After my last epic fail of an ice bath, for my birthday yesterday, I decided to challenge myself by starting this next turn around the sun by conquering my fear and animosity toward ice baths. My goal was to stay in for 1 minute, and I told myself that if I made it that far, or even managed to dunk my shoulders underneath this time, it would be a success. Instead, I surprised the hell out of myself and made it through 3 MINUTES! Besides the breathing exercise that @aubrymarie showed me before I started, and the anti-hypeman hypemanning from @lifeinabeachtown, both of which were super helpful in getting me through, the real game changer was nature’s best anti-anxiety medicine: true laughter. The whole experience reminded me of the value and importance of maintaining a sense of humor and lightheartedness in life, especially in its most challenging moments. Thank you to my friends from near and far who were able to come celebrate with me last night, and to everyone who sent me birthday wishes and were here in spirit. Haven’t felt so much love and gratitude in a long time. I love all of you and can’t wait to see what this next year brings… including my next ice bath, when I’ll conquer my fear of dunking my head under the water. 🥶

BIG THANKS to @aubrymarie for filming and editing this video! You killed it! Rocking my usual @aloyoga. 😃
