Cold prompts our adrenals to release norepinephrine, activating the brain’s energizing dopamine system. One study found a 530% increase in norepinephrine and a 250% increase in dopamine in subjects who got into 58-degree water up to their necks for just a few minutes.
Cold showers and ice baths are often used by athletes because not only do they ease sore muscles, but they decrease inflammation and can help you sleep better. 😴
