MAR­VEL­LOUS MEDICINE

Mens Health (Australia) - - State Of Mind -

To sum­mon the fo­cus to take on Wolver­ine, Hugh Jack­man be­gins each day with an icy shower. And who are we to ar­gue? A Fin­nish study found cold-wa­ter ex­po­sure re­lieves ten­sion. We’re not say­ing jump in a lake, but a cold blast first thing should do the job.

1/ DON’T DE­LAY

A cold shower isn’t the warm­est wel­come, but the longer you think about it the more re­sis­tance you’ll come up against.

2/ START SLOW

Maybe a few min­utes of tepid wa­ter, then dial down to bal­lach­ingly cold.

3/ HOLD IT FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN

Three min­utes is a good start. Get out and feel the fo­cus wash over you. The day is yours!
