What I found interesting:
Ritual baths in the morning with cold water were usually done by Japanese samurai warriors in the past. This ritual is commonly called misogi in Japanese. The habit is intended to cleanse the soul so that the mind becomes more calm and get through their days with excitement.
However, apart from the usual ritual of the Japanese, it is logical that a cold water bath can alter our mood. Just imagine if we’re getting tense or down for some reason. After we shower, the body will feel more refreshed, the mind becomes calmer, clearer, and more relaxed.
