Rett's Roost 2nd Annual 'Behold the Cold' Polar Plunge
The 2nd Annual ‘Behold the Cold’ Polar Plunge in support of Rett’s Roost Retreats will be taking place both remotely and in-person at Ogunquit’s Main Beach on March 5th at 11am (extreme weather alternative – March 12th, 11am)!
If you haven’t yet heard of the benefits of submerging one self into freezing cold water as a form of therapy, then let me share, because at Rett’s Roost we love to promote self-care and easy, inexpensive ways to therapeutically support our wellbeing during trying times. You may know of athletes that take cold water baths. This “shocking” therapy is shown to benefit many ailments and diseases, chronic pain, fatigue, and mitigate anxiety and depression (see Wim Hof method and WebMD’s endorsement). We know how long winter can feel in Maine, and to maintain our sanity, it’s imperative to embrace the cold and dark months of the year just as much as we treasure our Maine summers.
That is why we think ‘Behold the Cold’ is the perfect annual fundraiser for Rett’s Roost. It’s part of our mission to use nature to heal and to be fully present and aware of both the sorrow and the beauty all around us.
