, what a success. I have a question please, what is the healthiest period of time of taking a test trial between each ? and what is the total period of time’s preparation to the real test day should I take?
      Many thanks to you
