“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
- Started his own business
- Get in the best shape of his life
