Best method of getting into cold water?

We recently opened our pool, and it's not the warmest. Sometimes I just slow and steady lower myself in, sometimes I just dive in and get the shock of the cold over with.

I've been sitting on my couch mentally preparing myself to go dive in for the past like hour.

Do you just jump in or do you take your time when water is cold?

  • I usually take my time, while rare sudden shocks to the body like suddenly being submerged in really cold water can send the body into shock and even kill you. Better safe then sorry.

  • You need to let your body know you're jumping into something too cold or hot by soaking the back of your neck.. (this is true, people have died from sudden body reactions). This lets your body know what it's expecting. Then just jump right in...

  • It's best to jump in, bc then once ur in the air there's no going bsck and it's just all at once. I only take my time bc I can't get my hair wet so I could jump in but I would if I could

  • Just jump in and keep moving that makes you get used to the water, and it doesn't feel cold anymore. Love swimming just do it. ✔️ 😏
