Embrace the Cold

Today I am starting a new “Adventure Calls You Challenge,” inspired from an article I read from my January/February issue of Men’s Journal.  The article, “The Cold Cure,” extols the benefits of being cold.  I’ve already experimented with taking cold showers, and now I am taking it a step further by purposely being cold at certain times during the day.

Our region has experienced a cold snap over the last week, with temperatures hovering around freezing.  So today I took my first step into embracing the cold, but walking outside in my short-sleeve shirt to and from my students’ work experience.  I was cold, but not as cold as I thought I would be.  Two things helped me:  1) the mindset that this ‘cold’ was only temporary and 2) walking straight and upright to take the cold head on.

So for the next few weeks I will continue to embrace the cold, with my goal that this will be a regular thing that I will just adopt as part of my lifestyle.  To help me get through this, I will follow the guidelines as provided by the suggestions of the article.  Read on and join me!
