Ice Bath – level 2
A Dutchman, Wim Hof, created The Wim Hof Method which combines ice bathes, breathing, and mental exercises.
Wim Hof holds many world records related to cold water. He swam 67 meters under ice, and he climbed the highest mountain in Africa only in shorts.
If you want to practice ice bathing, the most important thing is the right breathing. Then you can get into cold water and practice mindfulness and meditation. Mindfulness is a state when you focus only on the present moment. Meditation helps you feel calm and relaxed.
The method has many good effects on your body. Your body becomes stronger, healthier, and you feel younger. You sleep better and your body will easily recover from an illness.
Difficult words: mental (related to your mind and thinking), focus (to think about or do only one thing and nothing else), recover (to become healthy or feel good again).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
