Ice Bath – level 1

24-03-2021 07:00

Wim Hof comes from the Netherlands. People call him the Iceman. Hof swims under ice. He climbs the highest mountain in Africa in shorts.

Wim Hof bathes in ice. He writes books about it. He creates the Wim Hof Method. This method is about breathing, ice bathing, and mental training.

Before you bathe in ice, you must breathe correctly. Then you stay in ice. You meditate during this time. When you meditate, you become calm and relaxed. You feel happier.

Ice bathing is very good for your body. You become healthier and stronger. You sleep better. You will feel and look younger.

Difficult words: shorts (short trousers or pants), method (how you do something), mental (connected to your mind and thinking).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
