According to Entrepreneur, the benefits of this trick are almost endless. The change in temperature while you shower immediately increases blood flow, opens up the capillaries and energises both your mind and your body. Over time however, it improves your resilience to stress and the body’s ability to burn fat, as well as increasing your levels of white blood cells.

Apparently it’s something Victoria Beckham does every day and, when you consider how successful she is, it clearly works wonders.

This is definitely one we’re going to try out to get us through the working week.
