James Bond Shower

Chilling cold water. We find ourselves shivering with discomfort and anger when taking a cold shower by accident, but this may actually be advantageous to our health. Turning the temperature down to very cold, referred to as a “Scottish or James Bond Shower”, at the end can provide surprising benefits for your body and skin. Are you ready, Mr. Bowie?

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Cold Shower


Reasons why you should take cold showers. Unfortunately, my electric boiler broke down during the coldest part of the year, leaving me without hot water for two days. It is probably the last thing you want to do, jump into an ice-cold shower. They say a cold water shower is an anti-depressant, it improves blood circulation, it’s good for your skin and hair, it builds mental strength, and it can improve athletic performance. James Bond took cold showers. I personally think hot showers are one of the best things in the whole wide world, especially during the coldest part of the year. So sorry, James. Can you hand me a towel, Mr. Bowie, please?

As an aside, I haven’t seen ‘Birdman’ from Alejandro González Iñárritu and I admit it looks promising. But my favourite movie of the year ‘Boyhood’ from Richard Linklater, a potential front runner, left with just one award, for best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette? Come on guys…
