    Here i'm reporting on my progress in that particular practice i adapted,
    used to do it every month - but now plan on doing it once a week to strengthen
    my practice in that aspect.


    @TangoTao
    Completed IceBath Challenge (29th Nov)
    NEXT: IceBath Challenge <By: 6th Dec 6am GMT+1>

    [​IMG]as long as i succeed at it each week i get to keep that icon

    that means - to put ice cubes into bathtub, let it cool, and submerge myself completely in it. My personal journal on this icy path.

    IceBath had been completed yesterday- a bit longer one then the last time - i'm getting back into that practice

    Completed IceBath Challenge <4th Dec 2019>

    [​IMG]so i get to keep that icon for another week,
    but just for a week - you want it again - work for it i say it to myself,
    this time it was a bit more doable, though its still tough and some hesitation is still needed to be overcome.

    Dude, I'd like to have a ice bath, can't afford it lol. Don't have bath, just shower. Cold shower rocks, but I already feel how awesome bath would be. Anyways, a legend you are.

    Not bothering with details probably won't get you as far as bothering with details. For others who are not as young and have health problems it is also unsafe.

    That said I do support this IF people don't screw themselves over by not using a CONTROLLED method as mentioned on this page of the Ice Man himself. Why not go with people who have already figured it out and have a system?

    @Awedouble sure man - i'm not guru here - just jurnalling my own stuff - anyone does it ont htheir own if they wish - perhsps i'll make some disclaimer so ppl dont do smth stupid, i did it very gradually over couple of years now - and that's my take on it - i don't teach here - but if anything its just to share experiences.

    usually around 8pm i just stop everything and then - i give myself all the mental space to just do that ONE thing for the evening,
    - that is the cold shower - it might get me a week or two to get back to the icebaths - due to all the commotion in xmass time,
    but i keep it in sight - for the moment i just keep on with consistancy in cold showers as having value on its own.

    had been struggling to get back into the cold showers on the cold-turkey basis, so adapted a new approach,
    'cold bucket', so i just wash myself with a sponge - i want to keep at it DAILY for the next two weeks
    Day 1/14 - today had the first one, one has to restart somewhere.

    afterall in all our practices - all we need to do is to START AND TO CONTINUE!!!
