How cold is *cold* for showering?

    Simple question: how cold are your cold showers?

    I've been measuring the temperature of mine, and when I have 100% cold, it's still about 18°C. If we're going off deep below ground temperature it should arrive at about 7° , so I guess I have quite a shallow water main (and I'd expect it to be a lot colder in the winter)

    What do you guys do, 100% cold or a bit warmer. What sorts of temperatures do you get?

    Start from middle, to colder and than as cold as you can. It's enough. As long it's not warm its good. I suggest you to try ice bath 2-3 times a week if you want to feel the real cold :) but don't worry youre getting benefits anyway! Keep it up!

    The temperature of water here in Germany actually is about 18 degrees C. In winter- time it goes down to 10 degrees. 13-18 degrees is comfortable - for 2-3 minutes showering.

    Don't know the temps exactly sadly, probably not much considering it's summer time in south california, but I do max cold I can, same in winter, I just endure it, if I'm shivering I know it's working and I meditate it out.

    The exact temperature doesn't matter, it's actually the decision to make every day.

    not much of a decision - I really like it! Though I may change my mind in November...

    That's when it gets tough and you have to think is it worth not gaining all that mental strength, health benefits, and losing the streak you're currently on? It's like when you see the hottest girl ever during a big nofap streak, is it really worth that 1 day? ;) Good luck brother! I know I'm not gonna like it in december-february but just gotta stay strong :D

    At winter just open your window in the toilet, let the cold get in. Then take your clothes off and breathe deep for about 2mins. Then close your window and jump in. Start from middle (your bodytemperature) to colder and max cold. Mental strength is on the way :)

    I do full cold year round. In the winter I think the water is mid 50s. Right now it is in the 70s, which is hardly a cold shower. I found I almost never like at any time of year the cold water on my back. But once I let my back get wet I don’t mind it whatever the temperature is.

    :) for anyone not in USA, 50f is about 10c and 70f is about 21c.

    Totally agree with the cold water on the back thing though. :):)
