take the plunge

i found a wonderful spa situation recently and a new, rather exhilarating, experience: the cold plunge.

the idea is to warm up as much as possible in the hot tub and sauna, then submerge (fully if possible) yourself instantly into 50 degrees.

not only is this a bonding experience among strangers, but has several health benefits including reduction of inflammation, increased immune function, and optimized circulation.

i will say it also makes one tingle for quite a while, even after warming up in the salt soaking pool but is followed (at least it was for me) by physical/mental acuity and a great night's sleep.

other cultures have practiced this for centuries. have you taken the plunge?
