Moving towards a new thing
Since I remember, I love learning. It could be a hobby, a new language, living in a new place, or acquiring a new career.
To me, new habits spice up life.
Recently, without a special intention, I started to practice ice bath exposures. It all began about a month ago during our mutual workshop with Ghenia in Israel and slowly it became a thing I am giving it a try and I admit, I kind of love it, especially the post effect (:
I am now in a stage where I think I am ready to do it on my own, in the privacy of my bath tab. There is something very powerful & exhilarating post-cold water exposure and there are obviously many benefits you can enjoy from like:
Improves blood circulation
Leads to weight loss
Lessens muscle aches
Boosts the immune system
Prevents (and improves) mental health conditions such as depression
Nourishes skin and hair
One of the best benefits of cold water therapy: Improves lymphatic movement
Cold exposure helps to improve sleep
Cold immersion improves the psyche
And the list goes on…

This is a video from my yesterday’s third ice bath attempt (the first minute is the hardest, then it becomes more tolerant to the nervous system)
Remind your younger self today: ''You are safe, you are loved, you are enough"
I call it, moving towards something you wish for yourself. It could be an exercise, learning to play a musical instrument, moving in together with someone, or starting small habits in your daily routine.
The main thing to remember is that you are moving towards it, step by step, day by day. No judgments, no slogans like ‘’no pain, no gain’’, just small victories like stepping on your yoga mat every day for 20 min or drinking less coffee (:
Whatever it is, make it your silent change for the new year.
