This also applies to our environment. We like to live in a comfortable temperature. Our homes, our offices, and our cars all have systems that fight against the outside temperature to keep us cozy. When it’s too hot outside we can make our personal environment colder, when it’s too cold outside we can make it warmer.
Regular exposure to extreme temperatures has amazing benefits.
Our ancestors were regularly exposed to excessive heat and blinding cold. It helped transform their bodies into resilient machines capable of excelling and functioning at the highest level. Our biology is remarkably similar to our early ancestors. We can still use their strategies to build stronger bodies.
We can easily tap back into this genetic potential by taking daily cold showers and using a sauna 2 or 3 times a week. Heat and cold can help optimize our hormones, speed recovery time and help our minds think and process at a faster rate.
