Do You Take Cold Showers?
I’ve been only taking ice-cold showers for the last 6 years. Why? Here are just a few advantages of cold showers.
  • Cold showers increase norepinephrine - the hormone that counterbalances the stress hormone cortisol - by 300% (!!). There’s nothing else that can lower our stress levels like that.
  • Cold exposure increases our alertness.
  • Cold showers before sleep dramatically improve sleep quality
  • Also, studies show that people who expose themselves regularly to the cold get 42% fewer respiratory infections.
Are cold showers worth it for you? The only way to know is to try cold showers for yourself – here’s everything you need to know to get started.
Signs of Stupidity or Signs of Intelligence?
I love this Twitter thread where people answer the question: “What is a sign of intelligence that most confuse with a sign of stupidity?”
My favorite answers are: “Changing your mind when presented with new information” and “Saying I don’t understand”.

Fear
The body is communicating through its universal language: pain. Your psyche is communicating through its universal language: fear. Self-consciousness, jealousy, insecurity, anxiety—they are all fear. The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer
Learn more about subjects that intimidate you. We fear what we don’t understand. Understand what you’re anxious about, find out what you’re jealous of. The more you understand yourself the more confident and fearless you can go through life.
Have a great day fearless all

PS: I just came back from vacation in Lavagna in Italy. What a beautiful place. I especially loved the colors of Cinque Terre.
