Looking for a bit of change, try contrast therapy

Contrast therapy combines the health benefits of exposing yourself to hot and cold water one after the other.

Other effects that are caused by doing contrast therapy include reduced stress, a stronger immune system, improvements to your cardio fitness, improved focus and last but not least, it’ll lift your mood.
