Let’s lean into the discomfort by plunging into cold water or sweating through a hot sauna with metabolic scientist and author of Winter Swimming, Susanna Søberg.
We have been jumping into the sea for the last 8 years, we knew it was good for us, simply by how it made us feel: Elevated, alive, new, refreshed, giddy, more connected to those around us and overall a feeling of happiness. Now after so much research we are aware of how truly beneficial cold water and heat exposure is for us, from the serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin hits, to the longevity benefits and the effect it has on our metabolism. We discuss it all with Susanna and even take things a step further into the community benefits.
Susanna Søberg, PhD., earned her doctorate researching metabolism and has worked for many years designing and conducting clinical studies. Her most recent research and the background for this book have been on fat reduction through winter swimming at the Tryg Foundation’s Center for Physical Activity, Denmark. Winter Swimming, now published in thirteen languages, is her first book.
Founder and CEO of www.soeberginstitute.com . Susanna has also created a course, The Thermalist Cure, all about how and why to get started with cold, heat, and breathwork for better health. The course launches on 24th January and she has kindly offered our listeners a 10% discount with the code THEHAPPYPEAR
A brilliant episode that is on a topic close to our hearts.
Lots of Love,
