A shiver shower a COLD shower, and for the last 5 seconds before you get out you make it FREEZING!
I try to take a shiver shower often. Sometimes my body craves it (it's much easier to do after a workout when your body temp is up!) . Other times, it takes discipline and will power to pull it off . Either way, your body will thank you afterward. You will feel extremely relieved, and also very awake, alert, and rejuvenated!
And here are some facts for you if I haven't persuaded you yet.
For one, a hot water shower majorly dries out your skin and your hair. Studies have shown that if you take a cold shower, you boost your immunity, and also jump start your metabolism! What happens is the low temp increases your metoblic rate, so your body's attempt to warm up will activate your immune system. Your body releases more white blood cells in response!
Furthermore, there is another more meaningful and deeper reason I encourage you to take a cold shower, but Mans Denton says it best in 7 Reasons to Take a Cold Shower and 1 That Really Matters.
