Did you watch ‘Freeze the Fear’ on BBC1 back in 2022? If so, you’ll know all about the coolest man around, Wim Hof. And the spike in interest that the show caused, seeing many invest in an ice bath for their garden. And now, just for you, the Student Life team are giving you the chance to get involved.
Not heard of it before? The ‘Wim Hof method’ can be life changing. It can help you to overcome physical and mental barriers, unlocking a multitude of benefits. This may include faster recovery, better sleep and expanded horizons.
As part of Feel Good February, you are invited to discover a new level of resilience. Tap into the power of breath and cold exposure to boost your immune system. Increase your energy. Reduce stress. And feel invigorated.
What are some of the benefits of breathwork and cold exposure?
Breathwork and cold exposure can be effective tools to proactively support wellbeing. They can reduce stress and anxiety as well as support mental and physical wellbeing and resilience.
Studies have suggested that cold exposure also has a huge range of health benefits. From improved circulation, reduced inflammation, increased mental resilience and enhancing the body’s ability to adapt to stress.
When breathwork workshops and cold exposure from ice baths are combined they can provide even more significant improvements in mental and physical performance.
These sessions will provide the opportunity for you to learn new skills, relax and support you with a valuable toolkit to manage your wellbeing. Both now and in the future.
