I began taking daily cold showers in January of 2018. Yes, you read that right, January. And I live in Canada.

Older family members and acquaintances thought I was nutty. All their lives, they had been taught that the cold was their enemy. People my age were either surprised, didn’t care or thought it was a cool thing to try (pun intended).
