Why do we name this separately? Because this is really reserved for the people who want to get that tjakka feeling. Again, it is about overcoming uncertainty and not about overcoming fear. Fear is always a result of uncertainty. For the Cold water exposure, we’d better talk to Jeannette herself. She has been doing this 3 times a week for years. Just at home in her pool, which is sometimes covered with ice in the winter. Sometimes she warms herself up in her jacuzzi afterwards. You don’t always have to go for the max.
Jeannette recently invited people to her home to go through this experience together. Young and old and they are guided in a good motivating way. Overcoming uncertainty is the starting point of all sessions. By being more sure of yourself, you succeed and the fear disappears. Also the realization, by the way, that that fear of cold never goes away, but in the moment can only be overcome by being more sure of yourself. Sure, because you know you’ve done it before.
I am immediately invited to participate on Saturday, along with 18 others. In groups of 6 you go into the cold water. Then let your own body warm itself up first. Finally, and as a reward, warm up afterwards in the jacuzzi. To be continued.
