I really enjoyed reading Margot’s story. I agree that it is so important to “wash the day” off you when you get home. I have read some studies that discuss the benefits of COLD showers as a way of engaging your body’s own relaxation mechanisms. I try to have 30 seconds under a cold shower 3 times a week. I am trying to extend that time, but I hate the cold so it is proving to be a challenge. The good thing is that I am starting to notice a difference in my energy levels and my moods.
