FoP (Funda of the Post): Taking bath in cold water is better for our health than in hot water.
When it is cold, most of us take bath in hot water. The most important thing is the 'first contact' of water on our skin. On a cold day, it feels good when the water is warm. So, those of you who use shower: just slowly turn the knob for the hot water @ few mm per 10 sec.. and you will realize, that in about a minute or two, the temperature of the water would have dropped off almost to room temperature but you wouldnt have noticed the change, since it was gradual.
For those who use bucket, let the initial water be warm, but then let a thin trickle of cold water fall into the water, so each mug of water you pour onto you would be colder by few fractions of a degree and again the gradual change would ensure that you wont jump when it has become cold water.
Now, the extreme cases: for those who cant bathe without warm water - time for a change; for those who manage to take bath in cold water even in winter - kudos to you!!! Share your secret.
