This Trick Reduce Stress, Anxiety and Depression | Wim Hof

  • čas přidán 4. 12. 2019
  • The adventurer, @wimhof1 ”Iceman” creates a totally unique episode of Framgångspodden! He is famous for being able of withstanding extreme cold, he has climbed Mount Everest wearing shorts, he holds the World Record for icebaths and he is the man behind the global ’cold-shower’-trend. I went down to visit him in the Netherlands where he told me about his breathing techniques that makes it possible for him to withstand the cold and how these techniques can make us more healthy.
    Wim shares his techniques he use to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. And it can be implemented today!
    If you want to learn more about Wim Hof go visit his website: www.wimhofmethod.com/
    Wim also have his own amazing CHclip channel with a guided breathing technique video: chclip.net/video/nzCaZQqAs9I/video.html
    Thank you Wim(@iceman_hof) for letting us visit you at your home and to help share the message.

      @Ag21 lol becouse we all know Jesus peace be upon him can not be God but prophet, becouse God allmighty created Jesus in Marry like he created Adam and Ewa without Parents and becouse Jesus ate food and drinking and was tired and was weak so he can not be God like God in heaven Father of all creation. So you are in wrong page bro, and your contradicted corupted copy to copy bible from unknow writers need to spread in religion Chanels not by Wim Hoff page..Maybe its beter to spread your corupted verses by unknow writers in Religion Chanel bro.. Take care have nice days...

    Been doing the breathing and showers for two weeks and I am addicted. At first, the breathing didn't make much of a difference but yesterday for the first time I felt elated after the breathing and then the cold shower just elevated it. Now I am delving deeper into meditation techniques and trying to find out more about the Tummo meditation which I believe Wim's technique is somewhat based on. It has helped me with anxiety and melancholy. It feels like you are whole again and can challenge the day more energized and focused, not to mention happier. Sometimes I just put Wim's videos in the background as hearing him is just so positive and reassuring in this very combative confusing world.

      @Tiemen de beer I am sorry but so glad to see that it’s helping. I would suggest some cold showers too, start with a few seconds at the end and build up to 2 minutes. Then you can try your breathing after that. It’s an amazing system he uses that has helped me immensely and been doing it for 18 months. A day without a cold shower is not great for me now. Just a suggestion but look into it

    The fact that the scientists said “but you are the iceman you are special” and the iceman himself says “anybody can do it” and goes ahead and proves it, makes me realize how i can’t believe anything being told to me by a doctor just because he is a doctor, there is always a deeper layer to everything

      Dear Alisha, I also recommend that you consider fasting if you are not already doing this. For reference read the book "the longevity diet" by prof. Valter Longo from USC. Also its worth googling "Jenni Russell of the times of london". After meetng Prof Longo she cured her autoimmune disease by fasting. Good luck..

      @unknown - dizzy is not good. Sit down if you are dizzy, otherwise you can fall and kill yourself. Breathe! Don't hold your breath. You start gradually, going colder and colder each time and work your way to colder. Your tolerance level will go up quickly and the cold shower will warm you up when you get out.

    Cold showers daily for six years now, plus snow bath/sauna, river swimming in winter, ice dunk tank/sauna.
    I used to dread the harsh winters and had aches, depression etc. Stumbled on Wim two years after I'd discovered it naturally, on my own : ) like he did. It feels so, so good!
    I would also add, as a man, don't expose yourself after a cold shower, ba ha haaaaa!!! Couldn't help it : )
    Enjoy new people and long timers!! I will never go back.

    I live near an Alpine Mountain river system and it is well known that "jumping in" really makes you feel great afterwards for quite a while. I just discovered Wim Hoff and the way he explains the physical science behind a cold shower makes a ton of sense.
    Also the breathing will help you get out of a panic attack if you feel it coming. Tried it for the first time and was shocked. Can't wait to be 30 days in. He's a super nice guy.

      Honestly, not just this, but all medical science should be taught in schools. Every high schooler should take first year med school curricula. This way, ALL people have basic training in medical science, nutrition. There’s been so much emphasis on other subjects, but what could be more important than maintaining good health? This including emotional health- emotions aren’t a luxury and with how much emotional well being stems into health, emotional first aid also should be taught.

    How wonderful. Thank you for this beautiful session. I found your knowledge and explanations so sensitive and soft and warm. When there is a willingness to connect with others, anxiety can be explored, with awareness in order to reduce it's impact. Patience, showing up and being kind to ourselves when we fall is like retraining the amygdala in the present moment. With awareness, this becomes our super power to being with the anxiety that comes and managing it better. Waving to you with love, Marie-Louise from Cornwall, UK ❤

      @Laisa mine is I have more energy. And therefore I can do exercise longer. I can also see change in my physique. But more importantly is my mind is getting clearer.. I was depressed and anxious alot of times but doing this really helps.. But now I'm doing different breathing exercise I feel dpes this is effective even more, I learn it from health nuts channel.

    Yes we all have this within us and we can be open to it from birth. I remember at 9 years old experimenting with my breath and realising I could balance with it holding in diaphragm in a certain way. And have experimented with period pain and different movements and breathing and pressure points. And also whilst walking in pain. Breathing focus totally changed the walk ability. But it has to be utilised yes like a daily routine

    This a great technique! But here is another one: "When hands are busy, mind is resting" Which means if you want to greatly reduce stress and anxiety (probably even depression) go work, do something everyday for about 4 to 5 hours, keep your hands and body busy and your mind will rest.

      Correction, when you're busy with something you LOVE doing, then you're mind quiets down. When you're studying some boring stuff for example, your mind surely wanders like a monkey after a few minutes

      That is some bullshit the people who are laughing at us doing nothing other than manipulating social engineering for an hour or two a day, the rest they are drinking champagne and screwing and taking too quality drugs.
      They want us worked to death so we can never stand up.
      I personally like working because I have nothing else in my shitty life but if I had other stuff I wouldn't be putting myself through more work on top of work.

    And I must admit I thing its better to walk bare foot in the mountains in snow than in the City in drowning rain - but nomatter what its really inspiring techniques 💜

    I love the warm feeling after. Its like a warm summer day.I wash in hot water 1st then listen to at least 2 classical tracks chilling out in the cold shower. But I was worried if 10 or 15mins is to long in the cold shower? I check my bpm on my fitbit regularly and it's between 54 to 48.I exercise at least 3 times hard for 50 mins at a time. Then walk my dog for 2 hrs on the 2 rest days.I would like to swim in the sea at winter or better still lakes.

    I’ve been doing the cold showers and his breathing technique every morning for a month. I’ve had lifelong anaphylactic allergies to sesame seeds and some nuts. I got sushi two days ago right after taking my cold shower, breathing, and some yoga. I asked for a salmon roll without sesame seeds and began digging in. 2 pieces in I noticed they were covered in white and black sesame seeds. I got scared for a moment and then realized my mouth wasn’t itchy. HOW THE FUCK WAS MY MOUTH NOT ITCHY?!?! Please don’t experiment with this if you have allergies but I’m just sharing that my mind was fuckin blown, I either miraculously grew out of that allergy or this shit lowered my inflammatory response towards the seeds. What a gift.

    It hindsight it's so logical what Wim says. In caveman times there was no warm water, so washing was in cold water and acceptance of cold, like probably an animal. Warmth could've been found again at the fire place among people. Everything fits in a puzzle. Things that happen now in the world is unnatural and driven by ego.

    Ive been taking cold showers daily for a little over a year now and I haven’t had a cold since I started. Also my breathing is a lot deeper and my mind is more awake and active. I’m not sure about my stress levels but seeing as I haven’t been getting sick for a while now, its a good indicator that stress is a lot more naturally controlled. I while rarely take hot showers before bed if I feel like it because there isn’t a particular reason to take one unless I want to relax my muscles.

    So my dad started doing cold showers 20 years ago and still does it daily. My brother got covid because of someone on his bus and without him knowing he had it we also became sick me, my mom and my father. My father was positive with covid but he was the only one without any symptoms and did not feel any pain or anything. Everyone else including me was very sick(we do not take cold showers). So we concluded that cold showers are very healthy! I'm going to start taking cold showers also. Better then any other vaccine.

    I have a question. I just started doing cold showers (30 seconds) after the regular warm shower. But when I put my head under the cold shower I get "brain freeze" or my head goes numb. The rest of the body is fine, it's just the head that worries me. Should I keep my head in the cold water, or just my body?

      @ne kontam because where I live in south Florida is a hub for immigration, primarily from non English speaking island countries. Also being that Florida was initially a Spanish colony it’s actually pretty uncommon to find people fluent in multiple languages unless they are the children of immigrants. I just thought it was impressive considering I only know one language and learning another seems lengthy, then to become fluent shows commitment to the end rather than the bare minimum like me with Spanish or most islanders with English.
