A tepid shower

Why would you want to take a tepid shower?

  1. If the water is cool enough that it’s slightly uncomfortable, you will use less water – because you’ll want to end sooner!
  2. It’s refreshing, particularly on a hot summer day.
  3. Your pores won’t open up and soak in as many soap chemicals.
  4. Some even say it relieves depression.

And there are many┬ámore reasons – as well as an explanation on that last one in this article. Disclaimer – some of the benefits apply only to men.

Finally, a hat tip to my son Jay, who got me started in this practice. I don’t take it quite as far as he does – my “cold” showers are merely tepid.

p.s. Here’s another list of the benefits of cold showers: link.
