Embracing discomfort: Wim Hof
Don’t Tell Me The Score

How to become more resilient – with the “Iceman” Wim Hof. Wim has numerous records to his name, including climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in just his shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle in bare feet and standing in a container full of ice cubes for nearly two hours. Wim has also been injected with an E. Coli endotoxin without showing any adverse reactions, and taught a group of volunteers how to achieve similarly remarkable results. Wim says we are all built to be “happy, strong and healthy” but by spending so much time in comfortable environments we have become less capable of dealing with stressful situations, however they show up. By consciously embracing the cold, he says we can influence our immune system for the better. Wim’s motto is “Die once a day, because it makes you so alive!”
