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!
