Cold prompts our adrenals to release norepinephrine, activating the brainโ€™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. ๐Ÿ˜ด
