Preparing Yourself to Take a Cold Shower

One of the many reasons why some people don’t want to head to the shower room in the morning is because the water is too cold. Unfortunately, not all showers have a temperature control you can adjust. You have no choice but to bathe using the water that comes out regardless of the temperature.

If you are heading to a shower room with cold water, these are the tips to help you face the challenge.

Prepare yourself mentally

You already know what to expect when your shower has no temperature control. You need to condition yourself because your body will be shocked by the cold water. It could still shock you, but it won’t hurt as much.

Rinse your hair first

The head is the least sensitive to cold showers. You can bend over to allow water only to hit your hair. Rinse it thoroughly and slowly let the water drip onto your body. Then, you will start to get used to the low temperature.

Shampoo your hair

After bending over to rinse your hair and you are still not ready to have cold water on your body, the next thing to do is shampoo your hair. Take your time while doing it. You can even make silly shapes with your hair up until you are ready for the challenge of having cold water on your body.

Use a loofa

If you want to avoid volumes of cold water on your body, use a loofa. You can scrub your body with the loofa and a shower gel. You won’t feel too cold because you only have a small amount of water on your body. Once it is time to rinse off, you will have adjusted to the temperature.

Hurry up

You only need to have cold water on your body when it is time to rinse your hair and remove the soap. You can hurry things up, so you don’t need to feel the low temperature for a long time. You can also gradually rinse your hair without touching your body so that you can speed things up.

Install a hot shower

Although it is possible to survive a cold shower, you don’t need to suffer. You can buy a steam shower if you want to adjust the temperature based on how hot you want it to be. Some people have a high tolerance to heat while others are tolerant to low temperatures. It is okay either way because you can adjust the temperature of a steam shower. When you don’t have one, you have no choice but to use the water regardless of its temperature.

Steam showers are not too expensive. You can also buy a shower cabin if you want more privacy when you bathe. With the steam shower plus the cabin, you will feel excited about bathing, regardless of the time of the day. You won’t need to stress about the low temperature anymore. You will even receive the benefits of showering at high temperature.
