BITESIZE: Wim Hof - Consciously going into stressful situations

The ability to hack our health could be right inside us. That’s the view of Wim Hof - aka the iceman.

Among other things, he has run marathons barefoot beyond the polar circle as well as climbing through the "death zone" of Mt. Everest in only his shorts. He puts his achievements down to the Wim Hof Method – which has three components, cold exposure, breathing techniques and meditation.

Wim speaks about the importance of tapping into your inner pharmacy – and putting ourselves into stressful situations consciously – by using cold, water for example – to make us more robust and resilient. Continually seeking comfort is gradually killing us – he says, so go to the stress, before the stress comes to you.
