I am intending to use this more and more. Not ice-baths per se as I do not have the vast freezers one has in the US. But bathing in cold water will have to do.

You could try cryotherapy if you have the money...  Seems to be the newest fad.

My tap water runs around 55 - 60 F, which I think is cold enough to have the desired effect of forcing your body to "respond" to the chill. I just let the shower run cold water only to give myself a good chill. That's what the cold-water pool at my Korean bath house uses, too - cold tap water.

For a while, I tried ice-cube water as a face immersion, but I got tired of using all those ice cubes every day. In the meantime, I'll keep looking for those vast freezers that we have in the US. LOL

As regards ice, I agree I will likely give up on using it all the time.

Oy, Geoff! Too gullible!

There are Americans who buy those vast freezers to put in their vast kitchens in their vast houses,  but that does not mean that "we" have vast freezers in the US.

BTW, is it true that everybody in Europe lives in a castle?

I have been currently doing  cold baths for the last  week or so. Amazing in effect and makes me more "palaeo", I guess.  In Vienna, apparently, the water from the tap  comes out at a temperature of  8-10 degrees Celsius as it comes straight from the mountains without being warmed by the sun. So, I won't need to add any ice-packs to my baths. I spend the time reading as the idea is to be in the cold bath for at least an hour a day, overall.
