Wim says this deep breathing helps to alkaline the body, increasing its resilience when responding to environmental stressors. It reduces the acid in our blood and balances our PH levels.
The Wim Hof app is free to download and has a step-by-step guide on the 20-day cold shower challenge. https://www.wimhofmethod.com/wim-hof-method-mobile-app
Once you have downloaded your app, choose your level, and aim to start in the first few days of November. You can mark your progress each day in the app and you only need to complete 5 out of 7 days each week, or push yourself and try it every day!
Wim Hof featured on The Goop Lab series on Netflix which is worth watching if you haven’t seen it already. It is the second episode called “cold comfort”. He has trained thousands of people around the world to overcome their fears, improve their mental health, and cure their bodies of disease.
I particularly admire his story about how he has evolved into who he is today. Albeit tragic circumstances in the beginning, he has defied all odds and has proven mind over matter, with sheer determination.
For my lovely friends joining me in this challenge, I look forward to sharing this with you and can’t wait to see how we all feel on the other side 🤍 For anyone who would like to join in, it’s not too late, feel free to get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org or simply take part and let me know how you find it.
