3. Wow!

Nordic women are tough. I hear that taking ice baths like this are really good for mental health

7. Apparently, this woman does.

Her name is Jenna Jinton. She has a YouTube chann, where she has many videos of her vlog. I highly recommend checking it out. She is amazing!

8. Thank you, yuiyoshida for posting this. I was up all night watching her channel.

It was super relaxing to watch. My only problem is now I am green with envy.

9. I HAVE TO Say she IS Tough...

Because I am HALF POLYNESIAN- HAWAIIAN... I have always felt cold... and have struggled to keep warm ... and it wasn't until I visited TAHITI... that I realized just how comfortable I was there... and I suppose it was like a coming home.. I met other Polynesians ..some full blooded some mixed like me... But I absolutely hate being cold.. and here in San Francisco our Fog can be beautiful but its also very very cold and damp... and that seeps into everything where I live. So despite having lived here all my life, I have always wanted to find a place that is warm.

Secondly, My Japanese side would prefer a HOT TUB or an Onsen natural hot spring.. the one thing I plan to do, should I ever get the opportunity is to visit Japan and spend an entire week in a hot spring!!

I would imagine getting into that water naked would probably turn me from a nice tan to PURPLE BLUE.

10. I agree. Jonna is amazing!

I am of European descent, so I actually prefer cold weather to hot. It's in the low 80's here, but I am inside with the air conditioning on. I had heat stroke twice during my early childhood, and it seems to have left me with a life long intolerance of hot weather. However, I don't think that I could manage an ice bath. She must have a very strong heart and constitution. I love swimming in cold mountain water during the summer heat, but I don't think that I could manage that ice bath in the frozen lake. The sauna would have to be fired up, and I would have to hightail it to the sauna. Maybe I could cope with a bucket of that water splashed on me before entering the sauna, but sitting on the ice, followed by getting in and then dunking underneath? Nope, I don't think so. However, her videos are wonderful to watch. Thank you for bringing her to my attention. Now, I just wish that I could move north, to a colder climate in a very small village.
