I get up at 4 am everyday. I do my usual meditation and excercises. The i indulge in my morning work. At 6 i take bath in cold water. No matter what the atmospheric temperature i prefer to take bath in cold water. This i have found by experience as a good rejuvenator for the body. You are more cheerful and active. I have also found that people who take bath in hot water are dull and dry by nature.They lack enthusiasm. Is it true?

Hi, preethaanju. I could never take a bath in cold water even if it is hot or cold outside. I would feel all numb and shaky. I have to use warm water. It has to be almost hot, but not scalding hot.

neither do i take a bath in cold or hot water. i take a bath in the temperature that tap water is. when weather is cold, it would be colder to take a bath because of the weather. i don't prepare hot water to mix into my tap water. generally, it is the normal tap water that we use to bathe ourselves.

It feels so good to put your face under hot water on the shower head. Just stand there, close your eyes, and allow the water to hit your face and head. Enjoy, relax, and just feel the slight water massage. It truly is remarkable. And thats a myth with hot water... I have lots of enthusiasm!

Cold or hot water I take depends on the weather.In my opinion ,cold water contributes to health campaign.But I prefer to take bath in hot water.It's more comfortable for me to stay in steam. Steam can contribute to blood flowing and sweating,which can take pollution from ours.

I think you must live in a warm country, no way you would be taking cold baths if you lived in the UK! I like mine like a sauna - as hot as I can bear with lots of bubbles and sometimes candles around the bath. Personally i don't consider myself dull and dry - hot baths are just relaxing.

WOW...I don't know how you get up so early everyday I have a hard time getting up at 6:30 but thats because I'm a night person... i have always been one. I usually perfer to take a hot one but thats because I like to take them before bed and it helps me feel more sleepy that way. i definitly don't think that i lack enthusiasm but I might be a special person who takes hot baths lol, but btw interesting and random question. :)

I'll take both. I don't prefer. I am flexible person, whats it on, I'll take it and improve. On my condition, there is only on option: still water, its not hot or cold just still. So, I'm enjoying it. But on 5 o' clock in the morning everything gets too cold. But, after 5 minutes struggle with the cold water I feel fresh so I don't mind. If there is hot tools makes it hot, I use that too :)

I like to bathe with really hot water, and then use a cooler rinse off. This way my pores open and release everything, and I can get really clean. Then I use the cool rinse to "shock" my body a little bit and wake up from the calmness and relaxation of the hot water. If I'm about to go to bed I skip the cool rinse, otherwise I have a hard time falling asleep.

LOL. I have never really noticed that, maybe because I don't really know whether people shower with hot or cold water. lol. Anyway, I also like taking cold showers and bath, I mean it doesn't feel like I'm clean enough when I use hot water. hahaha. Plus, cold water would really wake you up, so in the morning, after my bath, I would feel energized and not sleepy and tired.

It depends on the climate. If its hot, then i bath with cold water, and if its cold i bath with hot(actually i would say warm) water. In general the climate is hot in here so, mostly i bath on cold water. It also depends on the hour, mornings are somewhat cold so i bath with warm water.
