Ice face

Yesterday I put my face in a bowl of ice water and held it there for twenty seconds. That's about as long as I could go before it got too painful. Doing this is supposed to tone the vagus nerve (which has benefits for reasons), so I thought I would give it a try. Aparently with time I will be able to hold my face in the ice water for longer and longer and maybe in a month be able to hold it there for 5 minutes or so. I'm going to try to work up to that.

I did some meditation last night as well, which felt good and made me wonder why I ever stopped. I'm not one of those people who has the will power to wake up at the ass-crack of dawn to meditate and exercise, so there's a greater likelyhood that such things get lost in the shuffle of everyday living. I'm going to try to make more of an effort.
