The Magic Powers of YIN-YANG Water


In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describe how opposite forces may actually be complementary and how they may give rise to each other. According to Chinese Medicine, it’s healthy to maintain balance between Yang and Yin. This can be achieved by balanced lifestyle, proper nutrition, exercise and meditation. [1]

Cold shower – best creativity and energy booster ever!

Cold shower is the fastest energy booster you can get in the morning.

– radically improves physical and mental wellness [1]
– practiced daily boosts your immune, lymphatic, circulatory and digestive systems
– burns fat / increase weight-loss by boosting your metabolism
– immediately makes you feel happy and proud of yourself
– boosts your creativity, willpower and productivity

– there is only ONE – the initial fear of stepping into a cold shower
But no worries! Just jump in and breath slowly. After 10-20 seconds, you’re fine.

“If you can’t do something uncomfortable and difficult in the shower, how the hell are you going to do something uncomfortable or difficult in real life?

People can survive hypothermia [3] for thirty to sixty minutes. Your shower is not as cold as a frozen lake and you won’t even get close to hypothermia. If you must, have a space heater waiting for you when you get out.

I’ve never met anyone who’s tried it and regretted doing it. Literally no one.” [2]

So who’s in with me, guys? 🙂
