Can submerging yourself in an ice bath be the best way to combat the cold? According to practitioners of the Wim Hof method, the combination of exposure to the freezing water and breathing techniques are key to regulating your body temperature.
During a typical session participants gradually lower themselves into a bath filled with ice cubes and remain immersed for a minute at a time. The alleged benefits are boosting the immune system, relieving stress, increasing energy levels, improving quality of sleep, and increasing tolerance to the cold - practitioners are known to usually be seen wandering around in a T-shirt and shorts in mid-winter. Wim Hof aka The Iceman himself runs events in London from time to time at big venues like the Roundhouse, or you can attend a more intimate workshop with an instructor trained by him.
