COLD IMMERSION 101
Approaching The Cold
Step next to the tub ready to go in. Notice where your mind may go and how your body may start to react even before getting in the water. Take a deep breath. Literally. Your breath will take you through this. The quality, depth, and focus of your breath will set the tone for the ease of your immersion. Use a few long, deep breaths to relax your body and get to a point of acceptance rather than fight. Embrace the suck that’s about to happen, and remember why you are doing this.
