* Ways to Enhance your Detox
Although this may sound like a torture rather than a pleasure, cold showers have many beneficial rewards. If you have ever plunged into a cold pool or inadvertedly stepped into a cold shower, you will know that it is an extremely invigorating experience. Also, it leaves you considerably warmer than a normal hot shower would.
Cold showers have the effect of:
* increasing your circulation
* toning your muscles & skin
* giving the lymph a jump-start.
If having a cold shower every morning sounds too torturous, then try this. When showering every morning, simply turn the shower to cold just before you are ready to finish. Let the cold water run over your entire body for just ONE minute.
Alternatively, when you have finished your bath, you can turn on the cold tap as the water is draining away,!then cup your hands under the water and splash the cold water all over your body.
You should take a cold shower every morning!
